Job Summary

This is an exciting opportunity for an individual who thrives on creating audience-focused and engaging marketing and communications content. The ideal candidate will be creative, highly organised and keen to play a key role in a major capital project to deliver a suite of new spaces for the National Galleries of Scotland’s renowned collection of Scottish art.

The Scottish National Gallery Project is transforming the way Scottish art will be shown in our galleries and experienced by our visitors. New exhibition spaces directly accessible from Princes Street Gardens will provide a light-filled new home for the Galleries’ unrivalled collection of Scottish art, raising its profile for visitors from all over the world.

The first phase of the Scottish National Gallery Project was completed in 2019. This included a new entrance area in East Princes Street Gardens, a new café, refurbished restaurant and shop, an extensive sandstone terrace, and new landscaping and paths to improve access to the gardens and the Galleries. Work is now focused on delivering the stunning new gallery spaces where the artwork will be displayed.

This role will play a key part in helping devise and deliver on the marketing and communications plans for the project as it moves toward completion. Work will include media relations, creating social media content and marketing collateral, assisting with a wayfinding strategy for the new galleries and devising internal communications approaches and content. The post holder will also provide rota cover for the NGS press office, responding to enquires and arranging visits for media across all NGS sites.
