Job Description

A fantastic opportunity for a Bar and Restaurant Supervisor to join the award winning Machrie Hotel and Golf Links team on Islay, Scotland.  Would consider applicants looking for either seasonal 6 months or a permanent role.  Comfortable accommodation provided within walking distance of the hotel and the Islay ferry has a direct Citylink bus connection to and from Glasgow.

Overlooking the idyllic 7 miles of silver sands at Laggan beach the hotel opened late 2018 but already has been recognised as “Scottish Hotel of the Year 2020” and our historic golf links today is ranked in the top 20 courses in Scotland.  We feel it is now time for our Bar and Restaurant team to shine!

With panoramic views across the links and stunning ocean sun sets, Restaurant 18 and our Stag lounge are true jewels in the crown here at The Machrie.

Having good drinks and wine knowledge, bar service skills and a range of signature cocktails, could you be the one to blend our bounties from the island to create memorable experiences for our guests? With a wide range of whiskies from Islay’s 9 distilleries on our door step (including Bowmore the oldest to Lagavulin and Laphroig), 3 Gin houses (Nerabus Islay Gin, Botanist and Lussa) and a brewery responsible for Islay Ales your imagination holds no bounds, and our customers await.  Working with the Chef and Restaurant Manager to pair local whiskies with the food, you will delight in enlightening our customers to new possibilities. Where better to learn than on the whisky Isle itself!

Working as part of our Restaurant and Bar supervisory team you will also support and assist food operations.  After all food and drink goes hand in hand.  Having previous experience of supervising team members and leading shifts you will be able to manage the day-to-day operation and running of the bar and assist with stock taking and ordering.

We know island life is not for everyone, but if you don’t need the bright lights to be entertained, and instead can equally enjoy a simpler life appreciating nature’s glorious gifts then why not get in touch? 

Looking after our team members as well as our guests is equally important to us.  We provide a competitive salary, comfortable accommodation, a share in guest gratuities as well as the opportunity to become a member of our stunning golf links.  We believe 'service comes from the heart'.

We would consider seasonal applications from couples as we are recruiting other seasonal roles for the summer.
