The Red House Group welcomes volunteers to assist with the operation of Gallery M. The Group is a registered organisation for Voluntary Work Approval with Centrelink. Gallery M is staffed by a small dedicated team of paid employees, supported by volunteers who assist with a wide range of tasks.
Volunteer work is available to people who have an interest in the visual arts, and / or experience in retail sales and administrative work. Volunteers assist the paid staff as required, but all cash transactions and sales are done by the paid staff.
Jobs for volunteers include general administrative tasks such as filing, keeping track of visitors and maintaining a tidy work space, mail related duties such as filling envelopes, customer service when required, and assisting Gallery M staff.
In addition, in conjunction with the exhibition program, volunteers may be able to assist with the set-up of exhibitions, receiving and documentation of artwork, and packing sold items at the conclusion of an exhibition. Some light cleaning, such as dusting or sweeping, and washing of dishes may also be undertaken.
A volunteer roster diary enables volunteers to choose times that suit them, without the obligation of a regular recurring shift. Weekdays and Saturdays offer two shifts: 10am-1pm & 1-4pm. Sunday hours are 1-4pm.
Some limitations exist for persons wishing to volunteer to meet Centrelink or other return to work obligations. Please discuss your personal situation with the Gallery M Manager.
