National Museums Scotland is one of the leading museum groups in Europe. With one of the largest and most diverse collections in the world, we are responsible for the acquisition, preservation and display of a substantial part of Scotland’s cultural, historic and national heritage. 

Millions of local and international visitors enjoy our four museums each year, and we also introduce our collections to a much wider audience than can physically visit our museums through, touring exhibitions, loans, community engagement, digital programmes and research.

Over the last decade, we have invested over £120 million in our sites and have more than doubled our visitor numbers, with over 3 million people now visiting our four museums. Alongside this, we have continued to transform how we communicate and engage with our audiences. 2019 has seen the completion of our Masterplan for the National Museum of Scotland with the opening of three new galleries dedicated to Ancient Egypt, East Asia and the Art of Ceramics.

Working front of house you will meet and greet visitors and assist them so that they have a great visitor experience. You will also sell tickets and retail goods.

Previous experience of delivering high quality service to others is essential but just as important to us is your confident and visitor focused disposition. You will be moving around the museum a lot, sometimes working outside and in areas exposed to the elements.

There are currently two permanent seasonal positions available. The working hours for these positions are 25 hrs per week between April and October each year on a rota that includes weekends (10.40am to 4.20pm with 40-minute break). There may be the opportunity to work between November and March but this is not guaranteed.

Prospective candidates are asked to note that this post is based at our National Museum of Flight site at East Fortune, East Lothian.
