The Estorick Collection in Islington seeks your help. Volunteers already help our staff to offer a friendly and informed welcome to our visitors, and now we are looking for more.
The Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art is an internationally renowned Museum housed in a Grade II Georgian building in Canonbury Square, Islington. The Collection is known internationally for its core of Futurist works, as well as figurative art and sculpture dating from 1890 to the 1950s.
We are looking for volunteers to welcome our visitors and look after the safety of our collection. Your role will be varied; one day you might be in our shop selling tickets and welcoming visitors, another you could be in one of the galleries invigilating and helping visitors make the most of their visit.
You will however be placed where need is greatest, which tends to be in the exhibition galleries. You need to be approachable and friendly, and willing to volunteer on a regular basis (preferably weekly) for at least 6 months.
You will be fully trained in the role and gain excellent experience in customer service as well as an understanding of how a small museum works.

To apply please email email@example.com with a CV and covering letter.
