Current opportunity

Dumfries & Galloway Aviation Museum is a small independent museum and is entirely run by volunteers. We are looking to recruit volunteers for our retail team. We are looking for friendly and customer focused people who want to work in a caring, friendly and supportive environment. You don’t have to be interested in aviation or heritage but we do ask that you are enthusiastic and have a willingness to learn. This is an ideal opportunity for someone looking for work experience, looking to get back into the workplace or someone who just has a few hours to spare. You can volunteer as little as a few hours per week and if you feel that the shop is not the place for you, we have many volunteering opportunities throughout the museum. Your role as a retail assistant: Welcoming visitors to the museum Taking admissions Working the till Replenishing stock Keeping the displays tidy
