If life on the mainland is making the prospect of island living more and more appealing, then you should know that Isle of Jura single malt whisky is looking for a Brand Home Manager that will be based on its tiny home island. Current population circa 212 people.
Once described by George Orwell as ‘the most un-get-at-able’ place, Jura is located off the west coast of Scotland.
Since 1810 the distillery has been the shared endeavour at the heart of the community. The company says that’ Islanders acknowledge that life on Jura is a little different. It’s a beautiful place defined by the sea that surrounds it and the people that have come here to make a life, it is a place where time moves differently, and life is truly a long way from ordinary.’
It’s also not uncommon for residents of the island to take on additional duties across the island (The current Brand Home Manager is a part-time Fire Fighter).
Daryl Haldane,Global Head of Experience, said, “We are looking for a special person to welcome our visitors as they make the journey to Jura. In return you will have a unique opportunity to experience Jura as the community do – a place that is really quite special indeed.”
