Associates’ pay and bonus

My money

All pubs are allocated a pay band and, in some cases, additional pay may be allocated, depending on your pub’s location.

We regularly review your pay rates to ensure that you are paid correctly for your role, location, knowledge and experience.

Service loyalty reward

We also pay additional rates per hour as a service loyalty reward.

Night working premium 

An additional £1 (€1 in ROI) an hour is paid for any working time during midnight–5.59am.


Associate and team leader bonus scheme

As a pub-based employee, you will automatically be enrolled in the pub bonus scheme. The associate bonus scheme has four elements: sales; profit; CQSMA (our measure of standards of cleanliness, quality, service, maintenance and atmosphere); audit performance. Bonus payments, when due, are paid monthly and/or quarterly with employees’ pay.

Associates and team leaders can earn up to an additional 19% of their pay in bonus. Shift leaders can earn up to an additional 22%.
