Publican Awards 2014

We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded "Highly Commended" in the category of Best Pub Employer (51+ sites) in the 2014 Publican Awards, which took place last night at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. More than 1,400 people attended the event, which was hosted by comedian John Bishop.

Getting to the final stage of the Awards was a huge achievement. The judging process involved submitting a paper entry and evidence box for review by a panel of industry experts. We then received a visit from one of the judges, who explored with the management team the achievements highlighted in our award entry and visited a number of our pubs too. The final stage in the process was a panel interview with senior representatives from Marston's and a team of industry experts, including City analysts, journalists, pub guide editors, top industry consultants and industry body chiefs.

Cheryl Evans HR Director Pub Operations said "Achieving highly commended in the Best Pub Employer category is a great reflection of the work that takes place across the HR and Operations team. With more than 3,000 jobs being created across the company in the next two years the continued recruitment of great people, development of new and existing talent and recognition remains high on our priority list".
