Work at the Brewery

Why work with us

As an independent family brewer and pub operator, we rely on a team of skilled employees to produce, market and serve our award-winning beers.

We are passionate about brewing, having won more than 40 international awards for our beer quality in the last five years. Our team of experienced, highly qualified brewers, production staff and lab technicians oversee the production of our popular range of Kentish ales, including Spitfire, Bishops Finger, Master Brew and the Whitstable Bay Collection, along with speciality lagers under license, such as Asahi and Samuel Adams Boston Lager.

In addition to brewing, we have a strong team working behind the scenes at the brewery, in finance, sales, marketing, IT and customer services. Click here to find out more about some of our key employees and how they contribute to the business.

We have an extensive team of pub managers and bar staff based at our award-winning portfolio of pubs and hotels across London and the South East. In 2013 we were named Best Managed Pub Company in the Publican Awards, and we were finalists in the Best Accommodation category of this year’s awards. Whether you are starting out in the hospitality industry, or looking for a senior role, Shepherd Neame can offer a role to suit.

Budding or experienced chefs can also benefit from a career with Shepherd Neame. We have employed some of the country’s top chefs to work across our estate, which serves more than a billion meals each year. Our aim is to offer delicious dishes created using fresh, locally sourced produce, for a reasonable price, and we were delighted to win Best Food Offer in the 2012 Publican Awards. Our dedicated development chef offers a wealth of advice and support for staff, and chef development days and training courses are held regularly.

Shepherd Neame is a great place to work, and as more than half of our employees have been with us for over 10 years, they appear to agree with us. We publish current vacancies on the website, and you can also join our mailing list to find out about the new positions available.
