The Galleries of Justice is looking for enthusiastic volunteers – after the museum was awarded £1m through the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The project supported by National Lottery players will see the museum relaunch as the National Justice Museum in Spring 2017.

Volunteers will form part of a new front of house team and will provide a warm welcome, excellent customer service and engage with audiences of all ages and backgrounds in the redeveloped museum.

The role is a flexible time commitment including weekends, school holidays and the occasional evening.

Duties will involve managing entrances, engaging with audiences, facilitating activities and supporting other staff.

Nicola Burley, Executive Director at the museum said: “This new development is very exciting for the museum and it’s a perfect time for new volunteers to join our team.

“The front of house volunteer role is ideal for those wanting new experiences, to develop new skills and contribute to a local charity.

“The role is perfect for friendly people, with good interpersonal and communication skills.

“Ideally we’d hope volunteers could offer at least a day per fortnight in order to get the most out of the experience.”
