      Easy Interview


      Really chilled out, wasn’t mechanical and didn’t feel forced. Best interview experience I’ve had. I’m normally very nervous but the deputy manager really put me at ease and I got the job which is rare as I normally get too nervous to answer the questions well. I’ve heard great things about the team at premier and have my first day soon

      My interests and goals ect

    💜 Thank you. It’s been said a lot over the past 18 months, but this one goes out to the Number 1 team in the #Hospitality industry, responsible for helping stand our business back up in challenging circumstances! So, in recognition of the heroic efforts of our teams, we announced a pay increase for our hourly-paid team members. The memory makers, guest wow-ers, meal creators and most importantly the heart and soul of our business. Pay increases will differ by role and department, with minimum pay rates set to increase by over 5%, and 30,000 of our people eligible for the rise. All our roles will now pay above the National Minimum Wage, and above the National Living Wage. 🗣️ Our CEO Alison Brittain said: “A huge thank you from me for everything you all do. I’m continually impressed by your commitment, camaraderie, and care for one another and what we stand for. Whatever comes our way, whatever challenges we face, and whatever success we gain – we make it together. That’s why you are at the heart of our business, and that’s why together, we are a winning team.”
