Summary

Museum Events Assistant (Volunteer)
Casual hours dependent on availability (majority of events are through half-terms and School holidays)

Detailed description

The Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum is located in Gloucester’s Historic Docks, is one of the top tourist attractions in the City, and is at an exciting point in its development.

The museum is in need of a Volunteer Events Assistant to support the Events Manager in the preparation and delivery of a number of small to large-scale museum events throughout the year. These can range from half-term children’s activities (such as object handling workshops or crafts), to running outdoor stalls on large event days (such as Gloucester Goes Retro, or Gloucester Day).

The successful candidate will be energetic, organised, reliable, and approachable. Good communication skills are a must, the ability to work on their own initiative, and to work well with the existing Museum team.

This is a casual position and the working hours will therefore be flexible around the availability of the successful candidate, but would ideally be at least 3 or 4 hours per week or fortnight. 

A full job description can be downloaded on our museum website.

To apply for this position, please email your CV no later than Friday 17th February 2023. If you have any questions, please email this address. 

Chosen candidates will be invited for an informal discussion at the museum during week commencing 20th February 2023, before a suitable candidate is selected.

About Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum

This museum is dedicated to the memory of all those who have served their country as Soldiers of Gloucestershire.

The Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum is located in Gloucester’s Historic Docks. We reopened in April 2014 after a significant Heritage Lottery funded refurbishment. Come and discover the lives of Gloucestershire soldiers from the last 300 years. Try on Army uniforms, look into a First World War trench, learn about medals and how soldiers won them through history with our interactive displays. Do you know how the Gloucestershire Regiment won the Back Badge? See how the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars survived fighting in the desert? Have you felt how heavy a Rifleman’s rucksack is? With changing exhibitions and our Soldiers of the Month display, there is always something new to see. There is plenty for the whole family to do, children's games, uniforms to try on plus a free quiz. Our story begins in 1694, travels through the Napoleonic Wars, the Age of Empire, Worlds Wars, Korea and right up to modern day conflicts. Come and discover the stories of twelve generations of Gloucestershire soldiers.
