volunteer roles

  • Heritage volunteers that can deliver building tours, guided walks and workshops with schools, community groups and the public to help us promote Maryhills’ history. Some heritage volunteers have helped us research local history and manage and interpret our growing heritage collection. There are plenty of opportunities to help us safeguard and promote Maryhills’ unique history, so please let us know how you would like to get involved. We are also looking for museum ambassadors, who specifically help maintain and promote the Maryhill Museum in the Halls.

  • Reception Volunteers help us ensure the smooth day-to-day running of the hall by greeting and directing visitors and event attendees, both face-to-face and over the phone. This is great opportunity for anyone looking to gain reception, customer service or events experience, with morning and afternoon volunteering slots available Monday - Friday.

  • Administration/Event Volunteers carry out a wide range of tasks that help us to ensure customers are looked after from the moment they make an enquiry until their event is complete. This role provides valuable experience for those looking to work in administration, events or marketing and a great opportunity to gain a range of skills in an interesting and varied environment.

We provide in-house and where possible external training to support our volunteers and we reimburse travel expenses to and from the Burgh Halls from the Greater Glasgow area. We have teamed up with Volunteer Glasgow which have a fantastic range of skills development opportunities for volunteers from Saltire Awards to employability skills courses.
