Job Opportunity: Learning & Admin Assistant

by | Nov 29, 2023 | News, Opportunities

The Scottish Jewish Heritage Centre (SJHC) is looking for a part-time Learning & Admin Assistant to join our team!

The Learning & Admin Assistant will work directly with schools, delivering school visits and liaising with schools to plan and organise their trips. The role also involves working with our volunteers to ensure support for the school visits and public tours, answering enquiries and some general administration.

The SJHC provides much-needed facilities to learn about Scotland’s Jewish heritage, including Judaism, the Holocaust-era and the historic migration of Jews to Scotland. It is based in Glasgow city centre, in Scotland’s oldest purpose-built Synagogue. The SJHC also showcases the architecture and history of Garnethill Synagogue, a stunning Category A listed building, opened in 1879.

The SJHC’s school visit service has been steadily growing since our launch. In our first year 2021-22 we had visits from over 500 pupils, aged 7 to 14. For the academic year 2022-23 we were visited by over 1000 young people from 13 of 32 local authority areas in Scotland. For more information about what we offer on the school visit service:

In the last year, around 700 visitors from around the world have visited on our volunteer-led public tours, which run weekly. With all of our activities, we are able to provide a better understanding of the experiences of minorities and so play a role in reducing racism and antisemitism in Scotland.
