Outreach Volunteer

To assist the Education & Outreach Officer at events across the Island to promote the work of the Shipwreck Centre & Maritime Museum at Arreton Barns.

This might involve standing with the officer at events and assisting with setting up / taking down of stands, setting up equipment (may include artefacts, dive kit, archaeological equipment) and discussing the museum with visitors to the stand.

Events may include locals Fayres, Riverfest, Garlic Festival etc and assist with the Discovery Bus.

Volunteers can attend as many or as few events as they wish and or how long they wish to attend for.

Please don\'t feel that you have to have a wealth of historical or maritime experience. This will be provided by the Education Officer at events however if you are interested there is huge opportunity to learn and more opportunity within the museum itself.


Must be happy to talk to public in a polite and professional manner as you will be seen as a representative of the Shipwreck Centre & Maritime Museum.

At times, the events may be in fields or riverbanks. This should not be seen as a deterrent. We do many events throughout the year and we need you to help us to do more.

More of the opportunity will be discussed at formal interview to be held at the Shipwreck Centre & Maritime Museum (or elsewhere by mutual agreement)
