The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh explores, conserves, and explains the world of plants for a better future.

We are a world leading botanical institute and international visitor attraction taking positive action for plants and people; from local communities across Scotland, to more than 40 countries around the world. Our priority is to tackle the biodiversity crisis and the climate emergency and support the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. Our work builds on our more than 350-year history as a scientific botanic garden, a centre of biodiversity education and training, the internationally important botanical collections in our care, and our extensive international partnerships.

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Educationalist to join our team and lead the development and growth of our undergraduate programme of world-leading horticulture and plant biodiversity-related courses. As well as co-ordinating and teaching on the courses, you’ll be managing a team of lecturers, managing the day-to-day relationships with our academic partners, and constantly looking to further enhance the experience of our students.

On top of being an experienced teacher with a good knowledge of botany and horticulture, applicants will need to have previous management experience and an understanding of the HE sector. This is a key role within a fast-paced environment, and you’ll need to be a strong communicator, able to think on your feet, and play a positive leadership role in an experienced dynamic team.

Although we see this as a full-time role, applications will also be considered from exceptional candidates looking to work on a part-time basis.
