Help give our visitors a warm welcome and encourage them to make a donation

Fundraising volunteers needed for Reading Museum & Town Hall in RG1

We are looking to create a small team of volunteers that will be able to support staff in welcoming visitors and generating income for the Museum. We are planning to trial our new visitor welcome service in the coming weeks.

Reading Museum has provided visitors with opportunities for learning, inspiration and enjoyment since 1883. Today, we have almost 500,000 accessioned objects of archaeology, art, natural history, social history and world cultures.

Visitor Giving is an important part of the Museum’s income and we receive donations from visitors every day.

In this volunteer role you will be supporting a dedicated and experienced gallery team by welcoming visitors, asking for a donation and explaining how their visitor donations will help the service.

We are looking for confident and friendly individuals who have the skills and personality to promote the museum whilst providing an excellent welcome experience for our visitors.

Experience in a customer-facing role (such as fundraising or sales) would be useful, but not essential as full training and support will be given to all volunteers.
