Volunteers are vital to the museum and there are many different ways in which you can help.
The Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology (MAA) is in the process of improving a discrete archaeological collection of Palaeolithic material, for which it is jointly responsible, in the form of updating the collections management database entries, barcoding storage boxes and repacking where necessary. To assist in this project, we are recruiting two volunteers from 10 to 21 April 2017. For further details about this role and how to apply please visit the University of Cambridge Museum’s website.
The museum’s front of house volunteers provide a warm and friendly welcome to our visitors and support the and other members of staff in supervising the exhibition galleries. In addition to dealing with enquiries from visitors, they help with the museum shop and perform various other roles.
No prior knowledge or experience is necessary but punctuality, reliability and interpersonal skills are important, as is a willingness to take responsibility for areas such as health and safety and security procedures.
Please download a role description to find out more and, if you think you might be interested in joining the team, fill in a UCM Volunteer Expression of Interest Form and return it by email to Lilja Addeman, or by post to Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Downing Street, Cambridge, CB2 3DZ.
Evaluation volunteers help the Museum to find out what people think of the Museum displays, events and activities. Volunteers can help by speaking directly to visitors or by entering interview and other data.
If you would like to volunteer, please contact Sarah-Jane Harknett.
