Volunteer position for the technical service

Volunteer handyman or handywoman

Are you very good with your hands, would you like to make a valuable contribution to the preHistorisch Dorp and are you available at least one morning and/or afternoon every week? The preHistorisch Dorp has special vacancies for volunteers who would like to work outside together with other people. 

The preHistorisch Dorp is the most child-friendly museum in the Dutch province of North Brabant. An open-air museum where all visitors, young and old, are actively discovering what everyday life used to be like in the past. We keep our historical buildings and activities in tiptop shape and safe for visitors throughout the season. A large part of this work is performed by a regular group of volunteers. 

As a volunteer with our technical service, you will work together with other passionate volunteers who maintain our open-air museum indoors and outdoors. You will take on a variety of tasks, from small repair work up to the development of new materials, to contribute to the preHistorisch Dorp’s ambience. You confer with the team leader of the technical service to determine your activities.
