About Greggs

Our vision is to make great tasting, freshly prepared food accessible to everyone, through the hard work and dedication of the amazing colleagues that we employ across the business.

Our people are what makes our business successful and we aim to provide them with a great place to work, where they feel valued and have the opportunity to fulfil their potential.  

We are one team with a shared goal to make Greggs a success and we pride ourselves on our welcoming and inclusive culture. We want to have a positive impact on the world around us and dedicate our efforts to three main areas: the communities we serve, the planet and our approach to business.  

Greggs is for everyone

At Greggs, we pride ourselves on our culture, creating an environment which is inclusive. We want everyone to feel welcome and to be able to be themselves at work, whatever their background, preferences or beliefs. We recognise that difference is good.​

We understand that diversity makes our business stronger, it makes us a more welcoming place. If our colleagues are representative of the communities Greggs serve, we can better understand our customers and make sure they have a great experience when they shop with us.​

We don’t believe it’s enough just to say we’re a company for everyone, we like to show it too.

Our colleague networks

Our three colleague networks provide a brilliant opportunity for colleagues from minority groups and their allies, to get together and share their own personal experiences, offer feedback on the way we do things at Greggs and provide support to one another.

Each network is attended by colleagues from around the business, Operating Board Directors sponsor each network, meaning we have the right people tuning in to help build a truly inclusive workplace which values, acknowledges and empowers our colleagues.

Health and wellbeing

At Greggs, we are committed to protecting and promoting positive health and wellbeing for all colleagues. Positive wellbeing is important for colleagues' health, social wellbeing and their life both inside and outside of work.  We encourage all colleagues to look after themselves to lead a happy, healthy and active lifestyle.

All Greggs colleagues also have access to Help@hand which is Unum’s health and wellbeing app which provides fast, direct access to health and wellbeing support with a fully integrated Employee Assistance Programme.

This is all underpinned by our Mental Health & Wellbeing and Flexible Working policies as well as online learning and an environment where we encourage open conversations to support each other.

Giving people a Fresh Start​

Our Fresh Start initiative reaches candidates who might not normally apply through our mainstream recruitment processes and encourages people from diverse backgrounds to learn about the great opportunities that Greggs has to offer.​

At Greggs we understand that not everybody is always job ready, sometimes things happen which might mean that you haven’t been able to work for a period. We believe that by not overlooking a person because of their past we can support and develop them to their full potential.​

​Fresh Start’s five year plan has enabled us to reach over 3,400 candidates to date and offer over 2,300 work experience hours with over 175 job offers, and these figures are still growing.
