Endeavour: Exhibitions and Design Records Management Volunteer
The Exhibitions & Design Department at Royal Museums Greenwich is seeking enthusiastic and committed volunteers to support the administration of the Endeavour project.

It is a particularly exciting time to join us as we work on the Endeavour project, with four new world class galleries opening in late 2018. More information about the Endeavour galleries can be found on our website: http://www.rmg.co.uk/work-services/what-we-do/exploration-wing
