Pac Lunch Shop Volunteer
On a busy day at the Centre, the cafe is often the busiest part of the building. We've kept the cafe running so far by jumping in and staffing it whenever we spot someone waiting at the window. We'd like to improve it by recruiting volunteers specifically to work the cafe.
We're looking for someone who's happy to stay in the cafe even when visitors aren't nearby. We're more than happy for you to occupy yourself with a book or your phone, as long as that cafe stays occupied. At a later date we'd like to have volunteers who can arrange restocking and even come up with new ideas to improve the cafe, but for now, if you can make a good cuppa, we'd love to have you. If you know of others who'd like to help, even better - you could form the foundation of a new cafe team.
- Comfortable chatting with visitors
- Basic cash handling skills
- Able to make a mean cup of tea!
- No computing knowledge or previous experience required
Come and Join the Team!
We are a relaxed and welcoming team. The working atmosphere is fun but professional. Tea and coffee is available for free from our 'Pac Lunch Shop' and as a volunteer you are welcome to all of our special events for free.
To be able to do this role you will need to be able to get to the museum in Cambridge.
The critical time for this role is Saturdays and Sundays, 10am-5pm, as this is when we're busiest with the public. Also, every day of the week during a school holiday period is important, as visitor numbers jump up during these times.
There is some scope for helping us on weekdays when we have school groups present, though these times will be less busy.
Any time within those hours is suitable - you don't need to do a full day. The amount of time you can offer us is entirely up to you, and it need not be the same each week. All we ask is that you let us know in advance.
How to Apply
As with all of our volunteer roles, if you are interested in volunteering your time and playing a vital part in our museum, email us with your details, what role you'd like to apply for and what makes you ideal for this role.
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you ...
