Volunteering

The generous support of volunteers makes a huge difference to the services that the Pitt Rivers is able to offer visitors. Are you able to give some time to the Museum?

Volunteer guiding service

If you can spare time during the week, why not think about becoming a Pitt Rivers Guide? We will give you full training so Family friendly activitiesthat you can help groups to get the most out of their visit to the Museum. The Guides work in teams taking pre-booked parties around the Museum in groups of 8-10 at a time. You would be working mainly with school groups on weekday mornings and might like to have a look at our education web pages to get a feel for the sort of tours we offer.

If you have relevant skills, such as in conservation or research, and would like to volunteer your help let us know your area of interest. We do benefit greatly from this sort of specialist assistance, although our ability to accept offered help will depend on what projects are available at the time of asking. We will require a CV covering the skills you have to offer, details of when you are interested in volunteering, and how much time you can offer.
