We now have enough expressions of interest for this challenge and it is now closed. Thanks to everyone who accepted this challenge, we will contact you all next in July and you will be asked to complete a survey.
This online role requires 3 hours of your time each month at your own pace, and it is over a 12 month period starting 1st August 2020.
Royal Armouries is embarking on a major redevelopment of our digital offering – and we need your help. We want our online presence to become our fourth destination, alongside our Leeds museum, Fort Nelson and the White Tower at the Tower of London. We are going to do this by:
- creating new, high quality content which is engaging and accessible to our audiences
- creating a seamless experience for our online visitors
- building relationships with our online visitors, understanding what they like and what they want from a museum online
The experience of lockdown and the focus on digital content has made this project even more important to us.
We would like volunteers to test some of our exciting ideas and concepts for digital content before we roll them out publicly. Feedback will shape our digital strategy and make it work better for all our audiences. We are seeking volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds with varying levels of interest in the Royal Armouries – no prior interest in arms and armour needed!
We will need 3 hours per month of your time over a 12 month period. All volunteering will take place online, at your own pace. There is no cost to this volunteering opportunity. This volunteer opportunity is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of the development of the Royal Armouries’ digital vision for the future.
We encourage participation from volunteers from all backgrounds, particularly those who self-identify as BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) and people with disabilities.
Why get involved?
- Play a role in shaping the strategy of a national museum
- Gain experience and develop skills in digital and online development
- Help make our world-class collection of arms and armour more accessible and engaging to wider audiences
