  • COUNTING HOUSE

The Counting House is a grand old pub in London's financial sector - expect big crowds of city professionals for post-work drinks in the week. At weekends, the pub is a popular venue for wedding celebrations.

  • Enjoy the fast-paced fun of pub life
  • Learn new skills to enhance your career with our industry leading training and development.
  • Belong to a supportive, close-knit team
  • Benefit from a competitive salary and great discounts including 20% in all Fuller's pubs and heavily discounted stays in our hotels.
  • We will reward you every time you introduce a friend to the Fuller’s family who successfully passes their probation.
  • A great benefits package including enhanced sick pay.

Could you write the next chapter of our success story?

As our General Manager, you’ll be the driving force behind the success of the pub.

Ultimately, the smiles on faces, the return visits and the positive reviews are all down to you - making this one of the most rewarding jobs in the hospitality business.

  • Run a great pub, backed by the famous Fuller’s brewery
  • Enjoy the freedom to make the pub your own

For any General Manager, Fuller’s is a special company to work for. You’ll get lots of help and support from Head Office when you need it, but also plenty of encouragement to put your own spin on the pub.

You can take plenty of pride in the role too, knowing that Fuller’s ales, food and service has a reputation as some of the very best in the business.

You’ll need to be commercially minded, making the right decisions to keep customers pouring through the doors. Importantly though, you’ll be a people-person too - mindful that to many, you’re still a good old-fashioned ‘Landlord’.

And of course, you’ll have a team to look after. So we’re looking for somebody with true leadership qualities – able to keep both the customers and the team smiling.

  • You’ll be great at leading a team
  • You should be highly motivated and commercially focused
  • You’ll need to be a great communicator
  • You should have previous management experience

Please understand that we will need proof of your right to work in the UK.

One of our most iconic pubs in the City of London, the Counting House is about to undergo a major expansion with the addition of 15 ‘Beautiful Bedrooms’. Part of the Ale & Pie collection, the venue is famous for great food, drink and atmosphere in beautiful surroundings.

This incredible business already holds its own in the City. Originally built in 1893 to home Prescott’s Bank, the pub boasts a stunning bar with all original features and high ceilings. Additional dining space can be found on the first floor offering a great view of the bar area from the balconies. With numerous private hire event spaces, the venue is equipped to accommodate meetings and events of all sizes and is becoming an increasingly popular wedding venue which will be further supported by the addition of the hotel rooms. The hotel rooms themselves will be of exceptional quality and amongst the most beautiful in the London Fuller’s estate.

This is a very complex business which already does a high volume of trade Monday to Friday. Once the business reopens in mid-January 2019, the Counting House will trade 7 days per week with weekend trade driven by the accommodation and a strong marketing strategy. The successful candidate here will have experience in a high volume business and a proven track record of developing and delivering a robust sales and marketing strategy. Previous exposure to hotel rooms, events and a major project would be beneficial.
