Job Vacancies and Volunteering

Education Volunteers needed!

We are looking for volunteers to assist our Learning Officer with primary school and cubs & brownies visits to the museum, and/or family workshops.

In your role you would: give guided tours of the cottage where Andrew Carnegie was born. Show some objects from our handling collection and discuss them with pupils. Encourage pupils to ask questions and to find out more about Andrew Carnegie and how his childhood influenced and inspired him to become a philanthropist. Training will be provided before you take on this role. As school visits are seasonal, this opportunity would be unlikely to occur every week, and the volunteer will be needed whenever we have school visits booked. The volunteers will be given sufficient notice of when they would be needed. 

If you are interested in arts & crafts, you may want to also help out with our family workshops which occur roughly once a month (usually on a Saturday afternoon). 

If you are interested in volunteering with us, please get in touch with Ms. Bragela Hornal (Learning Officer) by email: or telephone: 01383 724302
