Steward - HES/23/334 Rothesay Castle and Newark Castle

Organisation: Historic Environment Scotland

Salary: £21,452 - £22,272 pro rata, per annum

Location: Glasgow and Strathclyde

Your role of Steward at Historic Environment Scotland will be a part year permanent position, running from Easter until the end of September each year. The likely start date for this role is in March 2024.

Are you looking for a flexible seasonal job that is both fun and unique? You’ll get a unique view into Scotland’s rich history and gain valuable experience in the tourism industry and help bring Scotland’s dramatic history to life for our visitors from across the world. Explore the fascinating stories from Scotland’s past and share your passion with international and local visitors who come to Bute and Port Glasgow through the season.

You will have the opportunity to work at:

Rothesay Castle: unique among Scottish castles for both its early date and unusual circular plan. It’s also famous for its close links with the Stewarts – both while they were hereditary high stewards and, from 1371, a royal dynasty. To this day, the heir to the throne still has the title Duke of Rothesay.

Newark Castle: Newark Castle was for a long time hidden behind the giant cranes and sheds of the Clyde’s great shipyards. Only recently has it re-emerged to take its rightful place in the townscape of Port Glasgow.

Glasgow & Strathclyde is a vibrant area of Scotland, encompassing 21 sites from Dunbartonshire to Ayrshire, including Glasgow and Lanarkshire. Our team works across a wide range of sites including castles, cathedrals, and gasworks. As a steward, you are key to enhancing the experience of our visitors by engaging with them about all aspects of our unique sites.

Application Deadline: Sunday 14/01/2024
