The Greatest Job Interview In The World?
Grant’s Whisky are sending three candidates on a world tour as part of the interview process for their Global Brand Ambassador vacancy.
The trio will jet off to three countries each over a ten-day period, with India, Colombia, Poland and South Africa amongst the destinations. Once there their task is to use a suitcase full of Grant’s as a bargaining tool, showcasing their resourcefulness and imagination by ‘swapping drams for unforgettable adventures that take whisky to the world’.
Inspiration for the project stems from a similar journey made – suitcase of Grant’s in hand – in 1909 by Charles Grant Gordon, son-in-law of the business’ founder William Grant.
The ideal candidate is said to be resourceful, charismatic and talented, with a passion for writing, travelling and mixology.
“The role goes way beyond being able to make great cocktails,” commented Global Brand Director Oliver Dickson.
He continued, “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 9 to 5 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.”
Applications are open now via the Grant’s website.
The world tour is the third stage of the process, with the first requiring candidates to design a drink that reveals something about their personality and the second taking the form of a special event attended by 20 candidates in Scotland this September.
Passed down through five generations of the Grant family since its creation in 1887, Grant’s is sold in 183 countries around the world.
Parent company William Grant & Sons welcomed Drambuie into their portfolio earlier this year.
