National Museums Scotland is one of the leading museum groups in Europe. With one of the largest and most diverse collections in the world, we are responsible for the acquisition, preservation and display of a substantial part of Scotland’s cultural, historic and national heritage.

Millions of local and international visitors enjoy our four museums each year, and we also introduce our collections to a much wider audience than can physically visit our museums through, touring exhibitions, loans, community engagement, digital programmes and research.

Over the last decade, we have invested over £120 million in our sites and have more than doubled our visitor numbers, with over 3 million people now visiting our four museums. Alongside this, we have continued to transform how we communicate and engage with our audiences. 2019 has seen the completion of our Masterplan for the National Museum of Scotland with the opening of three new galleries dedicated to Ancient Egypt, East Asia and the Art of Ceramics.

National Museums Scotland is seeking an experienced and talented Digital Content Manager to lead our ambitious programme of online content development and communications.

Working within our award-winning Digital Media department, the Content Manager will lead  a dedicated team to plan and coordinate an ongoing programme of content across online channels – from social media accounts and multimedia outputs to long-form stories around our collections and activities.

With a creative outlook, a passion for storytelling and exceptional project management skills, the successful candidate will have an excellent track record of producing a wide-range of engaging content for online publication/access and managing high-profile online platforms.

The Digital Content Manager will combine excellent communication and advocacy skills with  a strategic outlook to seek out and tell captivating stories from across our museums with the aim to increase museum visits, drive online engagement and grow our digital audiences.

Adept at establishing partnerships to amplify reach or engage new audiences, they will collaborate with teams across the whole organisation as well as training key staff members in digital communication skills where required.
