Glengoyne – Housekeeper

We are Glengoyne…

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

We currently have an opportunity for an experienced, hardworking and reliable individual to join the Glengoyne family in the role of Housekeeper. As part of our small team of Housekeepers, you will be responsible for ensuring Glengoyne is maintained to the highest standards, providing our visitors with an all-round world class experience!

So… if you are passionate about cleanliness, presentation and maintaining high standards then this could be the role for you! We’re looking for someone who is efficient, can use their own initiative, has a positive work attitude and displays strong attention to detail. In addition, a warm and friendly personality will fit in well amongst the team. The day to day activities will include full cleaning of the visitor centre and staff office areas which will ensure the Distillery is in a ‘spick and span’ condition ready for the arrival of our visitors.

It is anticipated the role will be based on an average of 18 hours per week contract with expected working hours of 6.00am to 12.00noon on a ‘3 from 7’ day basis however, this is dependent on the needs of the business and hours may fluctuate in line with consumer demand, we are therefore looking for individuals who are flexible. Glengoyne is located North of Glasgow on the A81 at Dumgoyne, and as a result of the hours required and the flexibility needed, it is anticipated that applicants need to be within commuting distance to the Distillery and ideally with their own transport given the remote location and the hours worked. In addition, given the industry and product we service, to be considered for a role, applicants must be aged 18 or over.

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. This is a rewarding role with a competitive hourly rate, if this role appears to be ‘right up your street’, then we’d love to hear from you…
