Sabhal Mòr Ostaig is the third-largest employer on the island, providing year-round employment opportunities. With over 100 members of staff, we welcome applications from those who would like to be part of an encouraging community, where the language is valued and there is an understanding of the importance of team in promoting and maintaining the Gaelic language.

Equalities are at the heart of what we do, and we want everyone to have the opportunity to work through the medium of Gaelic, with training opportunities for those who don’t already speak the language. With that in mind, we wish to have an inclusive environment in which everyone, whatever their disability, age, care experience, gender, nationality or identity, is able to participate without constraint.

Our Gaelic-essential vacancies are advertised in Gaelic only. Where an advert appears bilingually, the role will require Gaelic as a desirable skill. Please check the Gaelic version of this page for further employment opportunities within Sabhal Mòr Ostaig.
