What makes Greggs a Great Place to Work

Our People

People who work here tell us that one of the best things about Greggs are the people and how we don’t want to let each other down. You can expect a lot of fun at Greggs and also a family atmosphere. To help promote fun at work, a variety of activities take place whether that’s to help raise money for charity, a team night out or a locally organised event


Your Learning & Development

We are committed to helping you develop the necessary skills and knowledge to perform your job effectively and fulfil your potential. Forget about any dull training sessions you may have been on in the past! Our training is full of energy, action packed and fast paced!


Our Communities

Supporting our local communities is really important to Greggs and our people. We’ve now launched over 400 breakfast clubs providing a free breakfast to primary school children. These are a few quotes from our people on of some of the great work we do!

“Spending time out of my day job to help a local homeless charity was really rewarding and keeps things in perspective”
“It’s great to work with a local school and to support the development of young people.- One day they might work for us!”


Your Rewards and Benefits

At Greggs, we believe that our people are our most valuable asset, and that everybody should share in our success. We continuously review the range of benefits and welcome any suggestions or ideas about the benefits we offer.

Staff Discount

Many employees say that one of the best things about working at Greggs is the generous staff discount. We are able to offer our own produced products at 50% discount.

A Share in the Profits

We are proud to say that 10% of our profits are shared with our employees, normally in March each year.


Holidays are really important; they give you a break from work and hopefully allow you to return refreshed! Holiday entitlement starts with 21 days, in addition to statutory holidays. This increases with service up to 30 days after 25 years of service. All part time positions are pro rata'd.


The Greggs pension scheme is a great way to save for the future, and the great thing is that as well as the contributions you make to the scheme, Greggs also contributes to your pension fund.

Life Assurance

We know that this can be a difficult subject to talk about but our Life Assurance is a free death in service benefit available to you after one year's service up to the age of 65.


The Cycle to Work scheme is a Government approved salary sacrifice initiative allowing you to hire a bike and accessories from Greggs for the purpose of cycling to work.

Share Save Schemes

We offer two share schemes – Save As You Earn (SAYE) and the Share Incentive Plan (SIP) – both of which give you the opportunity to own part of the business.
