Pen Museum Logo


Our Museum is always happy to recruit additional volunteers to our team. Why not gain new skills and use your time and talents to help us create great experiences for our visitors?

Do you enjoy talking to people and sharing a passion for Birmingham’s social and industrial history?

We have a number of roles and opportunities including archives, collections, tour guiding, front of house, gift shop and marketing.

No prior experience required, however, we look for friendly, approachable individuals with an interest in heritage*

Get in touch we would love to meet you.
