Description

Linlithgow Museum needs you! Become a Welcome Host at our volunteer run five-star visitor attraction. Volunteering with us is a chance to be part of this fantastic wee museum and bring local history to life for visitors.

We are looking for enthusiastic & friendly volunteers to support our volunteer run museum. We have reopened and are looking for volunteers who can regularly give us three hours of their time a week to be Welcome Hosts. This role is incredibly important to the museum as the Welcome Host is the first person that visitors meet and can reassure visitors that they can safely visit the museum in a Covid secure manner. You’ll learn about the museum, meet new people, learn new skills and support your local small independent museum.

Volunteers do not need any experience as we will provide full training and a mentor who will offer support and advice.

The role would involve:
• Welcoming visitors and answering questions
• Opening/Closing the museum
• Operating the retail Space
• Collecting visitor information for Test and Trace purposes
• Cleaning the museum public areas.

We are looking individuals who have:
• Good people skills
• Good listening skills
• Willing to accept and follow instruction and ask if in doubt
• Have an interest in Linlithgow's history
