Scottish Dolphin Centre Assistant (maternity cover)

Would you like to work in a beautiful location at a busy visitor centre? Are you organised and able to juggle tasks effectively? Do you have a flair for social media?

At Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) our vision is for a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free. WDC’s Scottish Dolphin Centre aims to engage and inspire our visitors with Scotland’s amazing bottlenose dolphins and with the conservation issues affecting them.

We are looking for an organised and enthusiastic Assistant to provide additional support to the Scottish Dolphin Centre office team during a maternity cover.

You will support the SDC Visitor manager and Trading manager in administrative tasks and in the management of the Centre’s social media platforms. You will provide additional front of house support to ensure all visitors get a fantastic experience. Daily tasks will include answering enquiries, scheduling social media posts and campaigns, assisting with cash handling and stock control.

The ability to thrive and stay calm in a busy office environment where priorities change quickly is essential.

Travel to do banking and other tasks means that the post holder must be able to drive and have their own transport.
