Our office-based teams play a huge part in ensuring our customers have a great time with us, every time. We work behind the scenes to guarantee the smooth operation of our pubs, restaurants, hotels and breweries.
WORKING AT OUR HEADQUARTERS
Our headquarters in Bury St. Edmunds and Pub Company support centre in Burton play a crucial role in the smooth running of our day-to-day operations.
We have some 44,000 people all across the UK who rely on us for guidance and support. Making sure we deliver this to a business as large and fast-paced as Greene King isn’t always easy, but with the right attitude and an unyielding commitment to our customers, anything is possible.
As you’d expect, there are many different departments at our headquarters and Pub Company support centre, and plenty of opportunities within each. Whichever department you’re in though, whether it’s finance, IT, property, marketing, administration, corporate or legal, you’ll provide the kind of support that enables the rest of our business to thrive – and keeps our customers happy.
A day in the life of Alice Barriball, head of resources at Greene King
Alice has been part of the Greene King team for a couple of years and heads up all aspects of resourcing across our corporate functions. Day-to-day Alice works with headquarter and support centre departments to make sure they’ve got the right people they need, in the right roles. She takes care of everyone, from our people in entry-level positions all the way through to our board-level executives.
Alice and her team are also constantly on the look-out for external top talent to bring into the business. Greene King is such a broad business, she’s always scouting out the best people from all sorts of different industry backgrounds.
The great thing about Alice’s role is that she gets to work with almost every single profession out there. In any one day, Alice could be working with a chartered surveyor, an accountant, a marketing professional, an IT technician, a graphic designer, a lawyer and a buyer – and that’s before lunch!
"What’s great about Greene King is that it’s just as fun working here as you’d imagine a hospitality company to be. Even though we’re a big business, we still manage to keep the relaxed, family feel in our day-to-day work and it’s super-social too."
"But the thing I enjoy most about working at Greene King is that it’s fast-paced, ever-changing, open to fresh ideas and every single person in the company has an opportunity to have a direct impact on the business. I love it!"
