A pub job is more than just earning some extra cash. From flexible hours to fit around your busy schedule to the invaluable skills you’ll gain, there is a lot more to this experience than meets the eye. 

At Greene King, we understand student life, and that’s why we are sharing three reasons why you’ll want to snag a pub job ASAP: 

Reason 1 - You don’t need experience, to get experience 

You might be wondering, can I work in a pub with no experience? Well, the answer is yes! At Greene King, you’ll get the training you need to leave our guests with a smile on their faces. 

Whether you are interested in our bar or waiting staff jobs, you will learn how we craft cosy settings, serve chilled drinks, and dish up mouthwatering menus.

We win, learn, and celebrate together and this is one of the values that defines us. This value looks like learning from your teammates, evolving, and adapting with the business. 

But wait… Your journey doesn’t end there. This is just the beginning. Our bar and waiting roles are a great place to kickstart your career. It is a chance to get to know the business, and how things work, as well as develop your skills and knowledge. 

Once you find your feet, the options are endless. You can take advantage of our awesome Apprenticeships after you’ve finished school or university, explore new career opportunities in our Head Office, or if you enjoy the lively atmosphere of the pub, you can progress to pub management roles

Whatever your desired career path, we can help you to get there with our support and training. 

Reason 2 - Meet new and interesting people 

Don’t underestimate the fun factor in this job. Working in our pubs exposes you to a whole spectrum of people – from locals to travellers, regulars to newcomers. You'll be at the heart of pub interactions, forging connections and friendships that go beyond the bar counter. 

Every shift is a chance to meet new people from all walks of life, making your journey at Greene King truly memorable. 

Our culture is deeply rooted in friendships, relationships and camaraderie. It's our teams who help keep this culture alive and are the reason our customers come back time and time again. 

Reason 3 - Flexible hours 

We were students once too! So we understand your schedules can be a whirlwind of lectures, making time for your friends and family, for yourself, and for studying. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. 

Our pub jobs are flexible which means we offer shifts that fit around your schedule, giving you the freedom to earn whilst having time for your other commitments. 

A pub job with Greene King means you’ll strike the perfect balance between working hard and playing hard! 

Customers visit our pubs, restaurants, and hotels to enjoy memorable and fun experiences. This is no different for our teams. We want you to have fun and enjoy the lively atmosphere and social nature of the work.

Are you ready to see where pub life takes you?

If you’ve got a flair for making customers smile, we’ve got a spot waiting for you. Unlock new experiences, meet people from all walks of life, and balance college or university life all at the same time!
