Frequently Asked Questions

There are two key things about our service that are most important. Firstly, we aim to confirm your job before you leave home, that way you know you’ve got work upon arrival. Secondly, all of our jobs come with accommodation, so you’ve got a place to live as well. A big part of all of this is that our program gives you piece of mind. Arriving in the UK without a job can be very costly – with our help, we get you into a job and earning money fast – which means less stress, less time without work, and less money spent trying to get settled in a new and confusing country.
Once we’ve got everything we need for your employment file, we send it off to our UK office and they will look for a job for you based on the start work date that you have given us. The pub managers in our network advise us of the vacancies they have and we send them a selection of candidates to choose from. Once you are selected, we will send a job offer to you which will have a summary of all the basic terms and conditions of your employment – including the wages, the hours, the type of accommodation, the food policy (many of the pubs have a free or subsidised meal as part of the package), uniforms (if you need one, it’s usually just black trousers or black skirt, black shoes etc), the location, and the website. All of this information is provided directly by the managers of the pubs. Once you have reviewed the offer and if you’re happy with it – let us know. At that point, we will advise the manager and the job is yours!
Yes! We place many couples & groups of friends into great pub jobs. When placing more than one person, however, it does become increasingly important to be flexible on the location of your job placement.
