Volunteer Recruitment

Volunteers are the backbone of the Open House model. Without your generous support, our programs simply could not run. The public’s primary interaction with Open House is you! Your passion and enthusiasm for the program ensure a successful day for all.

Open House Volunteers are vital for ensuring visitors have the best possible experience by providing building access, tour guidance and answering questions.

Building Volunteers: are assigned to a particular building for their shift and will mostly carry out tasks such as queue management, ticket scanning and assisting Open House Melbourne patrons.

Roving Volunteers: are NOT assigned to a particular building but can deployed to buildings within their precinct where necessary and will have the same tasks as Building Volunteers.

Info Hub Volunteers: will be based at the Info Hub in the City of Melbourne Precinct and will assist Open House Melbourne patrons by providing detailed information about Open House Melbourne programs and precincts.
