Is this the greatest job interview in the world?
Job interviews aren't usually the most fun process ... unless you're applying to be Grant’s blended Scotch whisky's new global brand ambassador.
The best 20 candidates for the job will be invited to Scotland in September for a series of challenges. The top three will then be taken on an all-expenses-paid 10-day trip in October to multiple destinations – including India, Colombia and Taiwan – to promote their cocktails with a suitcase full of whisky.
The recruitment journey echoes the year-long trip made in 1909 by Charles Grant Gordon – son-in-law of William Grant & Sons founder William Grant – made with a suitcase of whisky to promote the blend worldwide. Candidates will even stay in some of the same hotels.
At the end of the journey, the successful finalist will be named Grant’s new global ambassador for 2018.
According to Oliver Dickson, Grant’s global brand director: "The role goes way beyond being able to make great cocktails. We're looking for somebody to embody the 'Stand Together' spirit of the brand and who can spearhead Grant's into the next stage of its global journey.
"In today's society, lots of people seek more flexibility and adventure from their work than a nine-to-five day in an office. This job offers travel, freedom, independence and a good salary too. We wanted an interview process to match the exciting and challenging nature of the role."
Applicants must be aged 25 or over and will be responsible for promoting William Grant & Sons internationally.
Interested applicants must be ‘resourceful, charismatic, talented, and have a passion for writing, travelling and mixology’.
