Job Description

Crerar Hotels is one of the highest quality privately owned hotel groups in Scotland.

The rightsizing of our portfolio has been well-publicised and the subsequent self-financed investment is underway. We've already delivered several million in capital expenditure and plans for a significant lift in standards at every hotel are in place and fully funded.

But all the outlay on bricks and mortar, cushions and curtains only really matters in a hotel with the right team.

In particular, our general managers are expected to be leaders and mentors, supporting their teams to embody and deliver Scotland's best hospitality experience. That's why we seek individuals who are unapologetically comfortable in their own skin; people who are interested in others and what's around them.

Thainstone House is one of Aberdeenshire's premier venues. Completely restored by Crerar Hotels, its quality and character are outstanding. The hotel represents an exciting opportunity to develop its reputation and grow its position as an award-winning events venue and leading choice for both relaxation and business.

The hotel encompasses 48 guestrooms, 2AA Rosette-awarded restaurant, a spa and leisure club, meeting rooms and a large event space with marquee potential. It's located in several acres of parkland, just nine miles from Aberdeen International Airport and the brand-new convention centre.

Due to family reasons, the current well-loved General Manager is stepping down. We look to welcoming a new leader for this important hotel.

If you believe Thainstone House and this position are suited to you, please get in touch.

Three reasons to choose a career with Crerar Hotels

  1. Destination locations

Voted 2018's most beautiful country in the world, Scotland provides a sought-after quality of life, ideal for outdoorsy types. Urbanites may find there are limitations, with reduced public transport, small local shops and occasionally – the ultimate modern hardship – patchy phone signal. But those who take that in their stride find that they discover true peace and quiet, wake up to incredible scenery and have Scotland's natural larder to feast on daily.

  1. Talent development

We always aim to progress staff internally where possible, which means a number of our team have been with us long-term. They've chosen to make a life in one (or more!) of our locations, building themselves a varied career in the Scottish hospitality industry.

  1. Shaped by our values

Pride, authenticity, creativity, focus, respect and hard work. These principles guide our actions throughout the company, from management's decision making through to the front line of customer service. They're reflected in the Crerar Trust's work supporting local charities and our Fair Fund, ensuring tips are shared equally with all staff.
