We encourage anyone to apply for any position we have available that you feel qualified for. We currently offer the below opportunities to work with us.


Our volunteers are an integral part of the museum’s team. Working both directly with our stakeholders and behind the scenes, our passionate and skilled volunteers help contribute to the story of firefighting history in Australia.

Our current volunteers assist with a number of functions at the museum, from the repair and maintenance of our significant heritage fleet, assisting with digitising our important archives and documents, to general operations and maintenance of the museum grounds.

If you are interested in using your skills to feed your mind, expand your personal horizons and connect with your community, please consider volunteering at the Museum of Fire by downloading and completing an application form. Completed application forms or enquiries can be directed to mail@museumoffire.com.au. Please see our contact us page for further details.


We recognise the importance of internships and enabling tertiary students to gain valuable workplace experience to develop industry-specific abilities in a chosen area.

The museum values the contribution that interns make to our work and are committed to providing opportunities for students to develop personally and professionally.

Interns are placed within the museum to work on structured projects under the supervision of our staff. Participation in the Museum of Fire internship program requires that students are currently enrolled in a relevant course at a recognised Australian tertiary education institution and that the student’s insurance be covered by their educational institution. Internships run for 20-30 days, depending on the needs of the project and those of the student’s educational institution.

Please note that Museum of Fire internships are unpaid.
