Abbotsford: Digital Marketing Officer

We are looking for an enthusiastic and creative individual who can promote Abbotsford to a global audience.

Abbotsford, the home of Sir Walter Scott in the Scottish Borders, is one of Scotland's most important heritage sites, and is now seeking an enthusiastic and creative Digital Marketing Officer to help grow our visitor numbers and achieve our bold plans for the future.

In 2014 the Abbotsford Trust completed a £12 million restoration, followed in 2018 by extensive estate improvements, ongoing funded community development activity, and £3 million raised so far towards an Endowment Fund. The Trust is now pursuing a 10 Year Plan - an ambitious vision for Abbotsford through to 2029 encompassing the 250th anniversary of Scott's birth in 2021.

As Digital Marketing Officer you will be essential to Abbotsford's future success, responsible for engaging a UK and international audience, growing our online presence and digital services, and ultimately attracting more visitors to Scott's unique home.

In this diverse and exciting role, you will be a key member of the marketing team, reporting to the Marketing & Communications Manager. You will be looking after all of Abbotsford's digital channels, providing exposure for news and events, and promoting the activities of colleagues who work in the historic house, gardens and estate, gift shop, café and self-catering accommodation.

Full time, £17,417 - £19,201 per annum

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 17 June 2019.
