If you haven’t already, please browse around our company internet pages, immerse yourself in our colourful history and sample the details of our brands.

Our opportunity…


Since 1833, we have been making our wonderful malt whisky… We have a multi award winning premium whisky and our visitor experience is rated on Trip Advisor as one of Scotland’s top rated tourist attractions! Nestled in a beautiful and picturesque setting just north of Glasgow, stands our beautiful Glengoyne Distillery. At the heart of our brand, product and experience are our people… it’s our people who make all of the magic happen!

We currently have an opportunity for an experienced, hardworking and reliable individual to join the Glengoyne family in the role of Housekeeper. As part of our small team of Housekeepers, you will be responsible for ensuring Glengoyne is maintained to the highest standards, providing our visitors with an all-round world class experience!

So… if you are passionate about cleanliness, presentation and maintaining high standards then this could be the role for you! We’re looking for someone who is efficient, can use their own initiative, has a positive work attitude and displays strong attention to detail. In addition, a warm and friendly personality will fit in well amongst the team. The day to day activities will include full cleaning of the visitor centre and staff office areas which will ensure the Distillery is in perfect condition ready for the arrival of our visitors.

This role will be offered on an annualised hours basis. In practical terms it is anticipated the role will be based on an average of c.24 hours per week. Expected working hours would however need to cover between 6.30am to 12.30pm on a ‘c.4 from 7’ day rotational basis.

As working shifts will be dependent on the needs of the business, hours may fluctuate in line with consumer demand, so we are therefore looking for individuals who are flexible in their approach. Glengoyne is located North of Glasgow on the A81 at Dumgoyne, and as a result of the hours required and the flexibility needed, it is anticipated that applicants need to live within commuting distance to the Distillery and ideally with their own transport given the remote location and the hours to be worked. Candidates must also be able to demonstrate that they currently have the required documents to live and work in the UK.
