Your Career. Made by you.

PizzaExpress is the place for everyone who loves pizza to bring their personality and be their true self. We hire people with passion and individuality, who love creating our handcrafted pizza and providing epic service for our customers. At PizzaExpress, you own your career journey. We’ll work with you to help shape your experience, so that it’s always right for you.

55 years ago, we brought pizza to the U.K. and started our nation’s love affair with pizza. With our kitchens at the heart of our pizzerias, our pizzaiolos (a.k.a. pizza chefs!) have been masters of their craft and the centre of the show. Ever since then, we’ve been famous for our warm welcome, fun and lively atmosphere and delicious pizza – all created and enjoyed by our teams, our customers, and everyone who supplies us.

Our people are the life of our pizzerias; they are the experts in creating experiences perfect for each customer, every time they visit. If you want to be part of a great team, love crafting great pizza, and are passionate about creating fantastic customer experiences then you’ll love working with us. 

You might be looking for a job that sets you up with a progressive career in hospitality, fits into your life outside of work, or simply shifts that support your studies. Or you might want to be at the heart of the action as hospitality booms again. Whatever your reason, PizzaExpress is the place to be yourself, where your input is welcomed and valued, and your career is made by you. Your choice, your career. You belong at PizzaExpress.
