Join our team of friendly volunteers and be the public face of the Jewish Museum of Australia. Get a lot more out of your free time and help us to engage our visitors with Jewish culture and the Australian Jewish experience. The Jewish Museum recruits volunteers who are dedicated to learning and communicating, enhancing the visitor experience and who wish to support the Museum’s work.

The volunteering program at the Museum not only makes a valuable contribution to the Museum’s work, it also offers volunteers a wide range of benefits. By offering an interesting and stimulating environment, it enables volunteers to develop their knowledge and acquire skills. The Jewish Museum offers volunteering opportunities in the following areas:

Visitor Services – provide friendly and comprehensive information to visitors in person, phone and online.
Museum and Synagogue Guides - deliver high quality tours and information about the Jewish Museum’s exhibitions and tours of St Kilda Synagogue.
Education Guides and Facilitators - support the delivery of a variety of educational programs that provide a bridge between the Jewish Museum and schools.
Back of house - provide administrative support to staff behind the scenes including marketing, fundraising, website and database management.

We are currently looking for Education Guides.

All new volunteers are required to become Museum members and have a current Police Check and Working With Children check (if necessary).

If you are interested in volunteering, please phone the Volunteer Coordinator, Emma Cotsell on (03) 8534 3619 or email e.cotsell@jewishmuseum.com.au
