Position at Newhailes

From: Isobel Griffin <igriffin>

House Steward (Ref HS/SM)

Newhailes is an enchanting 18th century house and designed landscape
of rare quality and atmosphere on the outskirts of Edinburgh.  As
well as offering rich evidence of period decorative arts, Newhailes
was very characteristic of the Scottish Enlightenment, being home to
one of its leading figures and host to many famous figures of the
time.  Opening to the public in 2002, Newhailes will provide
visitors with a thrill of discovery and awaken their senses and
emotions.  The Trust now seeks to augment the small team dedicated
to the conservation of the House, its interiors and contents and the
Estate and Gardens and to the presentation and interpretation of the
whole property to visitors.

House Steward (Ref HS/SM): While primarily responsible for
developing and implementing a House and Collections Care Programme
and for the security of the house and its contents, you will also
provide back-up administrative support to the Property Manager and
participate in the programme of guided tours. With a relevant degree
and practical experience of caring for historic interiors and
collections, you will be passionate about preventive conservation
and will be able to enthuse and train others.  Accommodation
