Interested in local heritage? We are looking for people who can tell the Slaughterhouse story to visitors. The role will include training and involve you helping with the research process, greeting visitors, guiding them around the exhibition, answering questions and serving in the cafe. An important part of the role is making visitors feel welcome and helping them to get the best visitor experience from the exhibitions and gallery space. Have a listen to Becca talking about her volunteering experience.
