Company Details

Although Oak Tree Pubs is the name of a chain of pubs, that does not mean these establishments are immediately recognisable as a chain. Each pub retains its own character by the building it is situated in and its location. Previously operating under the name, Town Centre & Community Pubs, operator Mitchells and Butlers decided to change the name to Oak Tree Pubs in 2012 to reflect the eclectic mix of establishments. With over 130 Oak Tree Pubs across towns and communities in England, Scotland and Wales, there could be many opportunities for student jobs and full time careers for those looking to work in the hospitality and catering industry.

Oak Tree pubs differ in size, style and character but opportunities within the pubs are likely to be bar jobs, serving a range of drinks to customers. Again, the type of drinks will vary from pub to pub. For example, one Oak Tree pub in Glasgow is famous for its range of whiskies. Other vacancies could arise in the form of restaurant jobs, waiting on tables; kitchen assistant staff and for the more experienced, working as a chef and in management. Both part time jobs and full time roles could be available, depending on the size of the pub.
