Jobs and volunteering at the Bronte Society


The Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth attracts people from all over the world. Some are making a once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage to see the home of their favourite authors, but many return year upon year to see the new exhibitions and changing displays.

We welcomed some 70,400 visitors to the Museum in 2019 and providing the best possible customer service is of immense importance to us. Comments collected via TripAdvisor, social media and other visitor books indicate that the visitor experience at the Brontë Parsonage Museum is overwhelmingly positive.

The dedication and commitment of our staff and volunteers is key to these results, as our feedback testifies.
