Restaurant Support

Join our ambitious teams, who work together to support every aspect of our restaurant operations. We work in a space that values contribution from everyone, is highly sociable – we’re a restaurant business after all – and has raised over £2m for our charity partners since 2016.

Our head office (that’s restaurant support here), is a hub of specialists who support daily operations in restaurants - from marketing, design and retail to finance, people and IT, we all do our bit to make sure our customers and teams have the best experience.

The People Team

From HR to benefits. Learning and development to communications. Talent to recruitment, we’re all about people.

The Business Team

The Operations Team

The Customer Team

From restaurant design to insights. Digital to loyalty. Marketing to brand management, we bring PizzaExpress to life for our customers.

Training and development

If you're joining Restaurant Support, we want you to understand what it's like in our restaurants and how your role will impact them. This means we like you to spend a couple of days in a restaurant, spending some time in the kitchen and front of house and learning about the challenges our teams face. It's fun, and a good opportunity to learn how to make dough balls! On top of that, your induction will cover all areas of the business and you'll meet key stakeholders to help broaden your knowledge of the business.

Ongoing training and leadership development is provided so we are all kept up-to-date with new initiatives and menu launches.

We’re proud of all the different team members that make up our family and think that sharing and supporting our passions helps to break down the barriers that stop us from really connecting. Each person has a different background and story to bring to the table, and we think the more diverse our family is, the richer it is. As such, we assess each application on the aptitude to do the job and nothing else. It’s vital that no one is discriminated against and that everyone can be their true self. It’s all about good times. Together.
