Front-of-house volunteers

Do you see yourself helping visitors as a front-of-house volunteer?

This is volunteering in the Programming Unit and involves introducing the exhibitions and displays in the public galleries to visitors to the Museum.

You will meet and greet Museum visitors, take general tours, assist in special public events and help Programming staff. 

Front-of-house volunteers help on any of the days of the week and are expected to make a commitment to volunteer one day a week or fortnight on a regular basis. 

We are looking for volunteers with good communication skills. You are fluent in English as you will be required to follow instructions and assist visitors if there is an emergency evacuation.

New front-of-house volunteers are recruited every 12-18 months depending on vacancies. When applications open you will receive an information package with a short application form to complete. There are limited spaces in each intake, applications are assessed and interviews held. If your application is successful you will be expected to attend a comprehensive Induction program.

All volunteers are required to support the Australian Museum's vision and adhere to all policies, guidelines and procedures.

You can register your interest at any time by emailing Isobel Kindley with your name and contact details.
