The Hockey Museum (THM) is looking for new volunteers.

It’s an exciting time to be a part of THM. As the only museum for hockey in the world, THM has grown rapidly driven by an ambitious and dedicated team of trustees and volunteers. There’s an authentic buzz around the activity that happens here, and you can get involved too.


What Can You Do For THM?

THM needs more volunteers to help us grow and achieve our ambitions.

Being a relatively new museum there is so much of the history of the sport just waiting to be tackled, whether it is a research project, collections work, or a project to share the wonderful stories and objects we’ve been able to bring together.

You can glean an appreciation of the range of collection and research areas from the "Artefacts & Archives" and "Research & Study Topics" sections of the website.

You can volunteer regularly or occasionally, or on a project-specific basis. It’s flexible; it all depends on how much time you want to give.

You can volunteer at THM’s home in Woking, Surrey, or you can undertake volunteering responsibilities remotely. You need not be a hockey person or a historian either. We’re confident we can find something to grab your interest.

You can discover the wide variety of volunteering opportunities available with THM through the Volunteer Roles document downloadable at the bottom of the page.

What Can THM Do For You?

We really value the dedication and time given by our volunteers. When you volunteer with THM, you will:

  • Have the option to embrace opportunities for training and improving your skills;
  • Be invited to our annual Volunteers’ Day and regular online Hockee Coffee meetings: discover what your colleagues are working on and have your say on THM’s plans;
  • Be invited to join our bi-annual away-day trips to other museums;
  • Have the opportunity to attend THM events and exhibition openings;
  • Be added to the THM Mailing List;
  • Have the opportunity for access to international hockey tournaments if, in your capacity as a THM volunteer, you are servicing the Museum's contribution therein; and
  • Receive and sign the Volunteer Handbook (formalising our commitment to you and yours to us, as well as being chock full of useful guidance).
