Volunteering and internships at Kettle’s Yard

Since re-opening in 2018, we have had a lot of interest from people who would like to volunteer at Kettle’s Yard. Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community, learn new skills, make friends and professional contacts, and engage more deeply with a unique museum you already know and love. Kettle’s Yard has a diverse and talented pool of over 150 volunteers with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. We encourage interest from new voices and perspectives.

We accept volunteers aged 16 and over. Volunteers under 18 may be limited as to what volunteer opportunities are available to them. Volunteering is not equivalent to an internship, studentship or work experience. Paid internships and employment are advertised on our Jobs page. To find out more about work experience at the University of Cambridge Museums, visit their website for more details.

Can’t find what you’re looking for here? If you do want to give more of your time or get involved in the wider cultural landscape of Cambridge we recommend that you reach out to the University of Cambridge Museums or The Museum of Cambridge to hear about their opportunities.

Whatever your skill level or experience, there are opportunities for you to get involved with and support the museums.

Volunteer Open Evenings

We do regular volunteer recruitment three times per year. Our next volunteer open evening is Wednesday 16 October, 5 – 7pm. Members of staff and veteran volunteers will be on hand to talk about how to get involved.
