Get Involved/Volunteer/

It’s all going on at the MAC. Talks, tours and activities around the clock.

So, we’ll be looking for some enthusiastic volunteers – people of all ages to help us showcase all the MAC has to offer and deliver a first-rate visitor experience.

The Role of Volunteers

Volunteers at the MAC will be members of a progressive team. Working within this state of the art building you will have the opportunity to try something different, develop your skills and contribute to establishing the MAC as a leading edge venue for Belfast.

The MAC is looking for volunteers to get involved across all activities during daytime hours, evenings and weekends. The MAC volunteer shifts will be flexible to fit your lifestyle and availability.
