Volunteer With Us

There are lots of opportunities to get involved with National Glass Centre and help us to continue inspiring people to learn about, create and enjoy contemporary glass.

Volunteering at National Glass Centre

National Glass Centre values the vital contribution that volunteers make in achieving our organisational aims. Volunteering with us is an invaluable way of engaging with the visual arts, learning more about glass making techniques and preserving the legacy of Sunderland’s rich glassmaking heritage. We are always on the lookout for enthusiastic people to join our growing volunteer programme.
National Glass Centre’s Volunteer Programme is very flexible as we appreciate the time that volunteers give to us, whether long or short term. Volunteering with us can offer you the opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills, increase your confidence, keep busy, improve your CV, have fun and benefit from a number of special events, training and discounts.

If you would like to get involved with the work of National Glass Centre, browse our Current Opportunities below or, if you feel you have something to offer that’s not listed, please get in touch for an informal chat with one of our team.
