RECRUITMENT OPEN DAYS
Friday 7th Feb 2020 – (3.00pm – 7.00pm)
Saturday 8th Feb 2020 – (10.00am – 2.00pm)
Please phone 01599 555202 or e-mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment for an informal chat on either of these two dates.
Our initial meeting with you won’t be anything too heavy or intense; simply a chance for us to get to know each other and discuss the different opportunities available.
Please see below for more information.
2020 is now upon us and we’re busy preparing for another season. The first and most important part of this process is the recruitment of the right people and we’re happy to now announce the confirmed dates for our annual Recruitment Open Days.
As a flexible employer, we have Full-Time, Part-Time and Seasonal positions available; so come and have a chat with us about whether we have something that might suit your own specific needs.
You might be a parent with young children and only want to work a few days per week, or someone who is semi-retired and wouldn’t mind utilising some of those life skills you’ve gathered over the years. You might be in a completely different line of work or industry and simply just fancy a complete change of direction! You might even have just relocated to the area and are trying to make new friends and work colleagues. Whoever you are and whatever your background is, we’d be delighted to hear from you!
We care passionately about our social responsibilities and our role within the local community. We take huge pride in the fact that we were originally one of the very first employers in the highlands to gain Living Wage Accreditation. Every single employee (aged over 18) earns, as a minimum, a rate of at least £10.00 per hour, with many positions paying even higher. We also provide a contributory pension scheme, 28 days paid holiday per annum (pro-rata) and social events that are fast becoming legendary! For some positions, and the right candidates, we can even help with accommodation.
In short, if you’re looking for a new challenge, in an environment where your efforts and commitment will be truly appreciated, then come and have a chat with us. Give us a phone on 01599 555202 or send us a letter and your CV to email@example.com
Have a read through some of our current vacancies below and give us a call to confirm a convenient day and time to meet.
We’re renowned for the quality of our baking and demand has never been higher. We’re keen to talk to people with sound baking skills and can offer work on either a full-time or part-time basis.
This Spring we’ll be launching an exciting new purpose built catering facility in the new extension to our visitor centre. We’re now recruiting for inspired chefs to help develop the operation and the successful candidates will have a unique opportunity to shape the direction of the new operation.
Castle Guides (p/t)
We are seeking to recruit seasonal tour guides to work inside the castle itself. We are particularly keen to hear from you if you have the skills and experience of dealing with the public in a tourism-related environment. Previous experience in the heritage sector is unnecessary as it is more important that you possess a warm, cheerful, and welcoming personality. All other training will be provided.
This year, we welcome applicants who might wish to job share and work on a part-time basis (2 or 3 days per week.)
Visitor Services Agents
If you’re a caring individual with a warm, welcoming and enthusiastic personality we’d like to hear from you. We have a number of positions with very varied responsibilities where we are looking for friendly folk to interact directly with our visitors. One minute you might be selling tickets from our sparkling new ticket office; the next you might be handing out our new audio-guides and offering visitors simple instruction and assistance. You might be snapping a photo for that visiting family from Australia, or simply directing someone in the direction of our coffee shop or gift shop. Visitors always have a myriad of questions, and you and your chatty personality will be central to helping them.
We’re looking for two great all-rounders! People who crave variety in their workplace and who possess the skills and flexibility to move seamlessly from one department to another. Within the operation, pressure points move and change throughout the day so having people who can slot in wherever they might be needed is a huge advantage. This role is not for everyone as some people like to stay put in the one department, but we have a comprehensive training programme that will help the right individuals enjoy a vibrant and exciting role. You will rotate between our Gift Shop, Visitor Services, Castle, and Catering operations, so no two days will ever be the same!
(Coffee Shop & NEW Takeaway Outlet)
We’re going to be opening a brand new takeaway catering concept in 2020, located within the new extension to our visitor centre. We’ll be looking for people to help us launch that new operation, as well as searching for the right kind of people for our traditional Coffee Shop.
Gift Shop Assistants
We will have a requirement for assistants in our busy Gift Shop. Previous retail experience and/or knowledge of EPOS systems would be preferable but not essential as training will be provided to the successful applicant. Full-time and Part-time positions are available.
With our expanding visitor centre, we’re looking for cleaners, either on a part-time or full-time basis. We can be flexible with numbers of days and number of hours, so why not come along and have a wee chat about what might suit you.
