Volunteers needed to tame dinosaurs in Lincoln

Have you got what it takes to tame a dinosaur? The Collection Museum is looking for local volunteers to help visitors have a great time.

As previously reported, the dinosaur encounter from London’s Natural History Museum is heading to the city for the first time.

There will be impressive dinosaur models and animatronics and fossil replicas. The exhibition also features an animatronic model three quarters the size of a life-size T-Rex.

Now the museum is looking for enthusiastic people to help with the exhibition from Saturday, July 13 to September 8.

Paul Mason, visitor experience manager, said: “Whether you’re 16 and just starting out, looking to gain experience in the heritage sector, or just wanting to try something new – you may very well be able to help us.

“As an exhibition volunteer you are likely to be the first person many of our visitors will encounter, so we are looking for volunteers who are positive, have a sense of fun and want to help make their day as special as possible.

“The role will include greeting visitors to the exhibition in a warm and friendly manner, orientating them around the site and answering general enquiries. You’ll also monitor and control visitor numbers in the gallery space.

“So if you’re a friendly and enthusiastic person and would like to be a part of our fantastic team, please get in touch.”

It is promised to be an ideal role for someone with excellent communication skills and an interest in developing knowledge if the day-to-day running of a public museum.
