Location: Glenmorangie Distillery, Tain, Ross-shire, IV19 1PZ
Closing: Sunday 8 March 2020

The Glenmorangie distillery exists alongside the special conservation area on the Dornoch Firth and is committed to improving the site as part of their sustainable future - we are excited to be partners with Glenmorangie and Heriot-Watt University in the ground-breaking Dornoch Environmental Enhancement Project (DEEP).

We now have an exciting opportunity for an outgoing, target-driven person to share their passion for marine conservation and become the ambassador for MCS based at the Glenmorangie distillery in Tain, Ross-shire.   

Confident speaking with groups, you will deliver talks and presentations to raise awareness of the Dornoch Firth marine environment and the valuable partnership between MCS and Glenmorangie to visitors at the distillery.  Away from the distillery, you will also work to engage the local community in events and activities which promote the partnership’s initiatives and encourage community interest and attendance at our Beachwatch events in September. 

You will be able to demonstrate experience (or the skills required) for recruiting new members for MCS, ideally in a face-to-face capacity or in a sales environment.  The role will involve some travel in the beautiful and rural area of Tain – public transport links to some locations are difficult so the use of a car is required.  This role will also require you to work flexibly, including attending some evening and weekend events.
