We are looking for an enthusiastic and qualified driver (HGV or PSV) and exhibition guide to join the Travelling Gallery team.

Travelling Gallery is a contemporary art gallery in a bus. Since 1978 it has been taking its exhibitions into communities throughout Scotland.

The post holder will be required to drive a 12m long Scania Omni Dekka vehicle throughout Scotland and give presentations on the exhibition to school groups, students and members of the public at a variety venues.

Considerable driving experience is required along with excellent communication skills, experience of working with the public, an interest in art, and the ability to work within a small and dedicated team.

The position will involve travelling throughout Scotland (including the Islands, Highlands, Borders and everywhere in between). Applicants must be prepared to spend regular periods of time away for which travel and expenses will be paid.

This post is temporary until 15 December 2017 with the possibility of permanent employment for future tours.

Preferred candidates will be required to join the PVG Scheme or undergo a PVG Scheme update check prior to a formal offer of employment being made by the City of Edinburgh Council.

This post is funded by Creative Scotland.
