Are members of the JQ Heritage Squad and also work with other local cultural organisations and charities across the Jewellery Quarter on a flexible and ad hoc basis. All roles are designed to be customisable based on your interests and the time you have available including remote volunteering, weekend and evening only options. Pooling our resources also allows us to provide more training and social opportunities for the team.

Covid-19: Most in person volunteering has been suspended during 2020 due to the pandemic, but we have been offering online and remote volunteering options and training courses, plus in person options for small outdoor groups or individuals/households where possible. Get in touch to find out what options we have coming up in line with current restrictions.
