As the first friendly face that visitors to the museum encounter it will be your task to welcome and inform visitors of the history, collections and any events which are taking place. You will also be involved in sales for the retail and Art Gallery areas.

The museum is currently open Thursday - Saturday, however from 2022, we plan to extend these hours and will require new volunteers to help us throughout the week, and are taking enquiries in preparation for this now.

What skills do I need?

Although you do not need prior knowledge of the Museum an enthusiasm for Horsham's local history and heritage is a must.

You will need to be a warm and dynamic individual who enjoys a role that is people facing.
