Jobs & Volunteering

Would you like to volunteer at D-Day Story?

The D-Day Story is the only attraction in Britain dedicated to the D-Day landings of 6 June 1944. Using the experiences of the people who took part, and the museum’s iconic collections, we bring the event to life for this and future generations.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with The D-Day Story. We need your help to volunteer to tell the story of Landing Craft 7074, a D-Day hero, as Navigators. We also would like to hear from Volunteer Embroidery Explainers – Demonstrator. If you are an embroiderer and keen to share your love of stitching with others this could be the role for you.

D-Day 75 volunteers

Portsmouth, where much of the landing force sailed from in 1944, will be the focal point of the UK commemorations. We will also host the UK national event on 5 June.

Portsmouth City Council is planning a series of events over five days to reflect the area’s unique role in one of the largest and well known military operations ever.

D-Day 75 volunteers will be our local ambassadors of Portsmouth. They will inspire visitors to the city, providing up to date information as the events take place and guiding the public to the events along the seafront.

Each and every volunteer is proud and passionate about their city, giving visitors a warm welcome and assistance to enjoy the event to maximum effect.

We have the following roles available:

We are seeking volunteers on the 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 June, with four hour slots: 8am – 12pm, 12pm – 4pm and 4pm – 8pm.

To apply, please download and complete the D-Day 75 Volunteer Application Form and return it to Laura Weston via VolunteerDDay75@portsmouthcc.gov.uk by 23 May 2019.

Bring the kids!
