The Abbotsford Trust

Visitor Services Manager

Application Deadline: Monday 11th February 2019
We need your help to delight our visitors every day, helping us grow our income through retail, admissions and self catering.

Abbotsford, the home of Sir Walter Scott in the Scottish Borders, is one of Scotland’s most important heritage sites. Following completion of a multi-million £ redevelopment, and now with easy access from Edinburgh along the new Borders Railway, we are focussing on developing our trading performance. As we prepare for the 250th anniversary of Scott’s birth in 2021, this is an exciting time to join Abbotsford as a member of the management team.

Do you have fantastic team leadership skills and experience of working to targets in a busy customer environment? We are particularly interested in hearing from people with a retail or visitor attraction background who excel at leading people, realising commercial potential, and thrive on variety. As a small independent charity operated by staff and volunteers, a positive approach to team working and problem solving is a must.

Full time £24,497 - £27,282 per annum
