Going to work is something special when your office is a royal palace, a medieval abbey or a prehistoric ruin. Even more so, because you’ll use your skills to protect and promote our unique heritage – a big part of what makes Scotland what it is.

We offer a competitive salary and a range of great benefits – as well as more than 400 unique work environments, 77 of which are staffed year-round. Find out more about working with us and search for current vacancies.

We advertise all vacancies on our website, including apprenticeships – which we offer in most trades – and vacancies for stewards at our properties (including seasonal stewards). We also place adverts in Jobcentres, local and national newspapers, and specialist publications.

For most roles, applicants must have a minimum level of qualification and experience – typically passes at Standard Grade/GCSE/O Level. Equivalent qualifications may be acceptable.

You will also need to meet our basic eligibility criteria and health checks and provide satisfactory references.

The recruitment process usually takes 3 to 5 months, but this varies by post and location.
