Glasgow Life is the charity responsible for inspiring Glasgow’s citizens and visitors to lead richer and more active lives through culture, sport and learning.
At Glasgow Life we believe in the transformational power of the services we provide for the citizens of and visitors to the City of Glasgow. Glasgow Life has a lot to look forward to with the games and festivals of the 2018 European Championships and has a significant role to play in ensuring Glasgow retains its position as the world's 5th sporting city following the "Best Ever" Commonwealth Games. We operate 160 venues across Glasgow including Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the Emirates Arena, Mitchell Library and the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. In addition we are proud to be responsible for Celtic Connections, the Glasgow Club and the City’s 32 local libraries.
Glasgow Life services are the top performing services delivered by or on behalf of Glasgow City Council. Three of the top four scores for satisfaction are achieved by our services, including Museums and Art Galleries, Libraries and Sport and Leisure Facilities. None of this would have been achieved without the considerable strength of our workforce – building on our commitment to make Glasgow a successful and vibrant city.
Glasgow Life has 5 CLEAR values:
C - Customer Focus
Keeping existing customers and attracting new ones by delivering quality, relevant services is paramount to Glasgow Life's success. We always listen, understand and are polite with our customers and appreciate the diversity of those who use our services.

A - Achievement
Staff are our most valuable asset. We recognise and celebrate our achievements and are proud of Glasgow Life's contribution to Glasgow's success.
R - Respect
Integrity is key to the way we work as Glasgow Life. We are always open, transparent and we respect and listen to others in everything we do.
We are not all the same. We need different things, but we all rightly want and expect great public services. The size, scale and complexity of what we do means that what we do and how we do it has a big effect on the people that use our service and the organisations with whom we work. That’s why we our approach to equalities and diversity needs to be fundamental to everything we do. It’s not an add-on.
It’s the right thing to do. It’s the law. It makes business-sense.
But most of all, we know that being a diverse organisation makes us better, as an employer and a service provider.
We need to ensure our workforce represents the diversity of the city and our services are accessible and welcoming to everyone.
We need to be a great place to work where talented people get opportunities to progress.
