Essex: Police Museum volunteers wanted
12:30pm Thursday 7th March 2013 in News
Essex Police Museum is looking for volunteers to help look after its visitors.
The award-winning museum at Essex Police Headquarters in Springfield, Chelmsford, is a registered charity, which aims to tell people about the history of Essex Police. The museum, which is now open every Saturday, relies on volunteers to provide assistance to visitors during its opening hours.
Working as part of a team, volunteers will be required to work shifts in the museum on Saturdays between 9.30am and 4.30pm, greeting visitors, recording visitor statistics, running the museum shop, assisting with family craft activities and helping with general museum ‘house-keeping’.
Museum curator Becky Wash said: "This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone with an interest in museums or policing and working with the public. Whether you are a student wishing to gain work experience or retired with some free time to spare, volunteering at Essex Police Museum can help you gain new skills and provides a valuable service for your local community.”
Volunteers will be asked to commit to working at least one four-hour shift a month. Applicants will be interviewed and subject to police vetting and those who are successful will be given training as necessary.
