Diverse, ambitious and welcoming, we have an inherent desire to create unique and incredible experiences for both our guests and our people.
 
We’re now growing our team as we prepare for this remarkable chapter in our history, bringing these values and qualities to the city; we’ll be working hard, getting stuck in and having fun.
 
The People & Culture team at Gleneagles are on a new and exciting journey. We’re leaving the shackles of ‘HR’ behind and are set on building a people function where we truly put people, and their experiences, at the heart of everything we design, build and deliver. Building a strong employer brand, both externally and internally, is central to this.
 
For the position of Talent Attraction Consultant, we are looking for an astute, confident and meticulous individual to play an integral role in attracting and recruiting the very best talent into our business. As we prepare for the opening of the Townhouse this role will play a key part, ensuring we have all of our roles filled with exceptional talent.
 
We are open to having a conversation with you around flexible working.

Be part of our city adventure...
 
The Gleneagles Hotel is rich in history, for almost 100 years we’ve been sparking adventure across the Glorious Playground, our luxury 5-star hotel and country estate in rural Perthshire. Early 2022, we’re city-bound and creating a new chapter in our history, bringing our countryside flair to life on St Andrew Square, in the heart of Edinburgh.
 
We have lovingly preserved and restored the iconic, A listed, former Bank of Scotland headquarters to
create the perfect urban gateway, the ‘Gleneagles Townhouse’.
 
Gleneagles Townhouse will offer all-day dining in our vibrant restaurant; perfect for breakfasts, long lazy lunches and spirited dinners.  Our two bars will be striking, including a rooftop terrace where guests will enjoy extraordinary views over the city, previously only held by the rooftop statues!
 
Our 33 bedrooms have each been uniquely designed to inspire a sense of understated luxury, with an appreciative nod to the heritage of the building. 
 
Lastly, the Townhouse is also home to our members club, bringing together a community that has a passion for exchanging ideas, discovering new obsessions, collaborating together and simply having fun, with access to exclusive private spaces and on-site gym and wellness.
 
Gleneagles Townhouse will not only become part of the fabric of the city, it will secure its place as an unrivalled, aspirational destination for socialising and staying.
