Our Internal Mobility Commitments

Our Internal Mobility Commitments serve as the blueprint for our approach to internal career progression, and they are crafted with heartfelt intent to empower our employees to unlock their potential.

1. Advertising all vacancies
We advertise all our job openings, including those up to the Director level, to ensure that everyone within Greene King has visibility of all the opportunities we have available.

2. Detailed Feedback
We are committed to providing detailed feedback to all candidates, regardless of the outcome of their application. This feedback is invaluable for personal growth and future career success.

3. Expedited Moves
When individuals are successful in their applications, we expedite their transition to their new roles. This not only reduces disruption but also demonstrates our dedication, to their career progression.

Our Aims and Vision

Snippet Title

Our Internal Mobility commitments are a top priority because they align with the core of our strategy, specifically within our Greene Sky ‘Promoting Careers’ pillar. We recognise that the diverse opportunities available within Greene King offer the potential for fulfilling careers, and we are dedicated to supporting our people in realising this potential.

We are committed to encouraging sustainable engagement among our employees. By fostering a culture of internal mobility, we not only want to boost job satisfaction but also curb turnover, resulting in a more stable and dedicated workforce. This, in turn, contributes to the enduring growth and prosperity of Greene King, a win-win for both our valued employees and our company’s future. As part of this journey, we’ve implemented initiatives such as career events, CV health checks, and personalised development plans which will continue through into 2024.

Furthermore, through accessible career development, and gender equality plans, we’re fostering an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive. Our dedication to diversity and inclusion propels us toward our goal of 50% of women in senior leadership roles by 2030.

Likewise, by championing accessible career development and gender equality initiatives, we’re actively supporting an inclusive environment where each and every member of our team can truly flourish. One of the various initiatives we’ve introduced to assist this is our new maternity policy. These efforts are guided by recent findings that show an outlook shared by approximately 10% more women than men who believe that the current state of statutory maternity leave in the UK could use some improvement to better meet the needs of working women.
