Lively, Fun Tour Guide Needed: Gin Enthusiasts Read On
We’re looking for a cheerful, engaging and lively individual to join our team of tour guides. The perfect candidate will be someone who has a great sense of humour, strong communication skills, and an enthusiasm for fabulous spirits.
Why You’re Interested in Us …
We’re a long-established, yet fast-growing and ambitious distillery based near Bristol. Our strikingly smooth 6 O’clock Gin turns heads with its beautiful looks and wins hearts with its delicious flavour; it has won plenty of awards in national and international blind tasting competitions. We are a family owned business with a team who go the extra mile and have a youthful and dynamic outlook. We are an entrepreneurial, creative and enthusiastic bunch and we pay attention to the details that make our customers happy
Why We’re Interested in YOU …
You are confident, reliable and personable. You have strongly developed communication skills to engage, inform and entertain our guests. You not only love working in a team, but you ensure everyone else in your team achieves to their best potential and has fun too. You have a positive, can-do attitude and you’ll be willing to get your hands dirty in organising, setting up and running tours. You’re a self-starter who gets on with what needs to be done without needing supervision.
What the Job Entails …
The position is permanent and part time. Tours run over two weekends per month; there are 2 tours on Saturday afternoons and 2 on Sunday afternoons. This amounts to 24 hours per month spilt over the two weekends.
