Volunteer at Cosford

At present we only have opportunities for Holiday Activities Volunteers.  There are no vacancies for Fun and Flight Explainers, Tour Guides or Engineering at this time.

We will not be able to accept any expression of interest forms for these areas or retain them for future use. We will update the website when the situation changes.  

Holiday Activities Volunteers

If you are looking for an opportunity to engage with a wide range of people, doing something practical, then this could be the role for you. 

These events run at various times throughout the year primarily on weekends or during school holidays. Activities include leading ‘make and take’ craft sessions to supporting our larger events such as the Cosford Food Festival. 

We welcome applications from people of all abilities, backgrounds and communities.

  • are reliable, friendly and enthusiastic
  • have good communication and interpersonal skills, especially with children
  • work well in a team
  • help people get the best out of an experience and encourage others to take part
  • provide a friendly welcome to all
