Meet Máté – Trainee Assistant Manager in 1887

What are you going to be doing this year at The Torridon? – I just got a promotion to trainee assistant manager therefore, I have a lot of plans for this season. Like, to become a confident and good leader to my team. Also, providing plus one service to our guest and maintaining consistency on day-to-day basis.

What has your career progression been so far at The Torridon? – To tell the truth, I am that kind of person who always looking for progression and new challenges. That is why working in Torridon is one of the best place for me to be. I started as a Food and Beverage assistant in the 1887 restaurant nine months ago, after two months I got promoted to supervisor and I am a trainee assistant manager now. During my whole journey I always got the right support, such as good training programmes and useful courses, which have made me not only better in my job, but also a better person in life.

What have you enjoyed so far? – I am enjoying lot of stuff here, Torridon is a nice place to be. I love my colleagues and the little community what we have here. I like the different type of challenges every day in work, but the main thing for me that I can do what I love which is hospitality in a good atmosphere in a five-star environment.

What have you not enjoyed so far? –  For me, two things. First, the Scottish midges they make your life harder here. Second, is the fact that I do not have driving license at the moment, so transportation is not easy, but I am lucky that I have nice colleagues and friends here, who offering a lift for me. I going to fix this problem soon, because the company offer their employees a personal development grant, what I plan to use to get my driving license.

What advice would you give to anyone applying to work at The Torridon? – My advice is, just go for it. If you are seeking adventure and progression in life, Torridon is a good opportunity for you. You going to find yourself in safe place with nice people around you at one of the most astonishing part of the Highlands. I almost forget, just a polite reminder do not forget to bring you raincoat with you.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? – The place itself is one of the most beautiful parts of the world I have ever been. I like hiking, cycling, kayaking and have a little wee dip in the secret river on a sunny day.
