Organisation: The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

Salary: £23,995 (pro-rata) plus generous holiday entitlement

Location: Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, 20a Inverleith Row, Edinburgh, EH3 5LR

The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE) is a 5-star visitor attraction in the heart of Edinburgh and one of the world’s leading botanic gardens. Together with three regional gardens, Dawyck, Logan and Benmore, its mission is to ‘Explore, conserve and explain plants for a better future’. All profits raised through its retail operations support the important research work of the garden.

We now have an exciting opportunity for an E-Commerce Supervisor to join the team based at our Edinburgh site to cover maternity leave for a six-month period but there may be scope for this to be extended further. You will work closely with our retail management team to oversee the day to day running of the online shop and ongoing development of the e-commerce site, including developing merchandise categories and product launches as well as the planning and development of seasonal content and offers.

You will also develop social media content in conjunction with RBGE’s Social Media Manager in order to promote products, e-commerce and the physical RBGE shops.

You should have organisational skills, have experience of working in an e-commerce administrative role as well as a knowledge and understanding of e-commerce platforms. You should be confident and have an outgoing personality and the ability to work with both the retail team, external suppliers and staff across the organisation to deliver objectives is essential.

We’re happy to be very flexible around weekly working schedules to enable as wide a range of candidates to apply as possible.

To apply please email with:
• your CV
• a covering letter outlining the skills, knowledge and experience you’d bring to the post
• a completed equal opportunities questionnaire available on our website
