Volunteer at the museum

Volunteers are an integral part of our team.

As a volunteer, you will contribute both to the development of museum activities as well as day-to-day operations, ensuring a warm welcome for all our visitors.

Work Experience

The Design Museum recognises that work experience is different from volunteering.

The museum is currently focusing on core activities and consequently regrets it does not have the capacity to organise work experience placements, neither for groups nor individuals.

Volunteering opportunities

The museum offers primarily volunteering roles that suit people who enjoy working with the public, speak excellent English, offer great customer service skills and can be available on a regular basis, e.g. Welcomer. This and other volunteering opportunities are advertised on this page when the museum seeks additional support.

Please note that we're not currently recruiting Welcomers. New opportunities will be posted on this page, please check again in the future.
