We often have volunteer opportunities at Henry Moore Studios & Gardens in Hertfordshire.
Volunteering with one of our teams offers first-hand insight into the work of one of the world's most notable sculptors and the chance to experience the day to day operation of an international arts organisation. Our volunteers help us to continue Henry Moore's mission to encourage public appreciation of the visual arts. All of our tour guides, who provide friendly and expert tours to our groups and schools are volunteers. We also have volunteer teams working in the Henry Moore Archive and in our extensive grounds at Henry Moore Studios & Gardens
Become a Volunteer Guide
Following the successful opening of our new visitor facilities at Henry Moore Studios & Gardens, we are looking to recruit new members of our Volunteer Guide team, who lead tours for adult groups and school parties during the visitor season from Easter to late October.
The time commitment is flexible to accommodate your availability – anything from a couple of tours a month to a couple a week. Tours include the sculpture grounds, studios and gallery and usually take place over 2 hours in the mornings from 10am or early afternoons on Wednesdays to Fridays. The dates of tours are arranged in advance with individual Volunteer Guides on a one to one basis.
The role requires: an enjoyment in engaging with the public; an enthusiasm for the arts; an ability to relay information in an interesting and engaging manner; and confidence in talking to groups of people. Specific training will be provided about Henry Moore and his work. Travel expenses are paid at 45p per mile. We ask our volunteers to be reliable and punctual and to make a commitment for a fixed term of usually one season at a time.
If you would like to learn more about joining our team, please send expressions of interest with details about yourself and your availability to Terry.Millson@henry-moore.org
