Pret a Manger
Our people make all the difference, they are the secret to our success. At Pret we invest in, train and develop our people. Twice a year we throw a massive party. Some have passed into Pret legend. Everyone at Pret is invited.
We are currently looking for passionate part time and full time team members to fill a number of vacancies in Pret shops across the UK.
PRET’S SECRET INGREDIENTS
Our people are the key to our success. We give each team member the skills and confidence they need to succeed, along with opportunities to develop into more challenging roles. This way, our teams have a healthy pool of successors (we call them plan Bs) waiting in the wings.
TEAM MEMBER TO ASTRONAUT
From Team Member to Leader, Manager and beyond, the Pret Academy has structured learning pathways that provide clear and practical training. We offer over 50 different learning events and ran over 500 courses last year in the UK.
MASTERMINDS IN THE MAKING
Every person is welcomed to Pret with a thorough induction and training supported by workbooks, elearning initiatives and classroom training. There’s no standing still. No one gets bored. Our Team Members grow into Leaders. Leaders grow into Managers. Our ‘New to Pret Manager in Training’ programme lasts 16 weeks, but it doesn’t end there. You continue learning well after the official course ends.
Our Academy Team have created a number of leadership programmes for those who work in both shops and Hudson’s Place to enable Pret people to enhance their skills and knowledge to fulfil their potential.
SCHOOL LEAVERS PROGRAMME
Our School Leavers Programme provides a fantastic opportunity to start climbing the career ladder straight away. Based in a Pret shop, we’ll support and develop you providing you with the skills you need to be a success in the world of work. 80% of our Managers started as Team Members, so who knows what you can achieve.
PRET'S APPRENTICESHIP SCHEME
If someone doesn't have a fixed address, it’s very difficult to get a bank account and if you have no bank account, it is difficult to get a job. If, in the past, a person has been in prison and has a criminal record, it exaggerates the problem. It is a cruel catch-22 situation.
In an effort to help break this cycle, we set up an apprenticeship scheme and named it after a dear colleague, Simon Hargraves. We work with apprentices who have lived on the streets or have a criminal record – people who are finding it hard, for whatever reason, to catch a break. We let them start with a clean slate.
