Volunteer opportunities open up at the Museum of British Surfing
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 22 January, 2013 : - - The Museum of British Surfing needs your help – we’re looking for enthusiastic individuals with a keen interest in surfing to join the established volunteer programme at this award-winning and vibrant heritage attraction in North Devon.
We open to the public again with our new exhibition ‘Sixties SURFER!’ on March 28th, but before then there’s still plenty to get involved in behind the scenes.
Whether you’re a student looking to gain valuable work experience, a professional looking to give something back to the community, or actively looking to get your foot on the charity or surf industry ladder, this opportunity is tailor-made for you.
Newly recruited volunteers will help deliver excellent customer service to thousands of visitors and will also have the opportunity to get involved with marketing & events, learn about the charity sector and play their part in the UK’s growing surf industry.
The Museum of British Surfing opened the doors of its first permanent home in Braunton, North Devon, in April 2012. Prospective volunteers will provide front-of-house services to visitors and ensure first-class visitor satisfaction.
The museum has also staged temporary exhibitions all over the UK since 2004 that have been seen by more than 350,000 people. It became a Registered Charity (1131433) in 2009, establishing itself as the national body responsible for looking after Britain’s rich surfing heritage that dates back more than two centuries.
Individuals must be able to spare at least three hours a week.
