Updated - Looking for professional genealogists to join my business
« on: Monday 08 July 19 16:00 BST (UK) »
1. Professional genealogist in Edinburgh or Glasgow

Professional Genealogist required to operate our genealogy experiences in Edinburgh or Glasgow. Must have suitable qualifications or a minimum of five years experience working as a full-time genealogist.

  • Work will be on an occasional basis (as and when bookings occur from the Family History Gifts website)
  • The genealogist will work for 4.5 hours per genealogy experience.
  • The genealogist will work as part of Family History Gifts as a franchise.

2. Professional genealogist in Manchester or Birmingham

Professional Genealogist required to operate our genealogy experiences in Manchester or Birmingham.

Same terms as above

If you are interested in either position please send a CV along with a 500 word essay describing a genealogical problem you have resolved. You must include your sources in the essay along with the correct citations for each source. Sources and citations are excluded from the 500 word count. The genealogical problem solved should preferably focus on English/Welsh or Scottish ancestry.

We pay you:

  • £20 – £25 per hour depending on gift experience.
  • Travel expenses up to £11,
  • Customer expenses up to £15.

Advertising the gift experiences

While we advertise on your behalf and take bookings via our booking system, you will also be responsible for promoting the gift experience on your website and on social media. This will obviously promote the gift experiences to new customers for the benefit of yourself and Family History Gifts.

We find that once customers embark on a successful genealogy experience, they are likely to return, providing you with future income.

Test payment

Should you apply and pass the job application process, we may also pay you a one off payment of £80 to help test the gift experience franchise with us.

You can still do your other genealogical work…

You do not have to work exclusively for us. While you work on our genealogy gift experiences, you are free to pursue other genealogical work with your own customers as long as they are not genealogy experiences.

If you are interested any of the above roles, send us a message or contact us using our online form:
