We have entered into a partnership with Job Centre UK to offer job trials to people considering a career in one of our businesses. Greene King is proud to be 'BACKING YOUNG BRITAIN', the campaign to encourage businesses to provide more opportunities for young people through jobs, apprenticeships and work experience.
We also support people who might face barriers to employment to achieve their full potential – in one such case, at the Bradmore Arms in Wolverhampton, our work was recognised when we were runner-up in the Local Employment Partnership Awards.
With an eye on the future of our business and attracting the best talent, we have in place a graduate training scheme. Each year we aim to attract managers of the future from universities across the UK. This investment in attracting and training the best personnel is a key strand of our business growth strategy and will see successful candidates running their own venues within the estate by the third year of the programme.
We provide dedicated training programmes and development courses to ensure constant growth both for individuals and the company as a whole.
Our induction programme ensures all pub staff are trained on entry in compliance, licensing, conflict management, food safety and health and safety (including fire safety). All of our managers are trained to food safety standard Level Two.
