The event will take place between 3pm and 7.30pm and promises to showcase a wide variety of career opportunities available at Chivas Brothers spanning Production, Engineering, Warehousing and hospitality-based roles in its visitor centres. 

Attendees will have the chance to speak to Chivas Brothers colleagues and meet representatives from across the business, helping them to gain valuable insights into the roles available. Strathisla Distillery, which is the oldest continually working distillery in the Scottish Highlands, will also be open for people to visit. 

“We want visitors to explore the diverse career opportunities within our organisation,” says Ruth Simmers, Business Development Liaison who works closely with DYW Moray to create awareness and understanding around the opportunities in Scotch. “This event is a unique chance to learn about our company, the diverse roles we offer and how they can become a part of our dynamic team.” 

Hosting the event embodies Chivas Brothers’ commitment to the people of Speyside, including supporting local employment, development opportunities, improving education around the different roles available within the sector and driving greater gender balance in a traditional industry. 

“When you’re a part of Chivas Brothers, you’re a part of a united, inclusive community of teammates, rooted in communities across Scotland and around the globe,” says Brian MacAulay, Malt Distilling & Operations Director. “There isn’t one ‘type’ of person who fits in here. We’re rooted in the varied and vibrant communities we’re a part of – from the remote isles of Scotland to the towns and villages around Speyside, to iconic cities such as Glasgow and London. We openly welcome and unite people from all those communities; we’re the richer for it.” 

Kelsey Bruce, Distillery Operations Manager at Chivas Brothers, started as a seasonal guide at Strathisla over a decade ago. Since then, she’s worked as a Distillery Operations Technician, a Team Leader at Dalmunach and Scapa, and last year she was promoted to her current role as Distillery Operations Manager based at Strathisla, Glen Keith and Glentauchers. “Chivas Brothers has invested in me and my development from the start, giving me valuable insights and knowledge into the industry. I love that I get to work with an incredible team every day, in an exciting industry, and that I’m encouraged to be bold and innovative to help shape the future of whisky.”
