The Right Work/Life Balance

Commitment to Our Staff

At Skibo we firmly believe that happy staff equal happy members, and we like to reward our staff for their service. Each year you will be invited to a Birthday Lunch in Mr Carnegie’s Dining Room where you will enjoy a delicious two-course meal prepared by the Skibo chefs

Rewarding Loyalty

Many our staff members have been at Skibo for years, developing their skills and becoming part of the fabric of the club – some have even been with us for two decades! To reward long service, all staff members who have been with us for 5 years or more are invited to an annual celebratory dinner, and you will be rewarded at key milestones through your career at Skibo in recognition of your continued service.

Employee Benefits

All staff are offered a complimentary three-course meal whilst on duty (lunch and dinner). In addition to your salary, you will also receive quarterly tips and if you work over Christmas and New Year you will receive a festive bonus. You can also take advantage of the Skibo Staff Benefits Scheme, which offers discounts at a range of local businesses.

You are also able to explore the 8,000 acre Skibo estate by foot or by bicycle – a number of bikes are reserved exclusively for staff use.
