Volunteering with Archives

Hull University Archives (HUA) is here to help students develop their skills and gain new experience during their time at university. As part of this work, we may be able to offer student volunteering opportunities at Hull History Centre.

Work at HUA is varied and often involves cataloguing of archival collections, selection and digitization of material, and research using original sources.

From time to time, opportunities arise for volunteers to get involved in this work. Getting involved allows you to develop employability skills, an understanding of the heritage sector in practice, a chance to work with unique archival resources, and a wider student experience during your time at university.

You can see how some of our previous volunteers have got on by visiting the 'volunteers case studies' section of the History Centre website. 

Apply to be a Volunteer

If any students are interested in such opportunities, further information and advice on how to apply can be found on the 'Volunteers UoH Students' section of the History Centre website.

Please note that HUA are a small team and may not always be able to accommodate volunteers. However, application forms will be kept and applicants may be contacted as and when defined volunteer positions become available.
