What makes us different?
Our people are what makes us successful. Whether you're looking for a career or a job to fit around your life commitments, we aim to provide all our people with a great place to work, where you will feel valued and have the opportunity to fulfil your potential.
What makes Greggs so special is our culture; the way we are, the way we behave, and the way we support each other. We call it 'being Greggs'. It means being friendly, inclusive, honest, respectful, hard-working and appreciative.
Develop your career with us
At Greggs we provide great learning and development opportunities. Wherever you work, we give you everything you need to do a brilliant job.
Beyond induction, we continue to be here for your development through on-the-job learning, operational training and career development programmes. These are tailored to suit your individual goals to help you be ready for future career opportunities.
I joined Greggs as a Senior Team Member and realised it was a business that could offer me a career. I quickly progressed and was selected to attend the Future Shop Leaders programme which gave me the knowledge and skills I needed to become a Shop Manager. I took advantage of the Aspiring Leaders programme which is designed for people wanting to progress their career and recently I became an Area Manager.

Focusing on the future
Here at Greggs, we have a strong sense of responsibility towards our people, customers, suppliers and the communities we serve.
We have always been committed to doing the right thing over the years, because we recognise that businesses should stand for more than just profit. In order to make the world a better place, more recently we've consolidated our efforts to create a strategic pathway to ensure we have a positive impact on the world around us. We do this by focusing on three key pillars: Greggs communities, the planet and the way we approach business.
In February 2021, we formalised the route we are taking to contribute to a better tomorrow when we launched The Greggs Pledge. Within our pledge, we set out 10 commitments aimed directly at helping people, protecting the planet and working with our partners and suppliers to make the world a better place by 2025.
Each year we share the steps we've taken in an annual pledge progress report. This keeps us on track and accountable while on this important journey and recognises our dedicated teams for their hard work on delivering our Breakfast Clubs, Greggs Outlets and building on our delicious menu to offer a wider range of balanced choices.
With the Greggs Pledge you can clearly see the areas that Greggs are focused on improving to help the environment, as well as our own local communities. It gives me a huge sense of pride that the company isn’t just focused on profits.
