About us
JD Wetherspoon is a leading pub operator in the UK & Ireland. Founder Chairman, Tim Martin opened the very first ‘Wetherspoon’, in Muswell Hill, north London, back in 1979. Today, Tim and the company run over 950 pubs and hotels, spread right across the UK & more recently, Ireland. During this 30-year history, the company has repeatedly led the way – more... with ground-breaking initiatives, picked up hundreds of awards (covering all aspects of pub life) and grown from a handful of staff to over 30,000 employees. The company seeks to develop staff through effective and award-winning training and development, through a positive working environment and, of course, by means of a decent pay packet. Every year, thousands of staff complete one or more training courses, not only preparing them to work safely and to the best of their ability, but also inspiring them to pursue positive career development. The company prides itself in offering excellent training and support at all levels within Wetherspoon.

Mission: Our aims are to have by far the best CQSMA* standards in the pub world, to be the best company to work for and, by doing these things, to be the most profitable. *Cleanliness, quality, service, maintenance and atmosphere.
