We're Costa, the nation's favourite coffee shop brand*, pouring our heart and soul into everything we do and creating moments to remember for our customers, our communities and for each other.
As Store Manager, your store is yours. Naturally there are brand standards to adhere to and the customer is always at the heart of everything we do, but when it comes to creating unbeatable coffee experiences, there's plenty of room to let your personality flow too.

• Be commercially savvy, with the ability to maximise the financial performance of your store and effectively manage budgets
• Be a real people-person, always accessible and hugely passionate when it comes to recruiting, developing and empowering your team.
• Thrive on responsibility; you'll make it your job to exceed our expectations as well as your customers.
Bring us the kind of ambition, knowledge and leadership skills that just need to be shared, and in return we'll give you a competitive starting salary, an attractive yearly bonus, plenty of benefits including 25% to 50% discount across the Whitbread Group, Company pension, sharesave scheme, and access to a wide range of shopping discounts via our Costa Perks website.
All of this and a whole lot of opportunity to develop and progress, with expansion happening both in the UK and Internationally.
