Job Description

After 7 years of brilliant service our current Head of Marketing is about to sail off round the world to fulfil her long held dream, and we are recruiting for what must be one of the best and most rewarding jobs in Scottish tourism – marketing Scotland’s best visitor attraction, an accolade we have held for the last 12 years running, and one of TripAdvisor’s Top 5 UK Attractions, an award we have also won. In a momentous year for The Royal Yacht Britannia, following on from our most successful year ever, 2018 marks 20 years since The Queen’s former floating palace arrived in Edinburgh and opened to the public, as an award-winning visitor attraction and exclusive evening events venue.

 

“You don’t have to be crazy to work here, but it helps”, may seem an unusual sales pitch for such an important job, but amazing creativity and an unbridled passion for daring to try what others won’t have the confidence to propose, never mind do, is an essential characteristic you must have to succeed in this role.

 

However, it’s not all fun and games, you must also have an astute business brain and the commercial flair required to help us attract; circa 400,000 visitors per annum, and approximately 100 high profile evening events. Also joining our ‘fleet’ soon, is our new 23 bedroom luxury static floating hotel FINGAL, and you will also oversee the promotion of day charters on our classic Royal Sailing Yacht BLOODHOUND, and forthcoming lunch and dinner cruises on the former River Thames State Barge: ROYAL NORE. Exciting times ahead, not a role for the fainthearted, or those looking for an easy life, it is a very demanding and challenging role, in a highly competitive marketplace.

You will therefore be a graduate with considerable experience in; leading, managing and coaching multi-disciplinary teams in high quality businesses, and ideally have a post graduate or professional qualification, in a relevant marketing or business discipline.
