Work with us, not for us

The Pub People Company want you to work alongside us, working together, for the greater success of your pub business.

You will invoice us for a percentage of the weekly sales as your income and from that pay for your staff rota, council tax, some insurances and contributions towards sales driving activity. All other costs are born by the Company, including all utilities for the whole building.

You will lodge a fully refundable bond with us , as you would when renting a house. This protects the Company against any damages or theft. The bonds start from £500 and are held in an individual Nat West account in both our names

As you progress we will discuss other incentives with you that may be food, drink or fruit machine related.

Who can run a pub?

The Pub People Company prides itself on retaining licensees for many years and progressing licensees from small pubs to larger ones.

We are always looking to recruit people with enthusiasm and a passion for excellent service and standards. Some experience in the hospitality industry would be advantageous, but a bright personality and a willingness to learn is just as important.

Hard but rewarding

Running a pub is a challenging job… Every one of your customers will think they can do it better!

You can expect a strong and close relationship with your Business Development Manager and the operations and administration support teams.

At The Pub People Company, we want the licensees to be able to focus on the customer. We want you to give them the service and quality they demand. We will question you on the pub, beer, and food standards to ensure you make your pub the best in the area.

We have more than 30 years experience, operating pubs with self employed licensees and many have been with us at the same or various pubs for over 10 years.

We'll be with you every sip of the way!

Our culture is one of support, but demanding. We will expect you to manage the business professionally and profitably.

You will have access to excellent business, marketing, property and catering support but you must show initiative, drive, and commitment to bring activity to life whilst achieving excellent standards within the pub.

We manage the pub costs efficiently and will expect you to do the same.

The pub market is competitive and we will support you with the tools to make your pub stand out in your local market place, whether that is drinks range, food offer or creative sales driving activity. We want your pub to be an individual local star not part of a branded operation.
