Concierge - FOH

1.   What attracted you to Loch Lomond Golf Club?

I had worked here during the Scottish Open and knew about the Club and its good reputation.

 2.   Is this your first season?

 This is my first season and I am really enjoying it so far. I love meeting all different types of new people.  I am working in a good team and enjoy mixing with all the staff in the other departments also.

 3.   How do you think Loch Lomond will benefit if you come back for a second season?

Loch Lomond will gain my experience from my first year.  I will know the job and I will know the members also.  My confidence in speaking to them will also have improved and I will know what to expect next season instead of having to be trained again.

 4.   What do you enjoy the most about working at Loch Lomond?

I really like the mix between working at the Club and being able to drive to various locations.   It is lovely to get out and about with the members and drive the gorgeous vehicles.  It is also such a breath-taking sight to stand on the front steps of Rossdhu House and appreciated where I work.  The view of the loch is magnificent.  The Front of House team has such a good combination of people as well and I am enjoying working with them all and getting to know them.

5.   How will you spend your time when the season ends?

I will be taking a break from the busy season and will go on holiday.  It will also give me a chance to do some DIY in my house and re-charge my batteries for next season.

6.   Would you advise someone to work at Loch Lomond Golf Club and why?

Most definitely.  The Club offers good staff benefits such as playing the course when normally, you would not be given that privilege. People should be aware that it is hard work and long hours but you are rewarded and it all pays off when you look around and see where you are working.
