Don’t just take our word for it

Whether you work in a restaurant, or in the outdoors, working in tourism can take you to new heights. Literally. 

The Tree Climber | Tim Chamberlain

To support measures to address the continued staffing crisis across Scotland’s tourism industry caused by the impact of COVID-19 and the workforce shortage resulting from Brexit, we’ve created “Working in tourism”.  

“Working in tourism” includes a series of video case studies showcasing the diverse range of dynamic jobs that are available, told by individuals who work in the sector. Through these inspirational stories we hope to illustrate that working in tourism can be an exciting and rewarding place to work. 

 Following on from the #LoveWhatYouDo recruitment campaign last year, this video series celebrates the people and businesses who have helped make lasting memories for each one of us. 

We’re calling on people who work in the sector, to share what they love most about their job, how it’s impacted their life in a positive way and encourage others to take the career step into tourism.  

We’ve got three inspirational stories to get us started. These videos can be used to share alongside your job vacancies to capture the imagination of potential talent for your businesses or organisation.

Hear from:

  • Tim Chamberlain, Director at Wild Tree Adventures in the Scottish Borders 
  • Bridgeen Mullen, Visitor Centre Manager at Clydeside Distillery in Glasgow 
  • Sarah Heward, Owner of the Real Food Café in Tyndrum

All these case studies have been created as a tool to help support the tourism sector when recruiting staff and are available for you to share from our corporate YouTube channel.  

Tourism is a force for good. The impact of tourism spreads far beyond the industry itself - it benefits our economy, our community and our wellbeing.
