We are looking for volunteers to join the dynamic and successful Members’ Activities Team that organise the talks, trips and Ashmolean-based activities for fellow Members.

A message from our team of volunteers:

We are the group that organise the talks, trips and Ashmolean-based activities that our Members enjoy so much. Our recent programme of activities has been restricted to online events, but we've been delighted with the response to our monthly online talks in recent months, delivered by curators.

The situation is still uncertain, but we hope to run a full programme of events again in 2022. If the idea of joining our small team sounds appealing, please download our Role Description (pdf) and register your interest by following the instructions in the document. We will then send you a full volunteer role description and begin the application process.

We are looking for volunteers who:

  • Have ideas for talk topics and visits, relevant to the Ashmolean, or relating to art and archaeology.
  • Are happy to organise coach trips, including the venue, the coach, refreshments, health and safety, etc.
  • Are willing to host talks online using Zoom.
  • Enjoy being part of a team.

All new volunteers will receive full training and will begin their role by ‘shadowing’ another member of the team.

For more information about the role and how to apply, please download the Role Description (pdf). The deadline for registering interest is 26 November.
