For decades, it’s been our goal to be a “global Scottish brand, from the greenest company in Britain, created by people having fun.”
Ice cream is a fun product and an indulgent treat – so we think we should aim to have fun making it. Mackie’s business owes its success to the people working here – a loyal, flexible and energetic workforce who work hard in many ways to make delicious ice cream and chocolate, grow the business, adapt to change and meet the variety of challenges which occur daily. If you’d like to join the team and play your part in helping us achieve this goal, then we’d love to hear from you. You’ll find a bit more information about working at Mackie’s on this page, along with details of how to get in touch.

People are at the heart of Mackie’s, and we are committed to adding to the skillsets of each of our employees, providing full training for those new to the team and providing management and development training to our staff as they progress through roles and their careers at Mackie’s.
The hours worked by Mackie’s employees depend on which team within the business they sit within, and more details can be found relating to each specific open role, but generally Mackie’s employees work 5 day weeks at Westertown Farm, AB51 8US, often with the availability for overtime. Being set in a rural location, the ability to drive is likely to be necessary to get yourself to and from the farm for work.
