Fair Work Statement

Home | About | Fair Work Statement

The Trimontium Museum is committed to the Scottish Government’s Fair Work First policy. We strive to ensure there are fair working practices in place in our organisation, and we seek to always support our employees with training and development opportunities. We are committed to promoting positive approaches to make the Trimontium Trust and Museum a fair, flexible, supportive, engaging and dynamic place to work. 

Effective Voice
We believe in empowering employees’ voices and we embed this at all levels of our organisation through regular meetings with the Trimontium board of trustees and through informal dialogue. Trimontium encourages transparency, inclusion, and openness to different opinions. We seek to create a safe space for all employees and volunteers. We recognise and respect the right of our employees’ to be trade union members.

We run a fair and transparent recruitment process with all job opportunities advertised through email, through known public job posting sites and via social media. We invest in training for all staff focusing on organisational priorities and individual personal development. 

We offer meaningful work which provides a reliable income. The Museum does not use or issue zero-hour contracts and opposes the use of fire and rehire practices.  We are committed to paying the Real Living Wage as a minimum for all posts.  

The Museum recognises the challenges and importance to balance busy working and personal lifestyles as well as the existence of different working styles. Trimontium strives to offer flexible and family friendly working practices that include appropriate and proportionate home-working where needed and where possible. We promote fulfilment at work and a feeling of belonging through staff and volunteer social events, special outings to heritage sites and organisational meetings. We invest in training, learning and skills development for employees in current and future roles.

Staff are entitled to be treated with respect and dignity at work and have a personal responsibility for ensuring that they treat others in the same way. We consider dignity at work to mean being free to work without experiencing bullying, harassment, discrimination and victimisation.

Health and Safety
Health and Safety for our employees and volunteers is embedded in the organisation. Our Health and Safety Policy is regularly updated and all staff, volunteers and trustees are aware of its contents.
