A search is under way to find a new global brand ambassador for Grant’s Whisky, with the three final candidates taken on a 10-day world tour to test their skills.
In a job interview like no other, the finalists will each travel to three countries, ranging from Colombia to Poland, India and South Africa, equipped with a suitcase full of Grant’s.
Applications are now open for the role which will start in 2018. They are looking for people who are “resourceful, charismatic, talented and have a passion for writing, travelling and mixology”.
The format of the recruitment process is inspired by the trip taken in 1909 by Charles Grant Gordon, the son-in-law of the founder of Grant’s Whisky, William Grant. Charles set sail with a suitcase of Grant’s and an ambition to introduce it to the world. The brand is now available in 183 countries.
To apply, people need to suggest a drink for “all the friends you’ve not yet met”, featuring three ingredients that reveal something about your personality.
Entries from 20 people that best represent the “Stand Together” motto will be flown to a special event in Scotland in September, where they will be set a number of challenges, competing for the chance to become one of the three finalists.
Oliver Dickson, global brand director, said: “The role goes way beyond being able to make great cocktails. 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.”
