National Trust for Scotland – Creative Producer, Pioneering Sprit Project




In 2020, the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) will embark on a large scale, multi-dimensional, land-based research project, unearthing the scale of the illicit whisky industry across Scotland. Delivered in partnership with Chivas (The Glenlivet), the project will combine archaeological and desk based research alongside community engagement/outreach, broadening our understanding of the illicit stills industry and exploring the human impact of the illicit trade on people and place.

Findings from the research phase will inform a series of creative outputs, spanning physical public engagement events, printed material, exhibitions, guided trails and broader, more ambitious creative responses.

NTS would like to appoint a suitably qualified Creative Producer to play a key role in delivering this exciting and innovative programme.

The Creative Producer will work cross organisation with key stakeholders, to project manage the programme, ensuring that all project deliverables and milestones are realised.

Additionally, the Creative Producer will lead on developing the creative output of the programme, commissioning artists, developing creative briefs, commissioning artists, and devising a diverse programme of creative responses to the findings in line with the project aims/ambitions. Cultivating cross divisional relationships and developing robust reporting/evaluation and communication processes are integral to this role as is the ability to work with external partners to ensure visibility and maximum promotion of the project and engagement activity.
