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: 

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.
