We are looking for a highly self-motivated individual with experience in volunteer management to join our small team and lead on developing and delivering the volunteer programme at the Museum of East Asian Art in Bath.

You will be passionate about working with people, and responsible for nurturing our existing volunteer community while also recruiting, training and managing both in-person and remote volunteers, making sure our volunteers feel both valued and supported. Our dedicated group of volunteers contribute in multiple ways including front-of-house and gallery guides, or through remote digital micro-volunteering and social media opportunities. They assist with activities and events and help to deliver aspects of our learning programme.

You will work closely with the team to design and implement a comprehensive training programme for new and existing volunteers, ensuring they are equipped to deliver an exceptional visitor experience.

The Museum has a unique collection of East and Southeast Asian objects in its collection, with the vast majority from China. While it is not a requirement that the Volunteer Manager has experience in this area, some knowledge would be beneficial.
