Close knit team. Right in the heart of Peebles. Welcome to our neck of the woods.
Be part of the family... We’re a family business through and through – family owned, family run, with a warm family welcome for guests and team alike. Our seven hotels are unique (quirky even) and set in three stunning Scottish locations. Some are big, some are small but all offer good food & drink, great beds and a ton of things to do.
Peebles Hydro We’re set right at the heart of the Scottish Borders and offer a great place to relax, unwind and magically shut off from the pressures of modern life. We’ve been welcoming guests for well over 100 years but today is home to 132 bedrooms, 3 places to eat, 6 function spaces, leisure club, spa and oodles of outdoor space.
We need an energetic and creative person to lead the way on all the fun things our guests can do at Peebles Hydro. There’s our Leisure Club, our brand new Bike zone stocked with Genesis bikes, Segways, Air Rifles, Archery and kids club plus all our other guest activities and entertainment.
Providing a wide range of fun things to do in a beautiful place is a huge part of our story. We want our guests to feel like they’re getting away from it all at the Hydro and have some fun while they’re here. Our Activities Manager will have a natural enthusiasm for the outdoors and will be an imaginative and creative leader not only in the scheduling and delivery of each of our activities but also in the ways we can develop them further.
You’ll also cover Duty Management shifts, interacting with guests and making sure they have a memorable stay. It’s very much a hands on role.
We’re not part of a corporate chain of identical hotels but one of a small family of seven unique (and a little bit quirky) hotels, all in beautiful locations. You’ll get us – our history, our warm welcome and our desire to always be reassuringly surprisingly – and be able to bring it to life thorough our fun activities programme.
We’re investing in the hotel at the moment so it’s a great time to join us and get involved with the reshaping and delivery of our customer activities.
