Our new vibrant and exciting railway and shipping museum is due to open on 15th April 2018 at Harwich Town railway station. The museum comes under the umbrella of the Mayflower Heritage Centre ( formerly the Harwich Mayflower Project)

We are looking for volunteers to assist and guide visitors around our museum. We also have several roles for catering assistants in the small café attached to the museum which will involve serving light refreshments.

The museum will be open every Saturday from 10am-4pm. We have several volunteer positions available with flexible hours.


We are not looking for volunteers with formal skills just enthusiasm and a sunny disposition! For the catering positions some experience of a similar role or a current food hygiene certificate would be welcome but not essential.

If you are interested in history or railways or just enjoy meeting people these roles could be for you.


For more information, please contact us or complete the Volunteer Application form attached.
