Volunteering opportunities at the University of Cambridge Museums are advertised on our dedicated volunteering website, Volunteer Makers. 

We are so grateful to all our volunteers who offer their time, skills and experience free of charge and make an amazing contribution to our work. So far, over 2,300 members have signed up, taking part in more than 320 volunteering opportunities - from transcribing documents from home to running in-person museum tours for visitors.

Volunteers do not have a contract of employment but will usually sign a volunteer agreement setting out responsibilities and expectations. Volunteer opportunities vary in the time commitment required, from one-off events to more formal, recurring roles.

Work Experience

We work with a range of partner schools to offer work experience placements for students. Unfortunately we are currently unable to offer any other work experience opportunities at this time. 

Museums may run their own dedicated work experience placements, so we recommend checking individual museum websites. Where possible, we will list current opportunities below.
