At Yates we're looking to break the mould when it comes to who we recruit for our team. You do not necessarily need any experience but you do need to have a great personality and the right work ethic, which ensures our customers receive nothing but great service and an enjoyable experience. The great thing about Yates is you get to be involved in everything from early morning breakfast, to the lunch time visitors enjoying food off our extensive menu, to shoppers popping in for a coffee and to the those late night drinkers looking to dance the night away.
You do need to be able to demonstrate that you are a great team player as well as being able to work unsupervised during busy times and keen to learn. Joining our team as a Bar Team Member with Stonegate Pub Company will give you the opportunity to develop important skills such as:
Communication skills by listening to customers, engaging and building a rapport with them and by dealing with challenging people and situations
Experience of working under pressure including managing a workload at busy times
Developing an understanding of customer needs and using this knowledge to improve the business, for example, passing on or responding to customers’ requests and suggestions
Building a commercial awareness and the experience of working in a commercial environment
Working with regulations such as health and safety and licensing laws, and making sure that colleagues understand them
In return, we can offer you an award-winning development programme with access to apprenticeships along with 25% discount on food and drink for you and your entire party in all our pubs and venues. We have an employee benefits scheme which gives you discounts across hundreds of brands and services and a contributory pension scheme.
