Team careers

Do you find yourself making your customers smile all the time? If so, that’s what we are looking for at SSP. Our successful team members are determined to get things done to the best they can; be it assisting customers or colleagues.

Roles available...

Team Members

As a team member, you could be greeting our customers at any time of the day: perhaps first thing in the morning – giving our customers a hearty breakfast and a barista-standard coffee. Or maybe even later on at night where our customers are looking for a bite to eat to enjoy on their way home.

Either way, it will be your job to make sure all our product is served to a high standard, the unit is presentable and our customers go away smiling. And there’s no need to worry about food! depending on how long your shift is, we will provide you with a meal from one of our brands.

It is your personality that will make the difference in enhancing our customer experience. And if you ever need any support, you won’t be working alone. You will be part of a team who can help you whenever you need it.

We also offer a number of learning and development programmes that not only help you move up the ladder within SSP, but are nationally recognised across the hospitality industry.

Team Leaders

Like our team members, our team leaders are dedicated to making every customer's experience the best it can be. Whether you're serving up the perfect burger or making sure no one is kept waiting, you'll make sure our good reputation for customer service stays that way.

You'll be an example for your team; a leader and role-model with a hands-on approach and sense of responsibility that means no job goes unfinished. You will lead the shift, ensuring that the unit and brand standards are met consistently. Your drive, determination, people management skills and excellent customer focus will be invaluable to your manager.

We look for energetic and driven individuals when recruiting for team leader: people who aren’t afraid of a challenge, who are ambitious and crave the opportunity to work and grow within a vibrant and successful business. As with all of our roles, you will be given the opportunity to take part in learning and development programmes that allow you to work towards nationally recognised qualifications, as well as potential promotion into management.

A day in the life...

We are the experts, but don’t just take our word for it!
