Our Culture

OFFBEET employs a team of star performers. These star performers have bought into the ideology and culture of OFFBEET. Through this culture we learn, support and inspire each other daily and at all times put the future of OFFBEET first and foremost.

The OFFBEET culture is what defines us. It’s what will ensure our success and growth well into the future. Our culture is built upon the following foundations:

Values
We particularly value certain key behaviours & skills in our staff that we believe will develop our business and teams. All of us are responsible for value consistency.
High Performance
We employ only high performers who demonstrate a self starter, go getter attitude with the ability to complete goals. We measure high performance based on the efficiency and positive impact you have on OFFBEET, not the hours you work.
Freedom & Responsibility
Processes form an important part of our roles, they help eliminate critical errors, train new staff and automate systems so we can focus on driving OFFBEET forwards. We treat everyone with respect and as adults, we give you freedom to create, freedom to always give your input no matter how controversial it may be. With freedom comes responsibility and the utmost care our teams have for OFFBEET.
Promotion & Development
We believe in promotion and development but promotions will only be given to star performers who have outgrown their roles and consistently achieve goals.
Life at OFFBEET
As a business still very much in it’s infancy we want to get things right from the outset. We believe with the right team, a business can work for you, not you work for the business. If we put in effective, creative, commercially sound and passionate energy we can build a business we are both proud of and one that supports our lifestyle and family outside of work.

This is why OFFBEET seeks out very ambitious, brillantly talented and game changing individuals. It’s paramount that we all give our work day 100%. It’s a fast paced, physically and mentally demanding job but we never forget to have fun, reward each other and enjoy everything we do.

Let's get Serious

We don’t offer jobs at OFFBEET, we offer careers and the opportunity to make a difference both in and outside of work. Your role within OFFBEET will begin with an induction of all the different areas, from front of house to kitchen and finally to the back office. It’s important to us to teach our people the impact every single job has on our success.

Development will not stop there, we encourgage all our people to continually learn and nuture themselves. OFFBEET will help develop a training programme both short and long term including experience outside of work such as visiting our suppliers, other restaurants and external courses.

Core benefits of each job role include:

Annual salary review – If you exceed expectations and contribute your best to OFFBEET, you should be rewarded.

Bonuses – Bonuses are awarded for those who go that extra mile. If you help us grow, we’ll share that success with you.

4 day work week – What!? A 4 day work week? Will I get paid less? No! OFFBEET is about working efficiently, 100% of the time but also about work / life balance. We offer competitive salaries but fit our working week into 4 days so you can enjoy your life to the max!

Private health contributions – OFFBEET will help you stay fit and healthy.

The Fun Stuff
No Boring Meetings – Aside from 1:1’s and daily checkins we run a company meeting four times a year. These meetings always take place away from the place of work in a fun and relaxed setting. We try and make them as exciting as possible with food, drink, games and some awards.

Last Sunday Wind Down Night – Join us for some drinks and nibbles to wind down and pat ourselves on the back for working so hard at the end of the month.

Maverick of the Month – Each month an employee is nominated by other members of staff for going above and beyond. They will be treated to a lovely restaurant meal for two.

Lunch and Snacks – All staff are entitled to a free lunch and the fridge will be stocked with drinks, snack bars and fruit to keep those energy levels peaking. If you arrive early, don’t worry we also have breakfast ready with fresh coffee and tea too.

Your Interview


Stage 1

Successful applicants will be invited to an informal interview. This is your chance to tell us all about you! We’d love to understand why you have applied, how you are the perfect person for the job and also what tickles your fancy outside of work and your favourite party trick. We highly recommend you refer your experience and skills to our values and culture at this stage!
Stage 2

Applicants shortlisted from the first interview will be invited back to meet some of the team you will be working with. You will also be asked to complete a short practical test relating to your job role area. Our practical tests are really looking for how you deal with being put under a little pressure, how you can think on your feet and be inventive. Don’t worry though we try to make them as fun as possible!
Stage 3

For the final interview stage you will be invited for an informal chat with a director of the company to really drive home why you can make a difference to OFFBEET. You’ve made it this far so we’ve definitely seen great potential in you, now it’s time to dazzle the big boss. Don’t forget to ask questions too!
