If you are interested in joining our team and would like to chat with us, please write to Krzysztof Dudkowski, General Manager at

We need professionally minded people of all ages and at all levels of experience to commit to being with us for at least one full year - or many more! In return, we provide the highest quality of training and will do all we can to help you develop your career. For thirty-five years, The Three Chimneys has been an incubator for top talent in Scotland's Hospitality Industry. Some of our recruits have so enjoyed our team ethos and island life, they have made their long-term homes here. Other alumni have moved on to create their own restaurants, or to some of the most exciting jobs in the United Kingdom and internationally.


1. Global Destination

After 35 years of welcoming guests with warm hospitality and true professionalism, The Three Chimneys Restaurant and The House Over-By have reached a special place in the world. We have become an iconic, Scottish destination experience which so many travellers are drawn to with high expectations of what they will discover. It takes a lot of forward planning to get here and our guests have already invested much of themselves before they even walk through our front door. This places every member of our team in the privileged position of looking after people who are truly looking forward to having a great time with us. On the whole, they are a joy to look after.

2. Professional Mindset

The great mix of personalities which make up #TeamThreeChimneysSkye has been celebrated time and again in our recent reviews. It takes a professional "family" of forty-five people, all living and working together on Skye to make The Three Chimneys happen.

We are open to applications from people at different stages of their lives. We recruit young people, often just out of school. We recruit established hospitality high-flyers who are on a fast-track to leading careers in the industry. We recruit career-changers who may have accrued a wealth of experience in other professions but who are re-focusing their work into the world of food, drink, hospitality and tourism. We have part-time staff, often residents from the local community, who work with us alongside their other island activities.

What everyone has in common is the same professional mindset. We need to know you are fully committed to providing our guests with the best experience possible. Given that commitment, we are willing to invest in every aspect of your training. We also support every effort team members make to acquire external qualifications. This year alone we have been involved directly with the Hospitality Industry Trust Scotland, The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, The Wines and Spirits Education Trust and The Court of Master Sommeliers.

The quality and expertise of our staff were crucial factors in being named UK Restaurant of the Year in The Good Food Guide 2018 and winning the AA’s prestigious Food Service Award, for best Restaurant Service in the United Kingdom. We have just won the Blue Badge Access Award 2020 for the finest Design and Guest Service in the World. These Awards recognise dedicated work which we all feel proud of and they add great distinction to a CV and a professional career.

3. Skye Life

Choosing to work at The Three Chimneys also involves making the lifestyle choice of coming to live on Skye. Recently voted the most beautiful place to live and work in the United Kingdom, the daily connection with such a breath-taking environment is an essential element of what attracts people to come here. However, Skye life lacks easy access to many of the amenities which urban dwellers take for granted. You must take that into consideration.

Our stunning location also lies right at the heart of what makes working here unique. Over many years we have built up special relationships with a committed range of local suppliers, crofters, farmers, foragers and fishermen. This means that - more than almost any other restaurant in the country - we have one of the closest working relationships between those who produce our high-quality ingredients, our chefs who cook them and the team who serve the finished results. For anyone truly passionate about fresh produce and the pleasure of serving it, this often trumps all other considerations.
