To run a pub with Punch, you don’t need to have any special qualifications at the outset or have experience of running – or even working in – a pub. While previous pub or hospitality experience is certainly useful, we’ll take care of the training from day one and ensure you’re fully prepared before you open your doors to customers. And from there, we’ll support you every step of the way.
There are a few attributes you’ll need to bring to the table. For any successful career in hospitality, you’ll need to be able to work as part of a team. And if you want to run a pub, you’ll need to be confident motivating and inspiring your own team.
You’ll also be comfortable communicating with people from all walks of life. The great thing about pubs is that everyone is welcome and looked after with empathy and commitment. As soon as a customer walks through your doors, they’re your guest. They’ve come for the experience, and it’s your job to ensure that their expectations are met – or exceeded!
That’s why the most important skill you’ll need is a passion for pubs and for providing guests with unforgettable experiences! If you can do that, then you’ll see why this is the best job in the world. Afterall, how can an industry that’s all about fun, friends and family, and food and drink not be!
Kick-start your hospitality career
If this sounds like you, then kick-starting your hospitality career with Punch could be the perfect opportunity.
You’ll build transferable skills and gain experience in running your own business that will set you up for a bright future, wherever it takes you (but we’re pretty sure you’ll want to stick around).
One of the key skills you’ll develop with Punch is the ability to run your own business effectively and, ultimately, although you’ll receive plenty of guidance and support, you’ll learn how to be your own boss.
You’ll be managing your own team of staff, developing commercial awareness and business planning skills, and looking after your own finances, licencing, risk assessments and so on. It’s crucial that you’re prepared to be consistent, committed and flexible. But if you are, you’ll be rewarded with a job – and a lifestyle – that’s incredibly varied and rewarding.
Working in hospitality can open up a world of possibilities and starting or growing your career with Punch will ensure you get all the training and support you need to make your hospitality dreams a reality.
