"Volunteering at the Little Museum has been one of the most rewarding and enjoyable things I've done in years."– Andrea Carr, Cabra
Our volunteers have long memories and good stories. While working here can be tiring, and the building gets very busy, our volunteers usually love the experience. They are an integral and hugely popular part of the team here at the people’s museum of Dublin. Would you like to join us?
To volunteer for one or two days a week, please email susie [at] littlemuseum.ie
The museum offers student internships. They provide suitable candidates with an opportunity to gain valuable experience of working in a small, dynamic cultural organisation. Each internship lasts a minimum of eight weeks. Unfortunately we cannot consider applications from students who are available for less than eight weeks.
At the moment we are looking for exceptional students of Hospitality, English, History, Public Relations, Photography, Web Design, Archival Studies and Museum Studies.
Candidates must have fluent English. The majority of each intern's time is spent on the floor, greeting visitors to the museum and ensuring that the building runs smoothly. The other part is spent in research and office tasks. Candidates with a particular interest in a subject – such as history, curating or public relations – will be given specific tasks in their chosen area.
To apply, please send your CV by email to: susie [at] littlemuseum.ie
