Young & Co introduces new platform for flexible working

British pub group Young’s has launched a new internal platform, The Ram Agency, to give employees the power to pick their working hours as part of its recruitment drive.

With a growing desire for flexible working and achieving a work-life balance, The Ram Agency is designed to offer workers the option to choose their own working hours across Young’s pubs.

Flexible working has been identified as a key deciding factor for taking a job and in continued job satisfaction, as found in a recent survey from CGA. The Ram Agency is a new online platform available for chefs, front and back-of-house staff, wherein they can create their own working rota by viewing and choosing available shifts across Young’s 210 pubs.

To access, prospective staff can apply online with their CV and once accepted, will have access to daily available shifts across the Young’s estate, with no fixed rota or location.

The agency is available for all hospitality staff to apply, from those with industry experience to students, parents or those looking for part-time work.

Staff will be employees of Young’s with a competitive salary, plus all the company benefits including discounts across the pubs and hotels, career development opportunities and a chance to opt into company shares.
