When you think of a job in hospitality what are the first thoughts that pop into your head? Serving up tasty dishes? Pouring drinks behind a bar? Waiting on tables? We thought so! And you wouldn’t be wrong... There are however, many more job opportunities available than first come to mind.

Behind our amazing teams working face to face with guests in our bars and restaurants, we have a team of passionate people working hard behind the scenes to support the entire business and keep operations running tip-top. From HR, marketing and property, to IT and finance, there’s a whole host of exciting opportunities! So many so, that in the last 12 months, we could’ve filled two London double-decker buses with the 274 new corporate hires we’ve made!

So, if you like the idea of mixing your expertise with a passion for hospitality, a job at M&B’s headquarters may be the perfect fit for you!

Read on to see why now is an exciting time to bring your skills into the home of hospitality or jump straight to our chats with Kelly and Kelvin to hear about their experiences.

What are the benefits of working at M&B HQ?

The perks

Our people are our priority. We want our teams to feel inspired, work hard and be rewarded. That’s why we offer all our teams a range of benefits covering finances, health and opportunities to make unforgettable memories.

Including a 33% discount off food and drink in all of our brands (prepare to become the family favourite), the opportunity to apply for free shares and much much more. The extensive benefits package available to our teams makes being part of the M&B family that little bit sweeter.

Opportunities to develop

As one of the largest pub and restaurant brands in the UK we are committed to being a safe and secure employer that provides stability for all our teams, and ample opportunities to develop. We make sure you get to steer your career in the direction that's right for you, giving you the support you need at every stage. If you’ve got a can-do attitude and positive work ethic, the possibilities for what you can achieve are endless.

Did you know, 60% of the corporate hires we’ve made in the last 12 months have been internal moves or promotions? That’s 163 employees moving into new roles with great opportunities!

You may find a rewarding role working in our Human Resources team supporting our biggest asset - our people- or you may prefer working in the IT team where you can help lay the foundations of our digital infrastructure that keeps everything and everyone connected. It’s all big and exciting stuff! The great thing is, a Mitchells & Butlers, your first role does not have to be your last, whether you want to progress in your field, or transfer your skills to a different department.

From jobs including everything from a Talent Acquisition Specialist to a Marketing Manager and a Digital Product Manager to a Finance Manager, the landscape of opportunity that our corporate business provides is immense. You don’t have to take our word for it though, here’s what our people have to say about working at M&B HQ:

Why Kelly stayed at M&B to progress her career

Kelly was recently appointed to the role of Executive Personal Assistant to Divisional Directors and the Group Property Director. We spoke to her about her time at M&B and how her career has progressed.

‘I have always felt supported by M&B throughout my career. I started seven years ago as Property Admin Assistant and worked my way up to where I am today. I’ve had quarterly personal development plan meetings from the very start, where I’ve been able to outline my ambition and goals and with each meeting I’ve been pushed towards my future.

Not only has my line manager’s encouragement been invaluable, but support from wider departments, colleagues, and free online training has really helped to get me to where I am. I have always felt that M&B have that ‘family feel’ where your thoughts and opinions are valued and actioned. Plus, I am very fortunate to have made my lifelong friends in this company.

To progress your career internally, be clear about your ambitions and you’ll be supported all the way. If there is another team you’re interested in working within, don’t feel embarrassed to ask for a meeting and get to know what they do. Not only will you hear about future positions, but you’ll also get to know more people within the corporate team! Networking in such a large company can be key to a successful future.’

Accelerate your career as a new starter like Kelvin

Kelvin, joined as a Solutions Architect in November 2021 and was recently promoted to a Digital Architect.

‘I joined M&B with a strong personal affinity to quite a few of our brands having wined and dined at nearly all of them over the years. The recruitment market was (and still is) hot, but I knew M&B had the size and scale to make the forward-leaning digital investments that the hospitality industry needed. I reached out to a colleague I used to work with, and she spoke so highly of the environment here I applied immediately.

I've worked in software and architecture leadership roles across a plethora of industries including logistics, gambling and edtech. Whilst this is a nice mix of industries (and challenges!) I've always specialised in the customer experience which made me a great fit for hospitality and the opportunities that M&B has as we come out of the pandemic.

Onboarding and working in a hybrid environment are the new normal, but it was my first time. Luckily everyone at RSC and beyond is incredibly supportive of new starters. I highly recommend applying if you are thinking about it.’

Find an opportunity for you at M&B HQ

We know that when looking for your next job, it’s all about finding a company that has similar principles. Our values give our teams a sense of belonging, because there’s a place for everyone at M&B.
