Recruitment

Join our Rock Stop 2022 Team!

Are you passionate about the North West Highlands, its landscape, and communities? Do you enjoy communicating with visitors and customer service? Then consider joining our Rock Stop staff team!

About the Rock Stop

The Rock Stop is a Social Enterprise set up by the North West Highlands Geopark Ltd in 2015 and is our visitor centre containing an exhibition, cafe and shop. It is located in Unapool on the beautiful shores of Loch Glencoul, just south of the Kylesku bridge, in the very centre of the our UNESCO Global Geopark.

UNESCO Global Geoparks don’t just have remarkable geology  – they are places where outstanding geological heritage is used to support sustainable development, through conservation, education, interpretation and responsible tourism. At the Rock Stop, we give visitors a warm Highland welcome and encourage them to learn more about the region through our modern interactive exhibition and publications. The cafe serves light lunches, hot drinks and homemade cakes, and our shop stocks locally made crafts and products.

We pride ourselves in being able to tell visitors about our area and in particular the stunning landscape we all enjoy. New recruits will get training in the basics from the Geopark staff and will have the opportunity to share their own ideas and interest.
