Volunteer Vacancies


Join our team as a volunteer.

Volunteering at Hahndorf Academy is a great way to meet new people and engage with the arts and heritage whilst giving back to the community.

We have a saying ‘what would we do without volunteers’

And this is so true, we have a great team who we appreciate and we are always on the lookout for new people to join us. We are a not-for-profit organisation and we rely on our volunteers to help us run our busy shop, museum and art galleries.  

The extensive amount of time, skills and knowledge that our team of volunteers contribute is priceless. If you are interested in assisting in retail, collection documentation, exhibitions, special events, administration, gardening or general maintenance, we are always ready to welcome people who are willing to join our dedicated team.
