We are Hiring - House Security

A exciting opportunity to join the Bowhill team!

£30,000 – £32,000

Rent free accommodation & competitive benefits including private health & six weeks’ holiday.


Buccleuch is a diverse and innovative business with a passion for sustainable land use in rural Britain.  People are at the heart of Buccleuch, in particular, colleagues, tenants, customers and visitors.  Our commercial enterprises, including leisure & hospitality, agriculture, forestry, energy, rural estates and commercial property, provide approximately 500 jobs in local communities. 

This isn’t a typical security role – it is an exciting opportunity to join our team at Bowhill House, working in a hands-on role with a diverse range of responsibilities in a beautiful and historic setting in the Scottish Borders.  Bowhill House is set within a tranquil Country Estate, surrounded by beautiful gardens and waymarked walking trails.  

 As well as being responsible for security matters on a 4 day on 4 day off rota basis, you will carry out general maintenance, support contractors/colleagues and provide assistance to the Buccleuch family when they are in residence. The successful candidate will have experience in a security environment and ideally, hold a SIA, CCTV licence and first aid certification. 

There is an on-call element to the role so the successful candidate will be required to live within the boundaries of this stunning Estate in a two or three bedroom courtyard flat, which is provided free of rent (pets are permitted). While there’s no private garden, the surrounding Estate is available for use for the postholder and family.
