We are recruiting Trainee Operators

If you are interested in applying to become a Trainee Operator or if you have a wealth of experience already, we have a fast-track programme called Operator Designate that Amberizes your skill set in preparation for your next venture please see the Trainee and Operator Designate Prospectus PDF here.

How it Works

You will need to set up your own limited company to take the operator agreement for your pub. Aside from staffing costs, all other associated running costs and investment related to your pub are paid by Amber Taverns. You will however be responsible for the council tax and tv licence for the private accommodation.

We want you to grow your business, the more your pub takes the better we both do, it really is a “win win”.

All our sites are all refurbished to a high standard and operate primarily as wet led, no food. You must hold a personal licence and have relevant experience. Successful candidates will be given the opportunity to drive the business and identify new opportunities.

Amber Taverns uses an operator agreement which offers you the opportunity of a great business with the support and back up of a successful company.

You will operate a well invested pub, have the ability to sell leading brands at competitive prices, offer a full commercial Sky and BT Sport package plus regular visits and support from your Area Manager.

Good quality live in accommodation is also provided – all we ask in return is your hard work, commitment and drive to be a great mine host.
