Weddings and Corporate Hospitality Manager

Working closely as part of the castle management team, the successful candidate’s key role is to be responsible for the sales and operation of all weddings and functions at Blair Castle, reaching or exceeding annual performance targets. A hands-on approach is essential for this role and you will be expected to be fully accessible to clients, prospective customers and staff.

Weddings and functions impact on all areas of the castle operation and some wider estate departments (e.g. accommodation) and it is vital that you are a team player, working closely with other managers and supervisors to ensure catering, staffing, cleaning, maintenance and conservation issues are all considered when planning or delivering an event.

It is your responsibility to provide, through the castle team, an excellent experience for our guests, maintaining the high standards expected by the management team, our customers and in keeping with our Visit Scotland 5 star visitor attraction rating.

You will also provide back up for the Duty Management team, through which you will learn about all aspects of the castle operation, which will give you essential background to selling weddings and functions at the castle and ensure an excellent experience for our guests. You will be supported by an operations officer who can deputise for you and provide administrative back-up.

The castle is open every day during the main season (Easter to end of October) but we offer weddings and functions all year round. Our staff work on rota and currently our day visitor and function operations share the same teams.
