Current opportunities...
Our main need is for exhibition stewards who support Front of House in the smooth running of the museum. As an exhibition steward you will be welcoming our visitors, animating the exhibits and helping with our events. We are also looking for volunteers to help with our school visits during the week and with backstage repairs to keep our exhibitions ready for use. All of our roles are flexible, so if you are interested in wearing more than one hat...we absolutely encourage it!

What do you need to do? Complete a brief application form and e-mail it to Jessica.Corfield@storymuseum.org.uk
You will need to attend a training session (around 60 minutes) at which you’ll receive some basic training and learn about our current exhibition and activities. We ask you to commit to at least two half days a month.

Ultimately, we are looking for people who are friendly, enthusiastic and have a love of stories in all their forms - if this is you, please get in touch!
