Volunteering and internships at Kettle’s Yard

Since opening, we have had a lot of interest from people who would like to volunteer at Kettle’s Yard. It may take us some time to get back to your request.

If you do want to give more of your time or get involved in the 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.

Paid internships and employment are advertised on our Jobs page.

Whatever your experience, there are opportunities for you to get involved with and support the museums.  The University of Cambridge museums offer a limited number of work experience placements, internships, apprenticeships and volunteer opportunities. Visit their Get Involved pages to see what opportunities are available. 

The University of Cambridge Museums truly appreciates the time given by people filling these roles as they contribute to the meaningful delivery of the museums’ aims and objectives.
