The clue is in the name. We’re a family business through and through – family owned, family run, with a warm family welcome for guests and team alike (no embarrassing hugs or kisses though). Our seven hotels are unique (quirky even) and set in three stunning Scottish locations. Some are big, some are small and all offer good food & drink, great beds and a ton of outdoor and indoor things to do and a fun place to work.

The Kingshouse in Glencoe

A Scottish institution given a new lease of life. The Kingshouse Hotel is part landmark hotel, part adventurer’s bunkhouse – slap-bang in Glencoe and on Scotland’s world-famous West Highland Way. We have 57 bedrooms offering a great night’s sleep plus the bunkhouse offering shared rooms, a restaurant and two bars. Everyone is welcome and everyone will feel at home.

About the role

You’ll be part of our ambitious kitchen team. You'll take direction from our Chef de Parties and Sous Chef

You’ll be a people person and work closely with our front of house team to make sure our guests get exactly what they want, quickly.

What we need from you:

Commis Chef Experience.
Passion – we want you to bring your flair and individuality to the table
Team focus – there are no egos here, just hard-working people who love creating memorable experiences for every guest
Ideas and openness – we’re up for doing things differently and will try (almost) everything once
Fun and easy to talk to – we’re looking for personality, not a corporate clone
Flexibility – there’s no problem you can’t fix
You’ll get:

Development / Career progression – we’re committed to developing our people and will provide training opportunities to help you progress your career in hospitality
Great benefits – including pension, leisure membership, and discounts on food and hotel stays
Live-in accommodation – in one of the world’s most stunning locations
Uniform – We’ll provide full uniform
Getting here

We’ll supply regular transport for our team members who work shifts.

We’re only a 40 minute drive from Fort William and 1 hour from Oban

For those wanting to use public transport, you can catch a bus just five minutes from the Hotel. Buses also go from here to Glasgow/Edinburgh or North through the Highlands to Inverness – a couple of hours either way. There’s up to eight a day in summer and a few less in winter so good for getting away on your days off.
