Overview

General Manager
Marston’s is one of the UK’s largest and most beloved pub chains and today, we operate more than 1,300 pubs, bars and hotels. 

Now, we’re on the lookout for a great General Manager to take charge at The Coaching Halt and lead the team to success!

Have you got what it takes?
It’s true, being a Pub Manager is demanding but the people make it much more than just a job. Brimming with energy and ideas, you’ll add touches of your personality to your pub and think of new ways to delight and excite your customers. You’ll thrive off growing your business and have a ‘lead from the front’ mentality and passion for nurturing your team.

As a General Manager you’ll:

  • Care about finding, growing and engaging your team.
  • Be accountable for running all aspects of your pub.
  • Be passionate about doing the right thing for your staff and your customers.
  • Dream big and think differently about new ways to increase sales and growth.
  • Celebrate and create a buzz by sharing enjoyable experiences.

Are we right for you?
From cosy locals to pub-restaurants, our destination businesses serve up an award-winning selection of pub classics and innovative new dishes. What’s more, our impressive drinks portfolio combines well-known brands, like Estrella and Hobgoblin, with outstanding craft ales and beers. Add a dash of our unique Marston’s atmosphere and we have the ingredients to make every visit a fantastic experience for our customers. The same goes for our people and as one of our General Managers you’ll find a premium blend of challenge, security and career progression. And whenever you need support or guidance advice from your area manager, you’ll find their door is always open.

About the pub

The Coaching Halt is a beautiful premium food business located on Maidenbower Business Park in Crawley.

This is a real showstopper of a pub, with lots of character and charm, a large bar and restaurant area and a stunning outdoor patio area with covered seating as well as a play area!
 
This site is conveniently located just off junction 10A of the M53, providing great links to Gatwick as well as boasting a varied client base of both business and family guests in the local area.
 
The Coaching Halt currently trades at around £19,000 per week in net sales and has huge potential for an experienced operator to drive sales through building upon the reputation within the local community. 
 
We are looking for an engaging General Manager to showcase their passion for people and lead the team to success.
 
Managers accommodation is available in the form of a 3 bedroom modern flat located above the pub.
 

What you get

At Marston’s we’re one big family. We put our people first, which is why we offer real benefits including:

  • Potential to earn bonus
  • Access to a pension scheme
  • On-site accommodation
  • Private healthcare
  • Award winning training and development

A day in the life...

Hi, I'm Lewis

My induction with Marston’s was tailored so I visited sites that were going to be similar to mine.

I spent time with a ‘buddy’ manager from a nearby site – he was a great guy and really honest and talked to me about the culture of Marston’s as well as the day to day running of the business.

My Area Manager, Nigel was really supportive and if he didn’t have the answer he would pull on his network of experts to support.

Dedicated support

My Area Manager, Nigel was really supportive and if he didn’t have the answer he would pull on his network of experts to support, including the recruitment and training teams.

Opening a new build pub

On the opening day there was so many people coming in but I wasn’t worried as I had every type of support there to help it run smoothly. The whole board came down for a meal at my pub, the CEO and the Managing Director are really nice people and down to earth too!
