Application Process

To apply for a job with the Greggs family, simply search for a vacancy near you and apply online. Apply as soon as you can as many of our vacancies attract a high number of applications.

Depending on the position you are applying for, filling in your application may take up to 30 minutes. Applying for Retail and Bakery roles will include a set of questions designed to assess how you respond in certain work situations. If you’re successful at this stage, you can then complete our Right Fit Quiz to help you decide if the role you are applying for is right for you. You will need your school, college and work history, as well as qualifications and dates and the details of two referees. If you're 16 years old, one of your referees will need to be a teacher from your school. Please note that you will need to be above the official school leaving age too. This means you cannot apply until the summer following your 16th Birthday.

You will be asked to create an account, which will enable you to save the information you have typed in and return to it at a later stage, apply for other positions and also review the status of your application.

If your application's successful, we'll invite you to attend either an interview or an assessment event. If you're invited to an interview or assessment event, you will be required to provide documentation to support your identity and eligibility to work in the UK.
