Greene King Puts the Spotlight on Festive Hiring with Innovative Careers Site in Partnership with SmartRecruiters

Greene King, the country’s leading pub company and brewer is enhancing its holiday hiring efforts with the launch of its new festive careers site. The site has been designed to help Greene King meet the demands of the holiday period and will see 580 vacancies go live throughout the country, open to candidates from all backgrounds and experience levels.

The Greene King jobs site recently secured the prestigious Happy Dance Award for “Best New Careers Site” at the 2023 Tiara Talent Acquisition Awards. The recognition stems from the site’s successful implementation of multiple sub-brands whilst allowing individual Talent Acquisition (TA) teams access to update their own content, clearly highlighting the site’s impressive personalisation, flexibility, and interactivity.


Lindsey Stone, Greene King’s Head of Talent Attraction & Resourcing, emphasised the importance of this initiative: “It goes without saying that the Christmas period is one of the busiest times of year for us, and with that, it is one of the busiest times of year for hiring. Greene King manages 1,600 pubs across the country and it. is essential that we have a careers site that is easily accessible and manageable by individual talent acquisition teams.”

“The new Greene King careers site doesn’t only serve as a gateway for potential employees, it also offers jobseekers a unique glimpse into life at Greene King – showcasing authentic stories from team members that reflect the company’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.

“Our mission is to be a trailblazer when it comes to inclusion in the hospitality industry. We want to embody this commitment to everyday inclusion through our new site. We chose to partner with SmartRecruiters to build a site that mirrors our brand values and culture and brings those aspects to life by delivering an excellent candidate experience,” Stone added.


Rob Symons, EVP Strategic Partnerships at SmartRecruiters, highlighted the challenges faced by the UK’s hospitality sector in recent years, particularly concerning staff shortages. “For Greene King, optimising the candidate experience was crucial to attract and hire the best talent. We are excited to be a part of this transformative journey,” Symons added.
