If you’re looking for a complete lifestyle change, make a fresh start with Macdonald Hotels & Resorts!

Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, one of the UK’s most established and forward-thinking hotel groups, is seeking new team members at its Aviemore and Forest Hills resorts.

Relocate with us and you’ll be surrounded by some of Scotland’s most stunningly beautiful countryside. Think spectacular views, serene sandy beaches, networks of cycle paths and walking trails to explore and the opportunity to delve into the local landscape, with rivers, mountains, castles and lochs close by.

Our Aviemore Resort sits in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park – the perfect work location if you love to get active in the Great Outdoors! The resort also boasts the Spey Valley Championship Golf Course, recently voted one of the best – and most picturesque – in Scotland. You’ll love working in this lively resort and there’s plenty to see and do nearby. We also have the Spey Valley self-catering Resort nearby in Aviemore, along with Lochanhully Woodland Resort near Carrbridge, just a few miles north of Aviemore village.

Our Forest Hills Resort is set in beautifully landscaped grounds bordered by woodland that slopes down to the shores of Loch Ard in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park close to Aberfoyle. Work here and you’re perfectly placed to explore the nearby 50,000-acre forest park which extends from the eastern shores of Loch Lomond to the mountains of Strathyre. You’re also less than an hour away from both Edinburgh and Glasgow if you require the occasional big city fix.

Join our team and you’ll become part of the family at Aviemore and Forest Hills. In return for your hard work, we offer competitive rates of pay, comfortable staff accommodation, home-cooked food and a friendly environment where your downtime has the potential to be action-packed if you’re keen to get out and about!

If this sounds like the new life opportunity you’ve been searching for, we’d love to hear from you.
