Jobs and volunteering at the Bronte Parsonage Museum

A MUSEUM FOR EVERYONE

The Bronte 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 76,767 visitors to the Museum in 2018.  Providing the best possible customer service is of immense importance to us and comments collected via TripAdvisor, social media and other visitor books indicate that the visitor experience at the Bronte Parsonage Museum is overwhelmingly positive.

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

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 Registraton 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.
