We are always looking for enthusiastic Front of House volunteers to join our friendly team during the open season (April-October). Volunteering opportunities are available for anyone over the age of 16 - no experience required, just a willingness to learn, a love of local history and a desire to pass knowledge onto others. It is a great chance to meet visitors from all over the world and help make their visit to Glencoe a memorable one.
Volunteering is a great way to expand your horizons, both socially, by meeting lots of new and different people every day, or professionally, by gaining new skills and invaluable museum experience.
Email Catriona at firstname.lastname@example.org or pop into the museum to chat about our opportunities.
Alternatively, download an application form and return it to the museum.
We currently have an exciting opportunity for someone to join our Front of House team as a paid Museum Assistant!
The purpose of this role is to greet and assist visitors at the reception of Glencoe Folk Museum, providing a friendly welcome and the best possible visitor experience. You will be the face of the museum, meeting people from all over the world and sharing your love of Glencoe with them!
This role would be ideal for someone looking for flexible additional hours to fit around another part-time job/childcare, or a student looking for weekend/summer work.
Our volunteers are the heart and soul of the museum, and we honestly couldn't manage without them. They bring so much passion, personality and warmth to the front desk, and it is clear from our reviews how much visitors appreciate this personal touch!
Iona, Front of House
I like volunteering here because I get to meet lots of people everyday. I also get to know a lot more about the local history in the area and the variety of visitors we get from all over the world. The skills I have learnt so far from volunteering here will help me in later life.

One of the main reasons I volunteer is to pass on my knowledge and to keep history alive. There are so many stories out there just waiting to be told, and where better to hear them than in the local museum?
Volunteering is also a great way of meeting people with similar interests... Everyone is really friendly here and the work is fascinating.
