Interested in volunteering with the University Art Collection?

Perfect! We love working with volunteers.

We want you to feel part of our team, to have fun and meet new people, get a chance to explore a hobby or interest, or perhaps to gain experience in the workplace while developing supplementary skills to enhance a CV too.

Our roles are varied and well-supported, and volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds.  We aim to reflect the diverse community of Reading. We are accredited by Investing in Volunteers, the UK quality standard for good practice in volunteer management.

Volunteers help us in lots of ways, including connecting more people to our collections and events, and we’re dedicated to giving you the best experience possible.
