All our restaurants have an Assistant Manager, making this a natural first step toward running one of our restaurants.

Assistant Manager

You’ll already have some management or supervisory experience under your belt. So, you’ll know what it’s like when the pressure is on. And you’ll be ready and willing to stand in for the Restaurant Manager, whenever needed – what better way to be preparing for the move up?

Our Assistant Managers actively help run all aspects of the restaurant, including team and stock management. This includes the commercial side – analysing sales and financial figures, looking for ways to improve performance and setting new targets.

You’ll need great leadership skills and will have already supported team members to reach their potential. If this sounds like you – and you’re genuinely passionate about PizzaExpress – we’d like to hear from you.

Recruitment process

You can search for roles on the Careers section of our website and apply online. The process will take you a maximum of 5 minutes. If your application is successful, we will invite you to take part in a phone interview. If successful at that stage, we will invite you to a face-to-face assessment. This will consist of a more in-depth interview and real-world assessment in our restaurants. Finally, we will let you know the outcome, whether you’re successful or not.

Right to work in the UK

Please bring the following documents with you on your assessment day, as well as a colour photocopy of each that we will keep for our files:

(i.e. National Insurance Card, P60, a P45 dated within the last 3 months, or a letter issued by HMRC or your previous employer)



(e.g. a visa, or worker registration scheme letter for European A8 Countries’ nationals only, or Blue/Yellow registration card for Croatian nationals only)

All supporting documents need to be valid and in date. If your name on your passport or other document is different to your current name, please bring proof of your name change (e.g. marriage certificate or name change by deed poll document).
