Working for VisitScotland


What's it like to work for us?


First of all we will make you feel welcome and new colleagues will go out of their way to help you settle in. You will receive a formal induction from HR and the training you require to get up and running.  


Everyone’s job is about making sure the world knows what a fantastic country we have in Scotland and how good a visit can be. You may be Visitor Services Adviser in our network of iCentres going the extra mile for your customers, a marketer devising new campaigns, working to bring the biggest and best events to Scotland or making sure our computers work every day – we understand that your role is vital to our success.


One of the single most important investments we make at VisitScotland is in our people and the career development opportunities for the team. We pride ourselves on having a robust framework for development which includes not just the leadership, soft skills and specialist programmes that you would expect from an employer of choice, but we also invest in mentoring programmes, professional qualifications, professional memberships, shadowing opportunities, external development opportunities, event outreach and the provision of online resources.


At VisitScotland we also have a well-established youth employment strategy that has recently achieved a gold standard “Good Practice Award” from the Investors in Young People. We are keen to develop a youth talent pipeline through investment in modern apprenticeships, graduate scheme positions, career ready mentoring of students, internships and work experience. We encourage staff to mentor, be mentored, spend time on development activities and participate in projects and programmes that provide stretch and variety.


If you see a vacancy which fires your imagination please apply, if there are no immediate vacancies you can register your interest and we will let you know when a position is available.
