10 Reasons to Love Being an Assistant Manager

We could tell you tons of reasons why being an Assistant Manager at Mitchells & Butlers is a great job, but you know we’d be a bit biased! So, we caught up with some of our Assistant Managers from across M&B to find out the top 10 reasons they love being an Assistant Manager within the Hospitality industry (well actually 11- we got a bit carried away). 

You don’t have to take our word for it, see what they had to say:


1. Variety

As pub managers, we never feel bored or ground down by routine – every day is different!

2. The opportunity to make a real difference!

Having ownership of key business measures and seeing the difference that we make.

3. Atmosphere

Working with the most amazing hospitality teams and having a supportive work family.

4. Make a difference

One way you can bring the wow factor as an Assistant Manager is to show your passion for making a difference to people - both the team and guests.

5. Progression

Having the opportunity every day to develop our skills and knowledge so we can look back over the last year and see real progress. After all, ambition is what you need to succeed as an Assistant Manager.

6. The Hospitality ‘buzz’

Feeling the buzz of a busy shift and getting great feedback from guests in the pub.

7. Having Fun!

Party nights, special events, Halloween, Christmas, Easter, having a giggle on shift all give us a happy glow!

8. Growing Together

Seeing others develop and knowing that we have helped support that.

9. Work or Workout?

Always active. We ALWAYS win step challenges – friends and family never come close!

10. Insider Knowledge

Being seen as the “restaurant guru” when friends and family are deciding on places to go.

11. Not your typical 9-5

Never having to do your shopping during the weekend frenzy – often days during the week are our “weekends”. Also, you can be an Assistant Manager in the centre of London like Afton.
