Graduate training scheme launched for brewers
Thursday, 11 October 2007
Brewer Greene King has launched what it claims to be the first ever graduate training scheme for aspiring brewers.
The Pub Retail Management scheme involves graduates undertaking a 48-week long industrial placement in preparation for filling a deputy manager position at one of the company's 750 pubs around the UK.
Two students began the pilot scheme last month and the next round of graduate recruitment will begin in November.
Greene King industrial training project manager Terri Hardy said: "We want to encourage graduates to see the pub industry as an inspiring and viable career choice.
"By the age of 25 our graduates could be running an exciting business with a sizeable team, hundreds of loyal customers and a £1 million turnover," she added.
The two graduates taking part in the pilot scheme are currently undertaking their career induction at pubs in London and Cheltenham.
