An exciting opportunity has arisen for an education officer to scope, develop and deliver our new education programme at Bolton Abbey. We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced individual who can work under their own initiative.

Bolton Abbey, the Yorkshire Estate of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, welcomes over 400,000 visitors each year. With your help, our new education programme will focus on the varied and beautiful countryside on the estate including the historic ruins of Bolton Priory.

This interesting and varied role would suit a highly motivated individual with excellent organisational skills and a background in education, who can promote the educational offering of the estate, deal with enquiries, coordinate feedback and oversee the programme of educational events and projects. It is essential that you are a confident deliverer, have experience of working with a range of ages, and a proficiency in Microsoft Office and Outlook.
