The Royal Highland Show

Vacancy – RHS Livestock & Competitions Department

The Livestock and Competitions Department at the Royal Highland Show is looking to recruit a further team member for this year’s Show, so if you know your gimmers from your geldings or your heifers from your hamburgs, then this could be for you. We need someone to join the core team to input entries alongside other administrative tasks, so a computer savvy person who is accurate and efficient is a must. An ability to work hard as part of a close knit team and a good telephone manner are essentials. This post will run until the week after the Show.

To apply please e-mail livestock@rhass.org.uk with your CV and a short note marketing yourself to us.

Lantra’s Rural and Urban Secondary Schools Awards

RHASS is delighted to have sponsored Lantra’s Rural and Urban Secondary Schools Awards, introduced in recognition of schools which demonstrate exceptional standards in rural skills training. The 2015 award was presented to Breadalbane Academy and Eyemouth High School respectively. Breadalbane Academy, in Aberfeldy, built an innovative ‘community garden’ which caught the eye of the judges, while Eyemouth High School has developed a series of outdoor areas for teaching horticulture and estate management courses.

RHASS is committed to connecting Scotland’s young people with food producers and this award recognises schools who share this ambition.
