In our pubs and brasseries our managers stay with us on average around five years. In hospitality, that’s exceptional.
Many graduates join us temporarily but then realise the career opportunities are many and varied, so stay with us to become managers or chefs; turning fill-in jobs into real careers.
So, whatever your ambitions, we are committed to working with you to become the very best you can be…
Here are a few things our people have to say about working here……
What fills me most with pride and joy is when I see a guest leaving the restaurant with a smile on their face; it makes you feel that the whole team’s effort has given the best results. SO SATISFYING WHEN ALL THE HARD WORK PAYS OFF. That’s the part of the day I enjoy the most. Yanni Michailidis, Sous ChefYanni Michailidis, Sous Chef
The best part of my job is watching team members - across a real cross-section of roles - PROGRESS AND DEVELOP IN THEIR CAREERS; be that on the apprentice scheme or in various areas of training. I’m currently working closely with the chefs to build a suite of training materials which I hope will make life easier for new starters and more effective for the kitchens. It’s exciting. Kate Pearce, Learning and Development ManagerKate Pearce, Learning and Development Manager
I would never have thought that COMING TO WORK EVERY DAY WOULD FEEL LIKE COMING HOME TO YOUR FAMILY where working as a team is fun and rewarding. I’ve built some amazing friendships with both my team and our guests. Sasha, Server at The King’s HeadSasha, Server at The King’s Head
I would say that whilst I have grown up through the ranks and been given many opportunities to learn, there are a few people who have influenced my professional development and personal growth. The ONE-TO-ONE GUIDANCE HAS KEPT ME MOTIVATED AND FOCUSED. I truly hope that one day I could be at thelevel whereby I could influence a team/business in the same manner that my mentors have guided me.
