The Princess of Wales’ Royal Regiment and Queen’s Regiment Museum at Dover Castle (located within the keep walls at Dover Castle, but unaffiliated with English Heritage) are looking for volunteers who would like to get involved in collections care, research, public engagement, and website development and social media.
Catherine Holt, the Assistant Curator of the museum, has come to speak at the University on a number of occasions over the last few years, and is very interested in welcoming new volunteers to the museum and providing training in all the different aspects of curation and museum management. If you would like to get involved, please contact her via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Princess of Wales’ Royal Regiment and the Queen’s Regiment Museum – based inside Dover Castle – have several volunteering opportunities available, to work with their staff as a Collections Assistant or a Museum Assistant.
These roles are excellent opportunities for any students interested in a career in the museums and heritage sector to gain some invaluable experience of working in a busy museum. Training will be provided, and travel costs to and from Dover Castle will be provided by the museum (applicants may also be eligible to receive funding from the University’s Experience of Work bursary scheme).
