Current vacancies

Visitor Experience & Exhibitions Officer

  • Full time
  • £20,000
  • Tobermory, Isle of Mull
  • Closing 10th August 2020

Funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund this role forms part of the new ‘Gateway to the Trail’ project, which follows on from the successful launch of the Hebridean Whale Trail in 2019.

The role is a unique position within the charity, pivotal to the expansion and improvement of the current visitor offer through overseeing the development of new media exhibits and refreshing the existing space. Informing others about the centre and it’s activities is key to the role so we are seeking an enthusiastic self-motivator, familiar with event promotion, experienced in public engagement, with outstanding communication skills.

We are looking for somebody with a passion for visitor experience and a desire to make our centre the best it can be. Our ideal candidate will have the ability to ensure projects are delivered on time and within budget while being able to provide a consistent and friendly welcome to the centre on a day to day basis. Understanding the needs of volunteers, as well as being able to work with the wider team of staff and trustees, to deliver project outcomes with the vision of the trust is central to all tasks. A genuine interest in cetaceans and marine conservation is essential and an understanding of the workings of a charity/NGO would be an advantage.
