“I joined Shepherd Neame at the age of 16 as a waitress, and have been with them ever since, working my way up to my current role as Deputy Manager. The company has been great in encouraging my career development, providing training courses and offering support at every stage.”

Deputy and Assistant Managers

As Deputy or Assistant Manager, you offer crucial support with all aspects of the business. And if your ambition is to become a General Manager, we can provide the training and development to support you in achieving that goal.


We currently employ around 1,500 staff across our retail estate, which comprises more than 70 busy outlets across London and the South East, serving over a million meals each year. Our ever growing portfolio ranges from characterful pubs in London’s West End and The City, to large seafront hotels in Kent, with a diverse range of sites in between. During the past year we have invested £4.5 million to improve the look and feel of our retail estate, and continue to identify and introduce initiatives to develop our offer and enhance the customer experience.

We are looking for new Deputy and Assistant Managers to join our successful team. You will support the General Manager with all aspects of the successful management of the business, and help motivate and inspire your team to serve customers with excellence, energy and enthusiasm. In return, we offer great employee benefits, including competitive salaries, a share incentive plan and staff discount scheme. We want to attract, retain and develop the very best people, so we will provide the training and development to support and inspire you to achieve your goals.

“I joined the Royal Hotel four years ago as a housekeeper, and was promoted to supervisor, then junior assistant manager, before being appointed deputy manager a year and a half ago. I have been really impressed by the training and development opportunities offered by Shepherd Neame.”
