Volunteering Opportunities with Axminster Heritage.

Interested in local history, community  and developing new skills while making new friends? If you answered yes to any of these questions then volunteering with Axminster Heritage might be just what you’re looking for!

Here at the heritage centre we are currently looking at expanding our wonderful team of volunteers. Whether you’re 18 or 80 we have a role that’s right for you. If you’re under 18 and would like to volunteer as part of your Duke of Edinburgh Award programme, to develop your CV or because you just love history then we’d love to hear from you too!

Listed below are details of our current volunteer vacancies. This list is not exhaustive, so if you want to volunteer with us but don’t see anything that interests you please do still get in touch with us as there are lots of ways for you to get involved with Axminster Heritage. As well as our front desk – which is a great role for those who enjoy meeting new people, we also have a wide-range of sub-committees that are looking for new volunteers such as: Collections, Fundraising, Marketing and Tourist Information.


Current Vacancies

Front Desk: – If you enjoy meeting new people and helping visitors get the most out of their visit then you might like to become one of our front-desk volunteers. There are two shifts to choose from on the front-desk – morning (10am – 1pm) or afternoon (1pm – 4pm) and you will be working with another volunteer as we always like to have a minimum of two volunteers on at any one time.

Heritage Alive Committee: – Details shortly

Marketing Committee: – Details Shortly

Volunteer Coordinator: – The role of volunteer coordinator at Axminster Heritage Centre involves ensuring we have enough volunteers to cover the front desk during our opening hours. The coordinator is also in charge of training front desk volunteers and supporting them to get the most out of their experience. This role would probably work well as a ‘job share’ between two volunteers.


In addition to these specific roles we also have many other opportunities available. For more information or to apply for any of these vacancies please email Becca at volunteer@axminsterheritage.org
