Volunteer Opportunities

Recruiting Women’s History Detectives

We’d like to grow our team of Women’s Heritage Walks tour guides and would love to hear from you if you are interested in women’s history, or want to learn more, and who want to contribute to making women’s achievements, lives and contributions more visible and better known.

Visual Communication Residency

We are again looking for a talented, positive and engaged emerging visual communication designer to join us for a residency for 12 months. This is a voluntary position, which we imagine is suitable for recent graduates (within the last year) or someone with equivalent experience.

Volunteering Opportunities

We are looking for volunteers to join our team in the new year. Do either of these roles sound like they might be for you?
