Voluntary work

Volunteers play an important role in enhancing the services we offer. The Museum of Royal Worcester is a registered charity established by Charles Dyson Perrins in 1946. It receives funding from charitable trusts and individuals, legacies, visitor entry, donations, and profits from the museum shop, events and hire.

Along with a team from the local NADFAS organisation who are carefully cleaning and restoring the books in our archive, we have a full team of excellent volunteers that assist in a variety of areas and activities, including previous Royal Worcester employees.

Volunteering can be carried out on a regular basis or ad hoc depending on your interests and our activities. We are currently recruiting volunteers for the Museum Shop, contact us on [email protected] for more information or to register your interest.

We are extremely lucky that at the moment we are at capacity with volunteers, both for our learning programme and archival research. In October 2017, we will begin to recruit for our Collections and Exhibitions volunteer roles and will welcome applications from all sectors of the community. No previous knowledge of porcelain is necessary. For any further information please contact Zoe Harris.

The Museum of Royal Worcester is not able to pay travel expenses at this time.
