Work somewhere where a job is not just a ‘job’, where you can be part of a team with a passion for sharing Scotland’s heritage and making a real difference to local lives. Abbotsford, the home of Sir Walter Scott, is one of Scotland’s most important heritage sites and easily accessible from Edinburgh by road and rail. Now cared for by an independent charity, we are seeking an exceptional individual to manage and develop our award winning community work.

In this interesting and varied part time role you will be responsible for the Trust’s volunteering, educational, and mental health programming. Managing a team of two, you will call on the whole charity to support you in your work, integrating programmes into the fabric of the charity’s operations at every level. As a small charity run by staff and volunteers, you should be personable and flexible in your approach to others, and be prepared to be bitten by our passion for Scott and Abbotsford.
