We have created a new public body, Historic Environment Scotland. While we work on shaping our future we can reassure you that all services and products will continue as normal. Please follow our progress and find out more about our new organisation.
Flexible workingIn Historic Environment Scotland we feel that a work/life balance is essential and to help our staff we offer:
PensionOur new pension scheme offers a choice of valuable pension arrangements including Civil Service pension or stakeholder pension, giving the option to choose the pension that suits you best.
Training and development
Health & WelfareOur employee’s health and welfare are important to us. There are various services available;
Staff discountsThe following discounts are available to staff;
Season ticketsIf you need help to purchase an annual season ticket for travel between home and office, Historic Scotland may grant you an advance which must be recovered within the life of the season ticket. The scheme is open to all permanent/fixed term staff.
RelocationNew entrants normally have to pay their own relocation expenses when they are first appointed. Where, exceptionally, assistance is available, this will be stated in the recruitment memorandum/advert. To qualify you will have to satisfy Historic Environment Scotland that you have to move house to live within reasonable daily travelling distance of your new place of work and you must obtain Historic Environment Scotland’s permission before committing yourself to any expense. Historic Environment Scotland will make payment after you have started work and if you resign within 2 years, will ask you to agree to re-pay a proportion of the sum involved.
