Our aim is to be Scotland's leading resort and hotel brand.  And your role is to make it happen through brand management and planning, here's a little insight into your new role: 

  • You'll work across all eight hotels within the Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels and be responsible for owning the over-arching brand values the look, feel and key messaging of all branded family marketing campaigns. You'll ensure they compliment the individual hotel brand guidelines. 
  • You'll make sure the family messaging is relevant to the individual hotels and evidenced throughout their content too.
  • You'll oversee the brand guidelines, be a custodian of them and support the hotel teams when they need help in interpreting them.
  • You'll oversee and manage the PR calendar with our PR partners Tigerbond. Making sure key brand stories are distributed to raise awareness of the family brand and of the individual hotels. You'll promote these success stories online and through social media too.
  • Maintaining our strong social media presence will also be a pivotal part of your role. Supporting the social response team on forward planning, initiatives, scheduling, tone of voice and asset selection will all fall under your remit.
  • People buy from images and less from words, so sourcing the right partners for asset creation, briefing them on the photography/video style, cataloguing and updating the rest of the team and partners is all part of this role.
  • You'll bring the brand to life across the websites and through digital marketing. Your day-to-day role will not necessarily include website updates but you'll mentor and support the rest of the marketing team to make sure the messaging, tone of voice, images selected and customer journey is all on brand.
  • There will be times when you have to write blog content, so you'll have a little flair for writing and enjoy doing it. You'll enjoy briefing third parties that will help us with blog content.

  • You love writing content and briefing creative and you're happy to adapt your content style into the Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels tone of voice.
  • Your approach is mostly a customer first approach, you're comfortable looking at what data is telling you about customer trends and putting ideas in place to match those trends whilst upholding the family brand values.
  • You want to learn, develop and try new things. We can help you with your desire to know more.


  • It would be helpful if you did have experience within hospitality or tourism but it's not the end of the world if you don't, we'd be delighted to share with you the nuances of running a hospitality business. Having experience in brand development and brand management is a must.
  • You'll enjoy the challenge of educating and mentoring your hospitality family on the brand values and tone of voice and how they can use them within the operation.
  • You will be juggling multiple projects at once, so being organised is important.
