Scots hotel banishes blues by recruiting for ‘Head of Fun’

Ditch the desk job and do something special, says GM

A Scottish hotel believes it could be advertising the most coveted job in the world.
Peebles Hydro has decided to buck the trend on what i traditionally believed to be the most depressing day of the year – otherwise known as ‘Blue Monday’ – and is recruiting for a ‘Head of Fun’.
The 125-year-old hotel, which is situated less than 25 miles from Edinburgh, says it’s searching for someone energetic and creative who can lead the way on fun activities at the rural resort.
General manager Patrick Diack says he hopes the new job opening will inspire people to ditch their desk jobs and apply to be part of something special where no two days are the same.
He said: “We can’t think of a better time of year to recruit for a Head of Fun. January can be such a gruelling time of year for many and perhaps ‘Blue Monday’ will bring us some amazing applicants who are ready to have some fun at Peebles Hydro.
“The position is certainly not a desk job, this is a hand-on position for someone who gets a kick out of bringing a smile to the faces of people of all ages and is adept at connecting with people.”
