A dream job on the Isle of Mull that takes the biscuit

A bakery on the Isle of Mull is looking for a couple with a sweet tooth to join the biscuit-making team.

The dream job, in Tobermory, also comes with year-round accommodation – a complete scarcity on the island – making it ideal for a couple – or two good friends, ready to embrace island life.

With a population of just 3,000, the Isle of Mull is renowned for its wild and unspoilt landscapes and welcoming islanders.

Regularly topping rankings as one of the most beautiful places in the UK, picturesque Tobermory is recognised the world over thanks to iconic multi-coloured buildings along the harbour front.

And with no experience necessary – it could be the perfect career change or kickstart opportunity to work in Scotland’s world-famous food and drink industry.

The two full-time roles with Island Bakery Organics will include all aspects of biscuit production, including weighing ingredients, baking, chocolate work, and packing.



With a starting salary of £19,000-£22,000, there are also opportunities for further training and progression within the 34-strong team.

Stocked in Waitrose, as well as organic and deli stores across the UK, Europe, and the USA, the Island Bakery Organics’ range includes oatcakes, shortbreads, and favourites such as Lemon Melts and Chocolate Gingers.

The role is advertised with Scottish recruitment site, HiJOBS.

‘These positions are ideally suited for a couple or good friends, perhaps starting out in their careers in Scotland’s rich and diverse food industry,’ said Joe Reade, director of Island Bakery Organics.

‘We’re a close-knit team, employing a number of local residents, but see this as an exciting opportunity to welcome some new faces and give them a real taste of island life.’

Laura Saunders, commercial director and founder, HiJOBS, said: ‘This is one of the sweetest jobs HiJOBS has ever promoted.

‘It’s rare for a full-time, year-round role that includes accommodation to come up in remote locations such as the Hebrides, which is a real barrier in attracting new talent to the region.

HiJOBS prides itself on supporting rural Scottish communities, and Island Bakery is the ideal example of a local and successful family-run business with the community at its heart.’
