Auchrannie Resort

“This is three of our youngest team members – l-r, Thomas Copperwheat, Sid Townsend and Eilidh Kincaid, they all started with us towards the end of last year. They joined our Recreations team on a part-time basis with hours worked around their school commitments, so mostly evenings and weekends. We also have young people working in our housekeeping and restaurant teams. During school holidays, they can pick up extra shifts, and we see lots of team members who start out with us in this way either come on board full time after school, or come back and work over holiday’s if they head off to College or Uni. Whilst they’re with us, they receive lots of training, including – in the case of Thomas, Sid and Eilidh – Emergency Pool Responder which includes comprehensive first aid training, as per the picture!  From a business point of view, our youngest team members bring so much energy and a really positive attitude to work. We take pride in giving them a great introduction into the world of work, and we hope that the values we install in them as part of our team will serve them well in their future endeavours, ideally here with us at Auchrannie, or if not, then in whatever direction they take.” Amanda Pirie, Auchrannie  Resort.
