Volunteering opportunities are very much dependent on the needs of Royal Collection Trust, but in the past we have offered volunteering opportunities in the Royal Library, the Royal Photograph Collection, Pictures and Collections Management. All volunteering opportunities are advertised on the British Monarchy website: current vacancies.
The work will vary for each volunteer, depending on the area. You can expect to be involved in a specific project and will receive guidance and support, so that you can make a meaningful contribution to Royal Collection Trust.
There are no set selection criteria, however we would expect our volunteers to demonstrate an interest in their chosen field. Training will be provided.
As a volunteer, you are not obliged to commit to a set period of time or number of days. We would prefer you to devote a meaningful amount of time to a particular project in order to benefit fully from the opportunity.
This will depend on the specific field you are working in. We have offered volunteering opportunities at St James’s Palace, Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
Royal Collection Trust will provide lunch and will reimburse reasonable travel expenses (on presentation of proof of purchase).
