Summary

Love art? People person? We’re looking for volunteers to help look after our art gallery and give a warm welcome to visitors.

Detailed description

As a Front of House Volunteer, you’ll be key to the day-to-day running of Broadway Gallery. You'll help invigilate the gallery and be the friendly face that visitors see when they go in the door. You’ll also give expert information about exhibitions when visitors have questions (we’ll provide you with the information, don’t worry) and you’ll make sure the sites are kept safe and are a place for everyone to enjoy.

 

The impact you’ll have:

You’ll be helping local people and visitors to experience and engage with art, culture, local history and heritage which is a key part of wellbeing and at the heritage foundation. We are a Community Benefit Society with charitable status and a vision to make the world’s first Garden City a great place for everyone to live, work and visit. Volunteers play a key role in supporting our venues to provide a programme of exhibitions, events and educational activities that inspire our community.

 

What you will be doing:

  • Welcoming visitors and answering any questions about exhibitions
  • Looking after the artwork and exhibition pieces
  • Sell items from the Broadway Gallery
  • Answer the phone and help with any enquires
  • Helping to set up for events like private views and gallery hires
  • Other ad hoc tasks to assist with the gallery

 

This role is for you if you’re:

  • Friendly, polite, good with people
  • Proactive and happy to work unsupervised
  • Passionate about art, culture and history
  • Happy to complete the necessary training
  • Able to follow health and safety procedures


What’s in it for you:

  • Experience in a gallery / museum / culture and heritage sector
  • Learn in depth about local history, art and be part of exhibitions
  • Flexible volunteer role, you can fit around your schedule
  • Be part of making Letchworth a great place to live


Timings:

Broadway Gallery is open Wednesday-Saturday 10am-5pm. Volunteers typically give a few hours of their time each week on a morning or afternoon shift (but this can be as flexible as helping with one shift per month). The role is ideal for those who are available to volunteer for at least 6 months.


Disclaimer:

This role is subject to a DBS check and completion of required training within the first 3 months. Due to the role involving engagement with the public and the potential for periods of unsupervised volunteering, the minimum age for volunteers is 18.
