Volunteers Our volunteers are involved in many areas of the organisation and in many different ways, from departments requiring skilled assistance to other areas where enthusiasm is the only qualification! Our main volunteering opportunities can be split into four main groups: administration, collections, public programmes and events. Interested in volunteering for us? See what volunteering possibilities are available below. You can also follow us on Twitter, where we'll keep you updated on the latest opportunities. Administration There are many departments where assisting with administrative and clerical tasks are of enormous value. This may include helping staff with computer or data entry, or office tasks such as filing or envelope stuffing for mail-outs. We currently have no opportunities, but please check back with us soon. Collections Within collections you will mostly be behind the scenes helping us with essential support work - from sorting and labelling specimens of materials, cataloguing or archiving collections to re-housing or packing items to literature research, depending on your own skills and experiences. We currently have no opportunities, but please check back with us soon. Public programmes Within this area there may be opportunities as a volunteer guide, assisting with visitor surveys, helping with workshops and activities for all age groups. Latest opportunities: aircraft guides Events Would you love to volunteer but don’t have the time to make a regular commitment? We run an exciting programme of ‘one-off’ events at our museums, for which we need volunteers to help. No experience is necessary just lots of enthusiasm and a 'hands on' approach. Latest opportunities: Airshow 2013 volunteers What's in it for you? Opportunities to develop valuable skills and experiences within the museum sector. Enjoyment in doing something you like while meeting new, like-minded people. Involvement with helping to support the work of National Museums Scotland.
