Are you on the hunt for a part-time job that's not just any ol' gig, but one that brings excitement, and camaraderie? Well, look no further, than the world of pubs. But what makes them so blinking brilliant for those seeking a convenient part-time job? From flexibility to transferable skills, there’s a lot to love.

Delve into our top reasons why pub jobs for part-timers are the bee's knees!

A warm and welcoming atmosphere 

Whether you’re at a country pub like Vintage Inns, where you’ll be sure to find guests enjoying a drink stop with their dog, or at a Premium Country Pub with beautiful interiors in stunning locations, when you step into a pub you’ll instantly feel the cosy embrace of a vibrant and friendly environment. 

Pubs are the heartbeat of many communities, serving as gathering spots where people come together to unwind, share stories, and celebrate life's little triumphs. As a part-time pub employee, you'll be right at the heart of this buzzing atmosphere, spreading cheer and joy to all who walk through the door. Why not read about what it’s like to work at one of our 14 brands at M&B?

Flexibility that fits your schedule 

One of the top advantages of working part-time in a pub is the flexibility it offers. Whether you're a uni student juggling classes, a parent with childcare responsibilities, part-time working at pubs allows you to have more control over your schedule. 

When you join an M&B pub, you’ll also enjoy financial flexibility, with access to perks like Hastee which lets you access up to 30% off your earned pay within 24 hours of finishing your shift.

Develop in-demand skills 

Working in a pub isn't just about pouring pints (although that's a cool skill to have!). It's an opportunity to hone a wide range of transferable skills. From exceptional customer service and communication skills to time management, multitasking, and problem-solving abilities, you'll be polishing up your professional toolkit without even realising it. Plus, with a can-do attitude, you won’t need to worry if you have little experience, as there’s lots you can learn from your shift buddies.

Dive into diverse interactions 

Pubs are the melting pots of social interactions, bringing together people from all walks of life. As a pub employee, you'll meet fascinating characters, forge new friendships, and connect with individuals who'll broaden your horizons. Who knows, you might even stumble upon an intriguing story that becomes the inspiration for the next great novel or movie. You’ll be sure to have loads of tales to tell friends!

Perks and pints 

Last but certainly not least, let's talk about the perks! While your main motivation for a part-time gig might be the financial boost to another side-gig or flexibility around your schedule, pubs sweeten the deal with some exciting extras. Picture this: enjoying discounted food and drinks during your breaks – you’ll get an impressive 33% off food and drinks across all of our brands when you join us – soaking up the lively ambiance, and going to staff socials and events. It's like being part of an extended family that knows how to have a good time!

Are you ready to find part time jobs in pubs?

So, job seekers, if you're looking for a part-time job that doesn't feel like work, pubs are where it's at! Embrace the energetic atmosphere, build skills that'll impress future employers, and enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow pub enthusiasts. 

Get ready to be a part of a community that values good times, good company, and an occasional cheers-worthy celebration. Take a look at the latest part-time opportunities at M&B.
