Job Description

Do you have a passion for whisky and a dedication to providing exceptional visitor experience? Well, this may be the perfect role for you…

Our opportunity…

We are Glengoyne…

Since 1833, we have been making our wonderful malt whisky at the Glengoyne Distillery, nestled in a beautiful and picturesque setting just north of Glasgow. We are very proud of our multi award-winning premium whisky and our visitor experience is rated on Trip Advisor as one of Scotland’s top-rated tourist attractions! At the heart of our brand, product and experience are our people… it’s our people who make the magic happen!

As we look forward to the busy year ahead, we currently have new job opportunities for engaging, hardworking and reliable individuals to join the Glengoyne family within our visits team, as one of our prestigious Distillery Ambassadors.

As a Distillery Ambassador, your role will be responsible for bringing our world class spirits to life; communicating our stories and brand through the delivery of immersive and engaging experiences in ways that truly excite and delight our visitors, leaving lasting memories!

--------------------------------------------------

Who We Are Looking For…

We are looking for friendly and charismatic individuals with a positive work attitude, who can use their own initiative and focus on providing exceptional visitor experiences as part of our warm and welcoming team. Our experience offering is varied and our visitors come from all over the world to learn about Glengoyne whisky, so the ability to adapt and build rapport with different groups and communicating effectively is essential (and any multi-lingual skills would be highly desirable, although not essential!).

The role is responsible for the delivery of tours, tastings, events and other visitor focused activities at our Distillery – the full job profile is viewable below. The visitor centre typically operates between 10.00 - 18.00, seven days per week, however, this is dependent on the needs of the business and hours may vary in line with consumer demand, we are therefore looking for individuals who can be flexible in their availability.

Glengoyne is located North of Glasgow on the A81 at Dumgoyne, and it is anticipated that applicants should be within commuting distance of the distillery and ideally with their own transport given the remote location. In addition, given the industry and product we service, to be considered for a role applicants must be aged 18 or over. Candidates must also be able to demonstrate that they currently have the required documents to live and work in the UK.

This is a rewarding opportunity and provides the successful candidates with a permanent role on an annualised hours basis, offering a competitive hourly rate of £12.60 and an additional benefits package. We are looking for the successful candidates to join us in late March 2024.

If this sounds like the perfect role for you, then we’d love to hear from!

Glengoyne is part of Ian Macleod Distillers, an entrepreneurial, family owned whisky and spirits business who own other premium and luxury brands such as Edinburgh Gin, Tamdhu, Smokehead, to name but a few… ‘Crafting Spirits With Passion’ is what we do best!
