You will manage the National Museum of Rural Life in line with the priorities of National Museums Scotland to deliver a modern, safe, attractive and dynamic visitor attraction.

Your day-to-day management of the museum will include accountability for our working farm. You will also co-ordinate cross-National Museums Scotland teams to organise a variety of public events and market the museum to our various audiences. Going forward our strategic focus is to grow our annual visitor numbers whilst maintaining our high levels of visitor satisfaction and increasing our commercial income.

Educated to degree level, or equivalent, you will have proven experience of managing a visitor attraction or a similar customer focused operation where you have demonstrated strong leadership skills and commercial awareness. It is vital that you have demonstrable experience of managing projects and budgets as well as an extremely strong customer and safety focus in all that you do.

While not essential, agricultural or livestock management experience would be of benefit.
