Lend us your time!

We greatly value the incredible work our dedicated volunteers do, from supporting with graphic design, writing articles, supporting with social media and marketing, and welcoming visitors to the museum.

Volunteer opportunities

We aim to provide our volunteers with the best experience possible. All volunteers support with general tasks such as helping us open up in the mornings and close down in the evenings, gallery invigilation and visitor welcome, but we also aim to provide opportunities for volunteers to work on more specific areas of interest.

Possible areas volunteers can support:

  • Learning Programme - supporting with schools, young people and family workshops

  • Spotlight Tours - providing visitors with more detailed information about specific artworks on display

  • Marketing & social media - production of marketing materials, or writing and scheduling social media posts

  • Events - supporting with venue hire and public events

  • Shop - product photography, volunteer book of the week reviews, customer service and ticket sales

  • Collections / Research - support with exhibition and collection research

  • Ambassadors - attending cartoon and comic events, representing the Cartoon Museum

  • Evaluation - recording and analysing people’s experience of the museum and its public programme, supporting future planning

You may also feel you have a particular skill set that might be of use to the museum - if so, we would love to hear from you!
