Join Our Team!
There are lots of ways you can get involved with the museum - have a look below and find an opportunity that suits you!
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.
We are also currently recruiting volunteers to help with translations to improve access to our collections and ensure that everyone gets the most out of their visit to us. We already have information in French, Dutch, Chinese and Japanese, but would love to provide more languages for our visitors. If you have foreign language skills and would be willing to spend a little of your time translating information about our collections then please get in touch! The great thing about this role is that you don't have to live locally - you can volunteer with us from anywhere in the world!
We welcome dedicated people to help shape the future of the museum. Are you...
Keen to get involved with the Highland community?
Passionate about preserving local history and culture?
Wanting to try something new?
Experienced in business or charity organisation?
If you are ANY of these things have you thought about becoming a Trustee of Glencoe Folk Museum?
Check out our Trustee brochure below to learn more!
Finally, we are looking for volunteers with skills in finance and construction to help advise our Board of Trustees during the Redevelopment Project. Check out the role profiles below for more details and to apply.
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 or pop into the museum to chat about our opportunities.
Alternatively, download an application form and return it to the museum.
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.
