Since 1957, we’ve enriched the lives of millions of young people by delivering inspirational learning through outdoor adventure.

We are searching for an incredible HOUSEKEEPING TEAM LEADER to join the team at Dalguise, our activity centre located in Dunkeld, Perthshire.

Many children feel nervous about staying away from home. At PGL we take pride in making our young explorers feel as welcome as possible with a comfortable & clean environment. A great night’s sleep in a freshly made bed will leave them raring for a new day of adventure!

Reporting to the Housekeeping Manager, you’ll be responsible for leading a team of Housekeeping Assistants to ensure all our guest & communal areas look and feel warm and welcoming, creating fantastic first impressions and making our visitors feel at home.


You’ll need great interpersonal skills to assist and engage with our guests, leadership ability to inspire and lead your team, and confidence and problem-solving talent to resolve any issues that stand in the way of delivering excellent guest experiences.

We’re looking for individuals with three or more months experience within a housekeeping role and a recognisable qualification in Health & Safety. Experience of working with young people and supervising a team is a bonus, but not essential for this position.



We are renowned for our personal development & investment in people, we are ready to support you in your career development, each step of the way! You’ll have all the training you need to be confident and successful in your role, be equipped with a personal development plan, and access to nationally recognised qualifications funded by PGL to give your career the very best start.

  • Happy holidays - time to recharge and enjoy time away from the workplace. You’ll also enjoy an extra day off on your birthday!
  • Investing in your future – with sector leading family friendly policies and a contributory pension
  • Good living, for less - access to big savings and exclusive perks that span a huge range of retailers and service providers. Plus PGL discounted holidays and 20% discount in all our on-site shops
  • Take care of mind, body and soul - your wellbeing is top priority, so we’ve created a WELLBEING HUB for all our colleagues alongside access to Employee Assistance Program, cycle to work scheme and health cashback plan.
  • Smart saving, affordable borrowing – access to our financial wellbeing platform for financial support when you need it. This includes easy and affordable saving and borrowing directly from your salary, plus useful guides on how to effectively manage your money.
  • Doing good does you good - paid time-off to volunteer your time to worthwhile causes.

We pride ourselves on hiring the best people, and recognise the importance and benefits of a diverse and inclusive team. However, the protection and safeguarding of the children visiting our centres is our primary concern. So all colleagues are required to undergo an Enhanced criminal records check (known as a DBS), which we will pay for. You will be required to provide a 5 year address history and ID documentation (ie British or Irish passport or birth certificate). If you have a conviction related to violence, drugs or safeguarding this could affect your application. Not all criminal convictions will be a bar to working for us and we will consider the results on an individual basis. You can find more information on DBS checks on the website.
