When you’re part of Chivas Brothers, you’re part of a united, inclusive community of teammates, rooted in communities across Scotland and around the globe.
You’re taking your place in a proud history, and you’re encouraged to be bold and innovative to shape the future of whisky.
You’re helping create products and experiences enjoyed around the world, with Scotland’s own rivers and fields at the heart.
Being sustainable is critical to our business, so you’re among people who openly care… about you, about our planet and about our whisky.
At Chivas Brothers, we celebrate the magic of human connection… we blend more than whisky.
These are the values that underpin who we are. Like our whiskies, we blend these three characteristics to create an environment where everyone feels welcome, cared for and has the opportunity to thrive.
Making whisky isn’t like making most other things. It’s a combination of art and science, nature and technology, heart and mind. It’s work to be proud of, and it needs people who understand that.
That said, there isn’t one ‘type’ of person who fits in here. We’re rooted in the varied and vibrant communities we’re part of, from the remote isles of Scotland, to the towns and villages around our bottling sites, to iconic cities like Glasgow and London. We openly welcome and unite people from all those communities and we’re the richer for it.
We’re also focused on the future. We’re proud of our heritage and we’ll never forget it, but we’re bold innovators, too. We always want to make things better for whisky drinkers, for our planet and for our teammates, so we look for people with a whole range of skills and we support them to grow, try new things and be as good as they can be.
Most of all, we take care of each other. Like our whisky, that’s something to be proud of.

Alongside this, we also offer payroll giving, through which teammates can make donations to a huge range of charities.
Teammates can buy a stake in our parent company, Pernod Ricard, through our share plans. These mean teammates can benefit even further when the company does well. Other income-related benefits include our bonus scheme and pension plan, which the company contributes to.
Through our reward and recognition platform, Angels’ Share, teammates can gift points to one another that can be spent in a huge range of high street shops and restaurants. All teammates also get an allowance to spend in our on-site shops, and have access to an employee discount scheme, which offers money off travel bookings, high street vouchers, days out and leisure activities.
Making the decision to start a family can be an exciting and overwhelming time for many. We also recognise modern families can take on many forms and have looked to create a more holistic approach to how we support our people through this life stage.
Our teammates are entitled to 26 weeks fully paid maternity leave or shared parental leave and eight weeks fully paid paternity leave, giving both parents the opportunity to spend time with their child during the first year. Enhanced adoption leave is available for our teammates at 26 weeks, fully paid.
