Have you always wanted to call the top of a mountain your office? If you long to wake up and go to work in a place where you can be inspired by the incredible nature, beauty and heritage of Scotland, here at the National Trust for Scotland – you can!

As Scotland’s largest and leading independent conservation charity, our team are here to make a difference to what makes Scotland so special. From coastlines to castles, art to architecture, and wildlife to wilderness, it’s our people who help preserve, protect, and promote these beautiful and historic places.

We spend so much time at work, why not do something that’s important to you and matters to others! With roles to suit every passion and interest at a range of sites across each region in Scotland, there’s no such thing as a boring job with the Trust. Whatever the role, no two days are the same and that’s one of the things we love most.

As we embark on our ambitious 10-year strategy, we’re looking for colleagues to join us in a wide range of roles that will contribute directly to conservation, engagement and sustainability and help us reach our objectives. Whether you’re a people person, a foodie, a lover of the outdoors, a historian, or all of the above, there’s a role for you at the Trust.
