Can you handle the heat of the kitchen?
Success at Gleneagles is not down to a handful of individuals; each and every role is crucial to our success, so everyone is truly valued. Whether we’re serving whisky or serving tennis balls; preparing bedrooms or preparing afternoon tea; manicuring turf or manicuring nails – we’re united by a desire to create incredible experiences for both our guests and each other.
Once you’ve joined our team, it’s time to take advantage of some fantastic perks. A competitive salary, 30+ days holiday allowance and a generous pension contribution are a given, but we also reward our people’s efforts and loyalty with a host of other treats.
No matter what jobs we do at Gleneagles – whether we’re cutting hair in the salon, cutting grass in the gardens, cutting cookies in the kitchen or hitting cut shots on the golf course – we’re all cut from the same cloth! We strive for excellence at every opportunity and roll our sleeves up to support our colleagues before they ask. We’re driven, dedicated and proud, and our hunger for learning is matched by our thirst for adventure.
Be a part of history
When Gleneagles first opened in 1924, the media coined it the “eighth wonder of the world” and, for almost 100 years, it’s certainly lived up to that reputation.
Over the past century, our team have hosted events that have made history, our chefs have cooked banquets for royalty, our linkpeople have rolled out the red carpet for rock stars, our housekeepers have prepared rooms for presidents, our golf pros have taught James Bond how to play golf (yes, really!), and our reception and concierge teams have pulled out all the stops to ensure each and every guest who’s walked through our doors has felt special.
As we continue innovating, pushing boundaries and setting standards, we’re always looking for people who can help us build on that reputation of excellence and help to shape our future.
No matter what your role is or how long you plan to stay with us, we’re committed to helping you develop, progress and succeed.
Whether you’re a kitchen porter with dreams of becoming a chef; an apprentice greenkeeper who wants to become golf course manager; a waiter with visions of becoming restaurant manager; or a housekeeping assistant aspiring to become Gleneagles’ general manager, we support every member of our team to find their passion, gain new skills and knowledge and reach their professional potential.
Our range of learning and development programmes, management training sessions, career development workshops and internal secondment opportunities are designed to support you to grow and progress while you’re with us.
Equality & Diversity
We celebrate difference, welcome diversity of thought and are committed to building an inclusive community of people – with a specific focus on tackling the barriers faced by those from marginalised groups.
In 2020, our parent company, Ennismore, formed a Global Inclusion Council – which includes members of the Gleneagles team as well as external consultants – who have created a roadmap to show how we address inequality and discrimination through the five action pillars of Attraction, Learning, Culture, Representation, Community.
We’re proud to be a gender-balanced organisation, with half of all positions in our team held by women. This is present at all levels of our business, from career-entry roles through to our executive committee which also comprises 50% women. We recognise the growing demands on employees seeking to balance work and family responsibilities. View our gender pay gap report here.
We’re striving to ensure our impact on the world is a positive one, by minimising our carbon footprint; playing our part in preserving natural assets for future generations; and supporting our friends and neighbours, locally, nationally and globally.
We’re only at the beginning of the journey, but it’s a journey of continuous improvement. From our well-established ‘Green Team’ and litter picking challenges in the community, to our charity partnerships with Social Bite and Anchor House, and a full day’s paid leave for each member of our team to volunteer at a charity of their choice, our people are encouraged and supported to give something back and are helping us make Gleneagles a more socially and environmentally responsible place every single day.
Location, location, location
It’s no surprise that Rough Guides recently named Scotland the most beautiful country in the world. Gleneagles is located right at the heart of everything Scotland has to offer – surrounded by stunning countryside, yet also only a short distance from the bustling cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Perth and Stirling – so our people have the best of both worlds.
Make yourself at home
From the scenery, history and cultural scene to the friendliness and wry humour of the people, it’s easy to fall in love with Scotland . . . but we understand how daunting it can be to move far away from home for a new job. We'll do everything we can to help you feel at home.
When you get here, our friendly team will go out of their way to help you settle in. They'll show you round, help you register with the doctor and dentist and provide opportunities for you to make new friends.
- Our Team
With over 40 nationalities in our team, we’re proud to be a global family, which we celebrate in a range of ways, including a culinary calendar in our staff restaurant which sees our international chefs cook their home cuisine.
- Living here
Those living in our on-site accommodation have en-suite bedrooms and access to their own pub and gym. We also have a committee who manage our social calendar. If you’re not much of a cook, our staff restaurant will satisfy all your dining needs.
In the 1920s and 30s, Gleneagles was a playground for adventure seekers – a place where people travelled from all over the world to enjoy good conversation, great views and even better champagne. Since 2015, we've been celebrating that heritage - bringing back that spirit of fun and adventure and enhancing our glorious playground of country pursuits, sports and culinary experience for our guests.
