Are you looking to work somewhere with a feeling of community?

Then we want to work with you!

The Isle of Mull is the second largest island in the Inner Hebrides, on Scotland’s west coast. What does that mean? Red deer, white tailed eagles and native otters; stunning sunrises across the water; a sense of space, peace and a quiet life. There’s a really strong community amongst islanders, too.

It also means 35 minutes’ drive to the supermarket; 45 minutes on a ferry to the nearest cinema; a bus every two hours. The nearest airport is Glasgow, half a day’s travel away.

These are the realities of life at the Isle of Mull Hotel & Spa, where life takes on a slower pace in winter but is full on in summer. For our staff, these are all reasons why Mull has become home. The other draw is the welcoming environment they find living and working at our hotel.

We understand it can be daunting, making the leap to living on a wee Scottish island. That’s why we have plenty of opportunities for couples and are very understanding of those who have family elsewhere.

When you join our team we meet you off the ferry and assign you a buddy to show you around. We provide live-in accommodation in a dedicated block and staff meals. Just let chef know if you need a taste of home – the camaraderie between our close-knit team of international staff means we celebrate all cultures together.

We know all our regular locals by name, because they’re part of the family too. Will you join us?

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.
