Security and Estates Officer

Gordonstoun has been leading the way in character education for more than 80 years. Our uniquely broad curriculum provides challenge in the classroom, on the sea and on the mountain, on the stage and on the sports field, and enables students to discover the truth in our motto – Plus Est En Vous – there is more in you.

Summary of Gordonstoun

Situated on the beautiful Moray Coast in the North of Scotland, Gordonstoun is widely recognised as the world leader in character education. We have a co-educational community of over 500 students aged from 6-18 who are predominantly full boarding and are drawn from over 40 countries.

Working at Gordonstoun comes with many benefits, including a sense of corporate citizenship where you become part of the family not a workforce. We have a generous pay range which is performance led and offer seven weeks annual leave as standard for our full-time staff.

Other benefits include a generous pension scheme, free PVG status, access to staff discount and cycle to work schemes and with our own fleet of minibuses we offer subsidised transport from Hopeman, Burghead and Lossiemouth. Staff also enjoy free meals while on shift prepared by our award-winning chefs who offer a diverse range of foods.

We offer a range of free accredited training courses to support staff and help them excel in their chosen profession or to diversify into other roles through interdepartmental working across the Facilities.
