Do you love your work and always know exactly what your clients need?

Then we want to work with you!

Our team thrive on delighting guests, and that’s important because we welcome the return of many loyal Loch Fyne fans every year. Just now there are some big changes happening at the hotel, so we need more hospitality enthusiasts to join us on the next step of our exciting journey.

But we’re also after someone who does their homework before telling their mum they’re away to move to Inveraray. It’s a lifestyle choice, to live in the heart of Argyll, on the west coast of Scotland.

Inveraray is just a wee town on the edge of Loch Fyne, with lots of quaint old white washed buildings. In the summer, tourists pack out the castle and infamous Inveraray Jail. Things get pretty quiet in the winter.

If you love seafood, you’ll love the fresh local oysters from Loch Fyne. It’s Scotland’s longest sea loch – which is gorgeous, but can also feel remote. Inveraray is 90 minutes from Glasgow and you have to make the scenic drive all the way around the top of the loch to get there. The nearest train station is Oban, an hour by car, or buses go to Glasgow every two hours.

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.
