Do you have a passion for cleanliness, presentation and maintaining high standards?…


Setting the Scene…

The revival of the Rosebank Distillery, located in the heart of Falkirk, is well and truly underway and we’re very proud of the results.

Once revered by whisky connoisseurs the world over as the ‘King of the Lowlands’, we (Ian Macleod Distillers) were thrilled to acquire the Rosebank site and brand back in 2017, following its previous closure in 1993. Promising to breathe new life into the Distillery and honour it’s unique production technique, we have put significant investment into reviving the Distillery to its former glory.

In the summer of 2023, we were delighted that our Production team were able to gain access to the Distillery, and for the first time in 30 years’, the stills were fired up and we were producing Rosebank again – a very special moment for us indeed!

With the final construction work and the finishing touches in our Brand Home (visitor attraction) now nearing completion, we have our sights set on our next major milestone… opening the doors and welcoming visitors into this iconic Distillery from Summer 2024 – a very exciting time for both us and the local community in Falkirk!


Our Opportunity…

As we continue our final preparations for the full site opening this summer, we are now looking to expand our Housekeeping team with the addition of c. 6 Housekeepers, who will join us at this very exciting time in our journey!

We are very proud of the work we have done to revive Rosebank and are committed to providing exceptional visitor experiences. Our Housekeeping team play a vital role in this by ensuring our Distillery is immaculately clean and well presented at all times.

If you are someone who is passionate about cleanliness, presentation and maintaining high standards, then this could be the perfect role for you…


Who We Are Looking For…

Our ideal candidate would be someone who is efficient, can use their own initiative whilst also working as part of a team to achieve common goals, has a positive work attitude, displays strong attention to detail and dedication. In addition, a warm and friendly personality will fit in well amongst the team.

We are looking for candidates who can be flexible in their availability and live within a commutable distance to the distillery. We are open 7-days per week meaning weekend cover is required, however, it is our intention to rotate our Housekeeping team to provide fairness whilst covering our operational requirements. At present, we anticipate our Housekeepers will be scheduled 6.30am-12.30pm to ensure the distillery is clean and ready to welcome visitors for the day ahead. 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 can be flexible in their approach.

In terms of the day to day role activities, our Housekeeping team are responsible for maintaining the cleanliness and presentation across our site including our visitor and production areas, retail shop, tasting rooms, meeting rooms, back office areas and kitchens, as well as staff and visitor toilet facilities – given Rosebank is an impressive and large scale site this is no mean feat!

Previous experience in a similar role to ours would be beneficial but not essential as full training will be provided. Candidates must however be over 18 due to the nature of our industry and have existing proof of eligibility to live and work in the UK.


What We Will Provide You…

With a highly competitive hourly rate of £12.60, we offer successful candidates a permanent job opportunity and a generous benefits package. Our Housekeeping roles are offered on an annualised hours contract meaning you will receive a guaranteed monthly income.

We currently have up to 6 positions available and we are willing to consider contracts based on an average of either 12, 18, 24, or 30 hours per week. For candidates invited to interview, your individual preferences will be discussed further at interview, however, in line with our current anticipated business needs, we are looking for candidates who can commit to a 6.30am-12.30pm working day. From time to time, there may be a requirement to work additional hours, for example, to cover annual leave.
