NTS on recruitment drive for Angus properties

Scotland’s leading conservation charity is offering people from across Angus and the wider retion the opportunity to play a part in the future of Scotland’s heritage.

By joining Scotland’s leading conservation charity at one of two trust sites in the county, people can make the most of the health and well-being benefits of working in Scotland’s beautiful nature, while telling the stories of Scotland’s history and preserving important sites, such as Barrie’s Birthplace, in Kirriemuir, and House of Dun, near Montrose for generations to come.

Last month, NTS launched its new 10-year strategy, ‘Nature, Beauty & Heritage for Everyone’, which outlined ambitious plans for the years ahead – from becoming carbon negative through to increasing visitor numbers to more than 6 million per year.

To support its ambitions, the charity is now recruiting for 300 roles across the country.

In the Angus and Dundee areas, the trust is recruiting for a variety of roles, which will contribute directly to the charity’s ambitious objectives across conservation, engagement and sustainability.

House of Dun, for instance, is recruiting for visitor services assistants in catering, combining the buzz of people while serving up some delicious food.

Or, if being outdoors is more appealing, there is a number of gardener roles across a number sites which will allow workers to combine a passion for nature with a desire to make a difference.

Ian Hawkins, North East Region general manager, said: “It’s an incredibly exciting time to join the Trust, particularly following the launch of ‘Nature, Beauty & Heritage for Everyone’. With a range of vacancies at our properties, there is always something new to uncover and no two days are ever the same.

“We are looking for people who are passionate about improving the lives of others through access to Scotland’s nature, beauty and heritage, and who want to get up and head to a job they love every day with a team who share their enthusiasm.”
