Are you looking for experience in a museum? Do you have a passion for helping people learn about local history, community and diversity? Then Hackney Museum could be the place for you.


We're currently looking for volunteers to support our learning programme for Hackney primary schools, on an ad hoc basis. Volunteers will assist museum staff in delivering fun, interactive sessions for children, exploring the stories of the people who have moved to Hackney from all over the world and made it what it is.

For more information and an application form, please email josie.stevens@hackney.gov.uk.

Deadline for applications: Friday 26 January.

Training session: Wednesday 31st January, 3.30pm-5.30pm.

Work placements

Hackney Museum and Hackney Archives accept placement students from a wide range of courses, backgrounds and specialisms, from secondary school to MA or PhD students. If you're interested in local history and heritage, migration, community and cultural diversity then a placement with the learning or collections teams at Hackney Museum or Hackney Archives could be just right.

How to apply

Please email a covering letter and CV or expression of interest to Hackney Museum at hmuseum@hackney.gov.uk. We assess each application on a case by case basis, depending on the staffing and projects available at the time but we can't guarantee placement opportunities.

Jobs at Hackney Museum are advertised by the Council. Please do not contact Hackney Museum directly.
