Some are big, some are small but all offer good food & drink, great beds and a ton of things to do.

Crieff Hydro Hotel

Pretty much in the centre of Scotland, we're set in a 900acre estate in stunning Perthshire. Home from home, we've been welcoming generations of families for 150 years. We have 215 hotel bedrooms, 55 self-catering lodges, six restaurants and over 60 onsite activities- there really is something for everyone!

It's a varied role so no two days will be the same.

  • As you'll be driving tractors and other vehicles around the estate, you'll need a driving licence

  • Ability to develop further skills and willing to attend further training courses.
  • Ability to plan and organise work schedule.
  • Previous experience in refuse collecting and waste management 
  • Be able to work outside in all weathers and also be able to work at heights.

  • Live in accommodation may be available
  • Shift patterns will vary from 8am in the morning to as late as 8am at night.
