Your destination started over 200 years ago, with the vision of a certain Benjamin Green.

In 1799, Benjamin moved to Bury St Edmunds to establish his own brewing business - and laid the foundations of the company now known as Greene King. In 1806, he entered into a significant partnership with William Buck, an elderly yarn-maker, to acquire the 100-year old Wright’s Brewery in Westgate where they began brewing together. The Greene King company headquarters remain at Wright’s Brewery to this day.

Today, Greene King plc is one of UK’s leading pub retailers and brewers – and a listed FTSE 250 company. We have three main business units: Brewing Company, responsible for the brewing and distribution of our renowned cask ale brands, including Greene King IPA, Abbot Ale, Old Speckled Hen and Ruddles County; Managed Pubs for our managed houses; and Pub Partners which includes all of our tenanted and leased businesses. In total Greene King has over 3,000 managed and tenanted pubs and hotels around the UK – ranging from city centre pubs to traditional coaching inns.

Of course, we haven’t become this successful without paying a lot of attention to the people we recruit. We need to employ the best to be the best – so we aim to provide industry leading training, salaries, bonuses, benefits and career prospects. More than that, we look to make the most of a certain magic that everyone at Greene King shares: the belief in doing the best for our customers. At Greene King we believe in building great working relationships and providing outstanding support based on our seven values; Customer Focus, Results, Execution, Honesty, Courage, People Management and Respect. Join us on our 3-year Destination Pubs Graduate Programme and you’ll see that these values run through everything we do.
