If you want to manage a pub, restaurant or hotel, there’s no better place to do it than Greene King. Right now we manage over 1,000 pubs, restaurants and hotels across the UK. These include branded pubs such as Hungry Horse, hotels such as Old English Inns and restaurants such as Loch Fyne Seafood & Grill. Not to mention non-branded high street and community pubs.

All of which mean near-endless opportunities for you to manage the type of business you want, in the location you’re after.

Head office

Our head office in Bury St Edmunds plays a crucial role in the smooth running of our day-to-day operations. We have some 18,500 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 head office, and plenty of opportunities within each. Whichever department you’re in though, whether it’s finance, IT, property, marketing, administration or corporate or legal, you’ll provide the kind of support that enables the rest of our business to thrive – and keeps our customers happy.

Our Retail division operates a wide range of pubs, restaurants and hotels. Some of our leading retail brands include Hungry Horse, Old English Inns, Loch Fyne Seafood & Grill and Eating Inn.

Our aim is to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of every customer. How do we do that? By delivering outstanding value, exceptional service and unbeatable quality at every retail site.

We also tailor our offering by brand and, in some cases, individual pubs. This allows us to give customers a unique experience every time they step through our doors, and makes each visit that bit more special.

Our leading retail brands include Hungry Horse and Loch Fyne Seafood & Grill.


There are around 200 Belhaven Pubs in towns and cities across Scotland. And while no two pubs are the same, they all share great customer service, an award-winning product range and a warm and welcoming environment.

If you’re serious about joining the pub industry, there are a number of ways in which your career can develop. Maybe you want the freedom of running your own leased pub business.
