Getting Involved

Volunteering is a fantastic chance to get involved in something you enjoy, meet new friends, gain experience and have a real feeling of benefiting your community.

Whether you are 16 and just starting out, looking to gain experience in heritage or looking to retire and try something new – you may very well be able to help us.

Museums are a great way to engage with history and help families learn about their heritage and here at The Collection we like to make sure everyone that comes to visit has a great time. 

Whether it is looking around one of our vibrant temporary exhibitions, trying to find their house on our aerial floor map of Lincolnshire or investigating bronze age gold, longboats or Early Medieval Lincoln, there is a chance to learn something new.

We have the following opportunities available: 

Volunteers wanted for Battles and Dynasties Exhibition (27th May to 3rd September 2017) - We are looking for lively and positive volunteers who, throughout the exhibition, will support our existing team in helping visitors make the most of their visit. You will welcome visitors, check tickets, help visitors find their way around and direct them to the exhibition. Working alongside our Front of House team, you'll demonstrate excellent people skills and deliver high standards of customer care to ensure visitors have an enjoyable day out.  You will provide that all-important first impression to visitors and users.  Above all else, you will make sure that every single person who visits the site has a memorable experience.

Visitor Experience Volunteers  - You are likely to be the first person many of our visitors will encounter when they come to spend their day with us so we are looking for volunteers who are positive, have a sense of fun and want to make their day as special as possible.  You will be able to help them find their way around, tell them about all of the latest things we have on offer and generally get excited about history.  You will also help run our small gift shop on a day to day basis.  We have two main parts to our site – The Collection and the Usher Gallery meaning there will be plenty to learn about our art collection as well and help be ushers in our temporary exhibitions.

Volunteer Coordinator – our volunteers are amazing and we need to make sure they have someone who looks after their administrative needs.  We are looking for someone who is passionate about volunteering, has a good eye for detail and can organise rotas and paperwork that lets our volunteers concentrate on welcoming our visitors.  You will also need to be comfortable with IT and Microsoft Office.
