A conservation charity is is offering people from across the Highlands and Inverness the opportunity to play a part in the future of Scotland’s heritage.
The National Trust for Scotland is launching a recruitment drive with over 300 positions at sites all over the country opening, many of which at sites across the Highlands, such as Culloden, Brodie Castle and Inverewe Garden.
The move comes to support the charity's new 10-year strategy, Nature, Beauty & Heritage for Everyone, which outlined ambitious plans for the years ahead – from becoming carbon negative through to speaking up for Scotland’s heritage that doesn’t have a voice and increasing visitor numbers to more than 6 million per year.
Clea Warner, general manager at National Trust for Scotland for the Highlands and Islands, said: “It’s an incredibly exciting time to join the Trust, particularly following the launch of Nature, Beauty & Heritage for Everyone and the big ambitions we have for the next ten years. With a range of vacancies at our Inverness and Highland properties, there is always something new to uncover and no two days are ever the same.
“With a wide range of opportunities available, there are so many different ways to play a part in sharing the stories of our rich heritage with visitors from all over the world, all while preserving it to ensure it’s there for future generations to discover.
“We are looking for people who are passionate about improving the lives of others through access to Scotland’s nature, beauty and heritage, and who want to get up and head to a job they love every day with a team who share their enthusiasm.”
With a range of jobs available across the region, the roles will contribute directly to the charity’s ambitious objectives across conservation, engagement and sustainability.
At Brodie Castle and Inverewe Garden, they are currently recruiting Visitor Services Assistants and Supervisors in Catering. Over at Culloden, there’s an opportunity to define Scotland’s heritage as a Public Affairs Co-ordinator, guiding conservation and visitor management practice on the battlefield where the Jacobite rising came to an end.
Film fans can seize the chance to feel like 007 in Glencoe where they are looking for a Ranger to tread the ground where the iconic shot of Bond looking across the Glencoe valley next to his classic Aston Martin DB5 was created for Skyfall. With Glencoe also widely known for its links to the Harry Potter films, fans of Harry, Ron and Hermione can walk in their magical footsteps as they take on roles including Estate Worker and Maintenance Manager.
