Volunteer Coordinator p/t

Work somewhere where a job is not just a ‘job’, where you can be part of a team with a passion for sharing Scotland’s heritage and making a real difference to local lives. Abbotsford, the home of Sir Walter Scott, is one of Scotland’s most important heritage sites and easily accessible from Edinburgh by road and rail. Now cared for by an independent charity, we are seeking an exceptional individual to coordinate our award winning volunteer programme.

In this interesting and varied part time role you will be responsible for administering and supporting volunteering; recruiting, training and supporting volunteers across the organisation, from the historic house and visitor centre to the garden and estate. 

You will also work with colleagues to develop new initiatives to engage under-represented audiences, and will ensure that all our volunteers have a positive and fulfilling experience.

As a small charity run by staff and volunteers, you should be personable and flexible in your approach to others, and be prepared to be bitten by our passion for Scott and Abbotsford.

Part time at 14 hours a week, salary of £8,936 - £9,331 per annum (£22,340-23,328 pro rata full time), dependent on experience. To be worked as a job share over 2 or 3 days a week, including Thu & Fri.
