The Big Knit Blog- written by one of our young volunteers Aiden Here at Erewash Museum, we have contributed to World Wide Knit in Public Day again this year.

This Volunteers’ Week, I want to...

After retiring from workat the end of January last year I felt I would like to do something which wascompletely different to my working life and also hoped it would enable me tomeet new people. I haven’t been disappointed. A warm welcome is guaranteed fromthe moment you walk through the door; the museum is such a friendly place and Ihave also met some lovely people amongst the other volunteers too. I mostly do general admin work when I’m there which utilises my word processingskills, but I have also done such...

We are happy to be supporting National Volunteer's Week which runs until 12th June.  This third blog post focuses on how volunteering can contribute toward career development in our sector. Pursuing a career in museums and heritage can be a daunting task, it can be difficult to find out where to start, what qualifications you need, what different types of work you can do, and how much experience will be required for different job roles.  It's also an extremely rewarding career choice in an ever changing sector and one that attracts people who are inherently passionate about what they do. Whilst the...
