For Hockey Museum (The)
Who We Are
The Hockey Museum is the first and only museum of hockey in the world. We are a charity working to preserve, share and celebrate the rich history and heritage of the sport of hockey, not only in Britain where the ‘modern’ game started, but also from all around the world.
Would you like to play a part in our success story? We welcome anyone who would like to be involved in hockey’s history and heritage or is interested in museums and history generally. The Hockey Museum is committed to continuing to develop a diverse and inclusive environment for all our volunteers.
We have acquired the large archive of a military hockey historian and both the Surrey Museums Partnership and the Surrey History Centre are supporting us by providing premises for us to store and work on it.
We now need to put a team of volunteers together to carry out the initial assessment and conservation of the archive. No previous experience is needed as all training will be provided.
What We Have to Offer
This is an opportunity for you to learn about what goes on behind the scenes at a museum, e.g. preventative conservation, documentation, etc., alongside our museum professional staff, and gain a variety of valuable new skills and experience.
We are looking for someone interested in contributing to the development of a globally unique heritage organisation, in a friendly, sociable environment.
