General Manager - Edinburgh
We love great craft beer. We want everyone to be as passionate about it as we are – and our bars are at the heart of that mission. You’ll help us deliver an amazing beer and customer experience every shift so, because we expect great things from you, we give great things back.
HOP STOCK | We believe in sharing our success with our crew and have a unique Hop Stock benefit for our salaried team. That means you share in our success, and if we grow strongly, we win together.
OVERTIME | We pay overtime for any hours worked beyond your contracted hours to all salaried crew, because we know it’s right to reimburse you in full for any extra time you work for us.
PROFIT SHARE | Our BrewDog Bars now share 10% of their profits with our fantastic crew. We’re setting the bar high for the hospitality industry and giving you even more reasons to do an amazing job.
PENSION ENHANCEMENT | We increase our contributions to your pension up to 10% of your salary so together we can properly invest in your future. And, since the statutory amount all businesses pay is 3%, our decision to pay above that shows we’re taking your future seriously.
SAFE RIDE HOME | We want to make sure you get home safe after a hard shift. That’s why we contribute £5 to your pay-check to help you get home safely after midnight. This is open to all our bar crew.
4-WEEK SABBATICAL| After every 5 years here you will receive an additional 4 weeks off to spend doing whatever you want.
STAFF DISCOUNT | 25% off in bars, 30% off online and 50% off BrewDog Merch to fill up your fridge and your wardrobe* (*don’t put your hoody in the fridge though)
BEER TRAINING | We love beer and we want you to love beer too, so we’ll support you through the internationally-recognised Cicerone qualifications, so you can love it almost as much as we do.
AND A LOT MORE | Okay, deep breath… enhanced sick pay, healthcare, life assurance, high street retail discounts, employee assistance programmes, enhanced family friendly policies around maternity and paternity leave, additional holiday days per year, pawternity leave, DE+I and crew forum groups and beer samples at the end of some shifts.
We’re also the world’s first carbon negative beer business. We’re focused on making sure that we, and future generations, have a planet to brew great beer on. Our industry leading techniques help us create and deliver unique beer whilst doing our bit (and others’) for the environment.
