Front of House volunteer role:

We are looking for friendly and approachable people to jump behind the hotseat of our front desk.

Front of house volunteers are the first point of contact for people coming into the museum and will be on hand to offer a friendly welcome and ensure the highest level of visitor satisfaction. Volunteering on the front desk is the perfect opportunity to get out of the house, learn new skills, meet new people and build confidence.

Tasks will include:

• Welcoming visitors to the museum.

• Handling cash, including selling tickets and shop products.

• Answering questions from visitors about the museum, our regimental history and the collection.

What are we looking for?

No previous experience is required, as all the necessary training will be provided once you have started. All we ask is that you have a positive attitude and a willingness to help our visitors engage with the museum and our regimental history.

We are looking for volunteers who can commit to regular slots of at least half a day. Ideally, we are currently looking for people to fill the following openings:

  • Monday afternoon: (13:30-17:00)

  • Alternate Tuesday afternoon (alternating with another volunteer): (13:30-17:00)

  • Wednesday morning: (10:00-13:30)

  • Saturday morning: (10:00-13:30)

  • Saturday afternoon: (13:30-17:00)

Social Media Marketing Volunteer role:

We are also looking for a new volunteer to create engaging and relevant social media content across our pages on various platforms. 

Our pages on Facebook, Twitter (or X), Instagram, and Tiktok help us to promote the museum's messages. Whether it's posting about a fascinating object from the musuem's collection, educating the public on our regimental history, promoting our events, or simply letting the public know what's going on here at The Wardrobe, we 

  • Work with our marketing assistant to plan posts.

  • Work collaboratively with our volunteers to research information for posts. 

  • Design content using free design tools, such as Canva.

  • Schedule posts across our platforms. 

Whether you're a social media whizz or just want to learn more, we want to hear from you!

No experience is necessary, as all training will be provided. All we ask for is a positive mindset and a creative approach to creating new content!

A Volunteer's Point of View

"Having volunteered at the Rifles Berkshire & Wiltshire Museum, in the centre of Britain's largest and most beautiful Cathedral Close, for the best part of three years, I have by now welcomed thousands of people into what is undoubtedly one of the finest small regimental museums in the land.  In doing so, I have been fortunate enough to meet some of the most interesting people whom I have ever had the pleasure of encountering, both in the form of visitors from across the world and, of course, in the form of the museum's own dedicated band of staff and volunteers.

More important, wherever they are from, and whatever their backgrounds, few visitors leave the museum unimpressed and without having had their perceptions of Salisbury - coloured as they maybe by recent events - enhanced by their experience.  I would therefore not hesitate in recommending the Rifles Berkshire & Wiltshire Museum to anyone who wishes to devote a few hours, wherever and whenever possible, to such a worthwhile and rewarding endeavour."
