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 Thomas Arms 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 Thomas Arms is a fantastic bar and hotel in Llanelli, it also has a large function room with a wedding licence so perfect for all occasions. It has a small outside seating area too as well as two carparks. 

Currently trading 70/30 - there is huge potential to create more wet sales in the bar area with the new addition of a pool table and darts board. There is a strong food sales offer with new menu coming and the Sunday Carvery. 
 
The hotel within the site is booked up and doing well - but this site has so much opportunity for growth!
 
There is 2 bed accommodation with the pub.

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!
