The Bath Pub Company are recruiting kitchen porters to join our busy kitchens across our four pubs.

About the company

The Bath Pub Company operates four premium foodie pubs in and around Bath. Our aim is simple; to run great pubs that people love to visit, and build a company that people love to work for. 

Whilst each of the pubs is owned by one company, we’re a million miles from a branded chain. Each of our four pubs has its own distinct personality and we encourage each of our managers to run the pubs as their own. Each chef creates his own menu according to what will work best for each pub, it’s about as far away from one size fits all as you can get. Four different pubs, each with their own character, but with common values of quality & passion shared by all.

We are a young, growing business and we’re always on the lookout for talented people to join our team. Job opportunities arise with us all the time and as long as you have passion, bags of energy and enthusiasm we can usually find a position.

Perhaps more than most businesses, hospitability is a people business. That’s why we go to great lengths to make sure we only take on board people who share our passion for great food & service.

If you’re successful, you’ll get the chance to work alongside some of the brightest and most talented people in hospitality. We’ll look for opportunities to help you grow and develop professionally and you’ll have the chance to be part of something special.

We are an equal opportunities employer and don’t discriminate in terms of age, gender, race or sexuality – for us variety is the spice of life! We do, however, discriminate in terms of passion and desire, that’s why you won’t find anyone working for us who’s simply there to pay the bills. You spend a lot of your life at work and we firmly believe you should only be here because you love your job.
