Christmas is coming, and we can hear Santa's bells fast approaching. That's right, it's almost time to dust off the Christmas jumper and get the decorations out of the box. If you're not excited just yet, hold on to your sleighs because we've got some things to share with you.

What is Christmas all about? At M&B, it’s about spreading the festive cheer, listening to your favourite crimbo tracks on repeat, picking up extra cash for Christmas gifts, 33% employee discount on your favourite Christmas food and drinks, creating special memories for our guests, and more!

Do you want to be a part of the action? If joining the M&B family sounds the right fit for you, here are five reasons why we think you should choose a Christmas job at M&B.

1. Help people make great Christmas memories

If there's one thing the last few years have taught us, it's that spending time socialising with friends and family is good for the heart and soul. So you can bet your bottom dollar that our pubs, bars and restaurants will be brimming with guests throughout the holiday season, all excited to make great Christmas memories. Whether you're working front of house or back in the kitchen, there's no doubt you'll be making spirits bright.

Whatever the season, working at M&B is about delivering a great experience for our guests. But you won't be doing it on your own. As Assistant Manager Afton explains, 'It’s a cliché to say it, but there is no ‘I’ in team, and that’s exactly what makes working with them on a daily basis so great.' The camaraderie here is like no other, and you can bet that you'll make great memories too.

2. Earn some extra money over Christmas

Perhaps you've got a fair few presents to buy for your nearest and dearest. Or maybe you want to save up some extra dosh. A Christmas job at M&B could be perfect for a few reasons. Firstly, we offer part-time jobs which you can fit around your current job. We also have a bunch of full-time jobs where you'll have the option to pick up some extra shifts. And lastly, you can expect to scoop up some generous tips – just what you need to buy some special gifts or to spend exploring the Christmas markets

3. There's something for everyone

With over 1,600 businesses in villages, towns and cities all over the UK and a range of jobs at each, there truly is the perfect job for everyone. You might be new to the world of cheffing and fancy trying your hand at a Kitchen Assistant job. Or you have experience working front of house, and you know just how to deliver excellent customer service. Whichever it is, we're sure there's a role that's suited to you.

We know that our jobs attract people from all sorts of backgrounds and we pride ourselves on growing diverse teams. That's what makes creating an inclusive culture all the more important. Even if you are just joining us for a Christmas stint, we'll welcome you as warmly as we do our guests.

4. The perks

Who doesn't love a perk? Well, at M&B, you'll have access to a long list of employee benefits. You'll have the opportunity to apply for a discounted gym membership and get early access to up to 30% off your paycheck, meaning extra cash to buy those last minute gifts. And a perk that definitely can't go unmentioned is the 33% discount on food and drink for you and five others. So you can consider your Christmas get-togethers sorted! And, if that doesn't spread the Christmas cheer, we don't know what will.

5. A job doesn't just have to be for Christmas

Now we know that some people might be looking for a seasonal job. But we reckon you might discover the many reasons to love a hospitality job and be tempted to stick around.

Tis the season to sparkle. So if you can dazzle the team, there's nothing to say that a Christmas job can't turn into a full-time role.

Unwrap our Christmas jobs at M&B

Nothing says the holidays like a trip to Toby Carvery for a Christmas feast or a festive cocktail at All Bar One. These are just two of the 13 brands at M&B, so you could say that you're spoilt for choice.

Take your pick! Check out our Christmas jobs and rock around the Christmas tree with us this year.
