Get involved with volunteering and placement opportunities at The Box to meet people, learn something new and share your knowledge.

We’re inviting passionate and enthusiastic people from across Plymouth to join the friendly weekend volunteer team, welcoming our visitors and guiding them on their journey through The Box.

As Gallery Guides, you will be part of the newest and largest cultural venue in Plymouth helping visitors connect with our amazing connections and feeling safe while they immerse themselves in our spaces.

This engagement role will suit you if you love talking with people, have pride in Plymouth’s rich history or if you’re keen to get some fantastic visitor-facing experience!

Work Experience

We’re committed to the personal and professional development of Plymouth’s young people. We will be offering a range of work experience opportunities from 2021 onwards.

In the meantime, volunteering is a great way to gain industry-specific experience and explore your options prior to choosing a career path.
