Excellent training, opportunities and benefits

Our brands are all household names, but it's our people who keep them that way. We are always looking for people who are genuine, confident and committed – and then we offer excellent training, development opportunities and benefits to make sure you stay around and develop your career within the Whitbread Group. 

What we do

We are the UK's largest hotel and restaurant company, with market-leading businesses in the budget hotel and restaurant sectors. We also own Costa Coffee, a hugely successful and growing business on the high street and other outlets.

We are developing our International profile for Premier Inn and Costa Coffee during the coming years with our continued expansion plans.

We employ over 45,000 people and serve 24 million customers every month in our numerous outlets worldwide.

If you join us, you could be working for one of our well-loved brands: Premier Inn, Beefeater Grill, Table Table, Brewers Fayre, Taybarns, Costa Coffee and hub by Premier Inn or in our Support Centre head office, based in Bedfordshire.


We offer highly competitive salaries and great benefits packages to recruit and retain the best people, coupled with training to support people with suitable career development.

At Whitbread we can offer you personal and professional development, as well as sound training in your chosen career. We’ll give you a structured welcome into our organisation to help you settle in quickly and then start your professional development straight away.

Graduate benefits

As we only recruit a small number of graduates each year we can guarantee that you’ll be noticed. You’ll not only get day-to-day support from your line manager, but also advice and support from your senior mentor, and all the management development we offer.

Unlike some graduate schemes, we give you a real role with real responsibility and accountability from day one, so you can make a strong contribution to our business success from the start.

Plus we offer a relaxed and open working environment, a fantastic company culture, and excellent benefits:

  • Competitive starting salary depending on your department and position
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • BUPA healthcare
  • A Whitbread Privilege Card (25% off all Whitbread brands)
  • Bonus scheme
  • Sharesave scheme (SAYE)
  • 25 days holiday

It’s a great time to join Whitbread

There's a real buzz around Whitbread right now. We’re bucking the trend and proving that in these times of ‘austerity’, our great value brands are the ones to watch.

We've been pushing forward with expansion plans for all of our brands, creating career opportunities all over the country. This is your chance to join a thriving business that offers superb career development potential and some very generous rewards.

What we are looking for

We're looking for customer-focused leaders who have experience of motivating and inspiring teams: people ready for their next move.

So, if you want to share in a future that's looking very bright, it's time to join the team who eat, sleep, and drink hospitality.
