Careers at Whitbread PLC

We’re the UK’s biggest hospitality company and the owners of much-loved brands, including Premier Inn, hub by Premier Inn, Costa Coffee, Brewers Fayre, Beefeater Grill and Table Table.

We fundamentally believe that our success is down to our 50,000 motivated and highly engaged team members. They deliver outstanding service to over 28 million customers every month across our UK hotels, coffee shops and restaurants.

Over the past five years we have created 15,000 UK jobs by adding over 130 more hotels, nearly 100 restaurants and more than 1,500 coffee shops. We now have over 2,000 outlets in the UK and are rapidly increasing our international presence.

Our 2020 milestones are to increase the number of Premier Inn UK rooms to around 85,000 and to achieve global system sales of around £2.5 bn for Costa. With this we plan to create around 3,000 UK jobs each year, and as we expand our global presence, we’ll also create thousands more jobs overseas too.


We will grow legendary brands by building a strong customer heartbeat and innovating to stay ahead. Our winning teams make everyday experiences special for customers, so they come back time and again, driving profitable growth.


Our values underpin everything we do at Whitbread, across all our brands:

• Genuine - we really care about customers

• Confident - we strive to be the best at what we do

• Committed - we work hard for each other

Whilst our core business has changed over the years, we remain true to Samuel Whitbread’s founding spirit to put our people first, focus on the customer, and recognise that progress comes from innovative thinking.
