We’re the UK’s biggest hospitality company, employing around 50,000 people and serving around 27 million UK customers every month across our 3,000+ hotels, coffee shops and restaurants. We may have grown to become the UK’s largest hotel and restaurant group, but we’ve never forgotten where it all started. Samuel Whitbread’s founding spirit was to put our people first, focus on the customer and recognise that progress comes from innovative thinking. These are the values we continue to live by today.
The past five years have seen huge growth in our business. We’ve added over 130 hotels, nearly 100 restaurants and more than 1,500 coffee shops – creating an outstanding 15,000 UK jobs in the process. By 2020, our goal is to achieve global system sales of around £2.5bn for Costa, and to increase the number of Premier Inn UK rooms to an incredible 85,000. All while creating around 3,000 UK jobs a year and continuing to expand our presence worldwide.
From plump pillows to juicy steaks and frothy cappuccinos, we’re proud of our brands and everything they have to offer. Behind the brands though is a technology function that helps to create our leading customer experience, optimise our organisation and create an environment for our staff to thrive. We’ve invested £150m in IT over the last 3 years to provide the foundations for capabilities to help us win in our markets both in the UK and internationally. We want talented, collaborative and business focussed people to join our IT function as we create a capability that can truly differentiate the Whitbread experience.
Trend-bucking growth. An increasingly global profile. The huge popularity of our brands. Make no mistake, our business is thriving, and with further expansion planned for all our brands, the future promises to be even more exciting. As we continue to develop and grow, this is your chance to be part of our story.
