Job Description

Be part of the family...
We're a family business through and through - family owned, family run, with a warm family welcome for guests and team alike. Our seven hotels are unique and set in three stunning Scottish locations. 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!

About the role

We're looking for a Ride Leader to join our Riding centre team at Crieff Hydro. Using your own initiative is essential and on our busy yard you'll be able to build relationships with our customers and team. We pride ourselves in being an approved centre. We look after 45 horses and with our 900-acre estate we have the perfect setting for endless hours of hacking, while our outdoor and indoor arenas are ideal for schooling and teaching.

What we need from you:

You'll be an experienced Ride leader with a teaching/coaching qualification.   If you hold a UKCC coaching certificate or BHS certificate that would really make us excited to hear from you. You'll support the manager by taking responsibility for the business when she's not there. We have a range of school horses, private liveries and youngsters each with their own unique personalities and abilities so you'll have experience in schooling all types of horses to get the best out of them. We're looking for a degree of flexibility to meet business and customer needs. We'll also need to carry out a full PVG Disclosure Check.

What you'll get from us

  • The chance to work in a friendly, forward thinking company with investment as a priority.
  • Great benefits - including pension, and discounts on leisure membership, food and hotel stays
  • Live in accommodation may be available
