INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING AT THE MUSEUM?

Do you enjoy meeting people from all over the world? Do you have free time that you would like to put to good use by helping visitors to the Brontë Parsonage Museum have an enjoyable experience? If the answer is 'Yes', you might consider becoming a Volunteer at the Museum.

The Bronte Parsonage Museum is an independent charity which runs a volunteer programme to supplement our Front of House staff and Learning Officer.  Our volunteers are an invaluable part of keeping the Museum running and get involved as Visitor Experience volunteers, or with delivering walks and talks as part of the Learning Team, or working with our volunteer gardening team. In general there is no minimum time you must give but as volunteer it would be beneficial to have regular involvement.

The Museum is open on a daily basis, throughout the full year, and is open from 10.00am to 5.00pm.


Our visitor numbers are currently very high, particularly at the weekends, so we are very keen to hear from people who may be able to assist by volunteering some time on either a Saturday or a Sunday.

The Museum conducts quarterly intakes of volunteers and upon receipt of a Volunteer Application Form arrangements will be made for you to attend an introductory meeting with the Museum Manager or Learning Officer.  

All volunteering will take place at the Museum and reasonable travel expenses will be paid in line with the Volunteer Policy 2016.
