Current Vacancies

RYA Scotland currently employs 15 staff in a wide range of roles, from performance to training to development alongside administrators to assist in promoting and protecting boating activities, alongside over 70 volunteers contributing and leading our work for the boating community in Scotland.


Calling all Volunteers..

RYA Scotland exists to support and promote sailing and boating for everyone. We do that through dedicated staff members, a team of talented and experienced coaches and trainers but most significantly through an incredible community of volunteers. These volunteers contribute their time, experience and ideas week in and week out, giving back to the sport and feeling the positive impact they are making. We are looking to bring more volunteers onboard with us to contribute to the groups that shape our work and priorities. Please consider putting yourself forward. 

Join a sub-committee

Our sub-committees are the beating heart of our organisation. They bring together representative participants of our sport in groups which consider important aspects of our activity. Whether it is the intense experience of Performance, the more leisurely pursuit of Cruising in our beautiful waters or the joy of seeing greater Participation in the many clubs and organisations – there is a sub-committee to get involved with. These committees are not stand-alone talk shops, they engage directly with the RYA Scotland staff and have direct links into the RYA Scotland Board.
