Trending News: Want To Fly Around The World And Drink Whisky? Apply For This Job
Long Story Short
Grant’s Whisky is hiring a Global Brand Ambassador and to get the job you’ll need to fly around the world with a suitcase filled with whisky.
The whisky brand is searching for a Global Brand Ambassador and they’re prepared to send you on a world tour to prove you have what it takes.
Sound like your kind of thing? Here’s how to apply.
The first thing you have to do is make a whisky drink using Grant’s (of course) as well as two other liquids that represent your personality. Grant’s will pick the 20 best candidates and send them over to the original family distillery in Scotland where, if you’re lucky enough to be selected, you’ll compete in a number of challenges before the number whittles down to three.
Now here’s where the job interview really starts to get fun. The three candidates will be sent on a whirlwind 10-day all-expenses-paid trip to destinations ranging from Colombia and Poland to India, Taiwan, and South Africa. They’ll all be equipped with a suitcase filled with Grant’s and required to host events with local teams and influencers. Meanwhile, a video team will be documenting the whole experience.
Think you have what it takes? The best candidate must be at least 25-years-old and “resourceful, charismatic, talented, and have a passion for writing, traveling and mixology.”
Grant’s got the idea to do this interview because it wanted to replicate the journey taken in 1909 by Charles Grant Gordon, the son in law of the founder of Grant’s Whisky, William Grant, who set sail with a suitcase of Grant’s in an attempt to introduce it to the world.
And it’s not only the interview process that’s sweet. If you do get the job as Global Brand Ambassador, your role will also be pretty great.
“In today’s society, lots of people seek more flexibility and adventure from their work than a 9 to 5 day in an office,” Oliver Dickson, Global Brand Director, said in a statement. “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.”
