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. An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Farm Hand at The National Museum of Rural Life in East Kilbride, G76 9HR.

The museum offers an exciting program of events and with each season there is always something new for our visitors to see at the working farm. You must have an agricultural background with direct practical experience of a working farm and handling livestock. A full driving license and the ability to drive agricultural machinery is essential.

It is important to us that you have a confident, friendly and visitor focused disposition. You’ll need to be physically fit as you’ll be on your feet a lot and working outside the majority of the time in areas exposed to the elements.

Due to the nature of this post a degree of flexibility in working patterns is required.

Working rolling rota pattern likely to follow:
Week 1 - all day Tuesday, Wednesday am, all day Saturday & Sunday.
Week 2 - all day Tuesday & Wednesday am
Spring lambing time – 5 days for 4 weeks
