Our recognition, once again, as one of the UK’s top employers is due to many contributing and positive factors, encompassing our reputation for excellent working conditions.
As a company, we are committed to offering each and every staff member the best opportunity to succeed and grow within the company – which includes studying for qualifications and apprenticeships.
In 2019, a total of 94 Wetherspoon employees gained a qualification while in our employ.

The class of 2018/19 saw 78 people gain a professional diploma in leisure retail management.
Sixteen of our pub- and head office-based employees, for the first time, gained a BA (Hons) degree in business management in practice.
Since we launched the diploma course in 2009, in partnership with Leeds Beckett University, we are proud that 361 Wetherspoon employees have graduated, having studied alongside their job with us.
Our apprenticeship programme, which complements our internal award-winning training, also offers individuals real and clear career prospects with Wetherspoon.
Launched in 2017, our nationally recognised apprenticeship programme is available from associate level through to pub manager and beyond, with the opportunity of gaining qualifications along the way.
Since 2017, we have had more than 300 employees successfully complete an apprenticeship and more than 600 employees achieve their functional skills in maths or English – a GCSE equivalent which employees can complete if they did not previously hold GCSEs in these core subjects.
With various apprenticeship opportunities offered nationwide, including Level 2 Hospitality Team Member and Level 4 Hospitality Manager, there are career paths available.
