Volunteering @ Midlands

Our volunteers get involved in a diverse spread of roles across the Museum’s different departments. We regularly review the ways in which volunteers can support the work of the Museum, and are often adding new volunteer roles.

This page gives an overview of the kinds of roles available. To see which roles we are currently advertising for, click Get Involved.

Visitor-facing volunteering

Volunteers help us to ensure that all visitors to the RAF Museum receive a warm welcome, and find their visit interesting and engaging. Through a variety of front-of-house roles, our volunteers deliver guided tours, supervise open cockpits, help visitors and school groups to access the interactive elements of the Museum and much more. Volunteers are also key to the success of our public events programme, whether that is cheering runners on during the Spitfire 10K race, welcoming visitors to the Cosford Air Show, or teaching children to make the best paper aeroplanes at one of our sleepovers.

Behind-the-scenes volunteering
From the engineering volunteers who care for the objects in our collection, to those who help us raise the funds we need to continue achieving our vision, our volunteers play a vital role in supporting the behind-the-scenes work of the RAF Museum.
