Help us

Who are our volunteers?

Our volunteers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have lots of different reasons for volunteering.

What do volunteers do?

Volunteers help in almost all areas of the museum’s work.

Activities include:

  • Documentation
  • Collection research
  • Collection care
  • Family learning activities

There are also lots of one-off project opportunities at the museum which we advertise internally every three months via our volunteer newsletter.

What can we offer you?

  • Learn or develop new skills
  • Get to work in an awe inspiring environment
  • Get close up to an amazing collection of objects and see behind the scenes of a working Regimental HQ
  • Work with a friendly and sociable team
  • Reimbursement of volunteer travel expenses up to the value of £7 (payable against receipts)

When can I volunteer?

Most of our opportunities are Mon-Fri, 10.00-16.00pm. Some of our volunteers have regular shifts and come to the museum every week, or every fortnight; others just come when there is a project which is particularly relevant to them.

Can I do a work experience placement at museum?

The museum can take a limited number of school work experience placements from year 10 upwards. There are also opportunities for degree level and above students to undertake placements focussing on specific areas of the curatorial work.

* NB we will be recruiting participants for June/ July 2013 from January 2013*

How do I apply?

Your name
Contact details
Any relevant experience you think you may have.
What sort of opportunity you are looking for?
Why you want to volunteer?

Some people send a CV but if you do not have one just writing a quick note is fine!

What happens next?

We’re inbetween staff at the moment, so you may not get a reply immediately.  As soon as our new Museum Officer is in post, they will be back in touch.  We will ask you to come in for a visit and talk more about the options. All new volunteers have to provide some basic contact information, have a short induction and undergo a Tower of London security check but this can be done quite quickly if you are anxious to get started.

The beautiful new galleries at The Fusilier Museum, unveiled to the public on April 4th 2011 represent a significant fundraising effort. But they are only the beginning of the story.

Fundraising is ongoing for Fusilier Engage! which will engage local people with the museum for the first time. We have nearly reached our goal of £830,000 and you can help us reach our target.
