Do you believe it’s essential to exceed expectations?

Then we want to work with you!

Thainstone House has a rich history, dating back to the 18th century. Once a grand private home, it’s now an elegant Aberdeenshire hotel where guests are welcomed with warmth and traditional Scottish hospitality.

Because the team at Thainstone House are on a mission: to create memories that last a lifetime. We’re highly motivated, driven to succeed and focussed on making our guests’ journey the best it can be. Of course, we also like to have a good time along the way.

Standing proudly in acres of its own woodland, Thainstone House is less than 10 minutes’ drive from the small town of Inverurie. The locals are polite, humble people – the kind who appreciate the Scottish produce available in their independent shops, lovely restaurants and great bars.

Inverurie offers all the amenities of modern life, too. It’s well connected, with direct trains running regularly to Aberdeen, taking just 25 minutes, as well as to Inverness. Aberdeen airport is only 20 minutes’ drive away, with flights across the UK and to a handful of European destinations.

As a beautiful mansion house in such an ideal location, Thainstone House is a popular choice for weddings, as well as spa and leisure guests and business travellers. Working here is an opportunity to further your career as part of a successful, award-winning team.

Can we tempt you to 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.
