  • Our Food & Beverage waiting team prepare beautiful coffees, mix ice-cold G&T's and serve delicious meals to our members and guests.
  • As one of the largest departments at the Club, the Food & Beverage team are a friendly, enthusiastic bunch of all ages and levels of experience, from both the local area and further afield.
  • Working across the estate, this dynamic team provides food and drinks service in a variety of locations.

Every day is different!

About the role

  • As senior waiting staff, you will support the training of new team members through shadowing where you will lead by example.

"What I love most about working at Skibo is the chance to meet people from all over the world. I really enjoy the mix of fine dining and relaxed brasserie-style service that we offer as it means the job has a lot of variety. I've also had the opportunity to train and develop during my time at the Club, and have recently gained a qualification in wine tasting."
