Over the past 50 years, The Musical Museum has been run almost entirely by volunteers. We are extremely grateful to them for their invaluable enthusiasm, skills and support, which helped us to win "Highly Commended - Volunteer Team of the year" at the Museum and Heritage awards. .
We welcome everyone from all backgrounds and expertise, and have opportunities to suit accordingly - from instrument restoration, to reception, audio-visual, tour guides, gardeners, accounting, marketing... and many more.
We are a friendly bunch who enjoy regular get-togethers and offer a great working environment.
Become a Trustee
We are seeking new Trustees to broaden the mix of individuals who make up our board of Directors, and encourage a broad spectrum of applications. We are looking for individuals with a professional background and in particular, experience of fundraising, marketing, venue hire, collections management/curation or education to help us deliver our charitable aims. We operate an equal-opportunities policy – regardless of age, sexuality, gender or ethnicity, we welcome applications from anyone with relevant leadership experience.
Trustees are not paid a salary; instead you will be able to apply your skills, experience and contacts to help us grow the museum's visitors, reach new audiences, and build a sustainable future for our collections.
This is a great opportunity to shape the future of this unique Museum. Interested parties should request a recruitment pack from HBRL Consulting: firstname.lastname@example.org.
