Due to the high volume of applications that we receive, we are unable to acknowledge receipt (unless specifically requested) or provide information on why an applicant has not been shortlisted.

Therefore, if you have not heard back from us within two weeks of the closing date, please assume that your application has been unsuccessful. However, we are grateful for the interest you have shown.

The National Army Museum gratefully acknowledges the help of volunteers whose time, energy and skills benefit our work and help us to achieve our mission.

Our relationship with volunteers is one of mutual benefit, responsibility and commitment. Volunteering is also an important part of our access strategy providing another level of access to collections and services.

Volunteering brings educational, developmental and/or social benefits to volunteers and is often an integral and important part of early career development in the sector.

Our aim is to expand the opportunities for volunteering to offer a wide range of roles across the Museum that will require different levels of skills, experience and suitability.
