The Scotch Whisky Experience

Part-Time Technical Assistant

Application Deadline: Sunday 14th July 2019
Are you proactive, enthusiastic and technically minded? Do you love learning how things work? Do you enjoy thinking on your feet to solve problems and not mind getting your hands dirty as you do so? If this sounds like you, then you could be our next Technical Assistant!

Location: The Royal Mile, Edinburgh, EH1 2NE
Pay: Starting rate of £9.27 per hour, increasing to £9.54 with experience
Hours: Minimum of 1 day (9.25 hours) per weekend, additional hours in high season
If you are a student, we can fit this around term-time

You will already be:
• Experienced in carrying out basic maintenance and fabric works
• Acutely aware of Health and Safety issues
• Flexible in your approach and a keen problem solver
• Experienced in working in support of other departments
• Determined to work to the highest standards you can
• Active and happy to walk up and down our many staircases!
• Outgoing and confident in communicating clearly with customers and colleagues

Perhaps you love tinkering with bikes and cars or maybe you enjoy building things in your spare time? Ideally, you will have experience in a technical, maintenance or trade role, but if you can show us you have the passion and skills to succeed then this isn’t essential.

The role will require you to:
• Work closely with your technical team colleagues
• Liaise with and assist other departments in a positive and helpful manner
• Carry out daily building checks and ongoing maintenance projects
• Investigate any problems and think on your feet to solve them
• Learn about our unique car-ride, and undertake its repairs and regular servicing
• Assist with plumbing, lighting, decorating and carpentry works as required
• Prioritise personal, colleague and customer safety in everything you do

In turn, we will develop you through regular coaching and training, and encourage you to gain the skills required to reach Senior Technical Assistant level.

We are a five-star visitor attraction in the heart of Edinburgh and our mission is to make the world fall in love with Scotch whisky.

Our Technical Team ensure that all areas of our business run seamlessly and safely for our staff and customers.

We’d love for you to look around our website and find out more about us. You could even have a look at our team blog which covers whisky, things to do in Edinburgh and a peek behind the scenes here at the Scotch Whisky Experience!

If you’re ready to apply, then let us know why you would love to work for us and show us how you have the skills and experience necessary, by sending us your covering letter and CV.

We can’t wait to hear from you!
