General Voluntary Opportunities

We are currently looking for new volunteers to join our vibrant and enriching volunteer programme.

You will receive one to one training in many areas from arts administration to front of house responsibilities, and be offered a thorough insight into the running of a contemporary art gallery. You may also gain experience in fields of technical setup, installation, design, marketing and communications. You will become a key member of a highly motivated team.

We will work hard to ensure your internship helps you build the essential skills, experience and confidence to enhance your future career prospects, and help you to identify fields of work you may like to pursue in the future.

Voluntary positions require a commitment of one day a week during gallery opening hours (Tuesday – Saturday, 11am – 5.30pm). We also ask for support from volunteers during exhibition previews and events (usually 6pm – 8pm).

Voluntary positions are reviewed regularly to ensure that you are developing the essential skills and experience to enhance your future potential. All positions are voluntary.
