At Hippo Inns we aim to have fun!

Working as part of a small friendly team we do our very best to work in an inclusive and happy environment.

We believe that life is too short to not enjoy your job so we want to find people who love and care about what they do who will share their ideas and have fun. We are opening new sites all the time so the opportunity to develop and grow is huge.

We offer great training and development along with staff discount across all our pubs.

If you’re interested in becoming a Hipp-star please get in touch!

The Rhino

Rupert, refuses to open doors. Instead charges them down.

Rupert is the big cheese, our chief Rhino. He has a phenomenal amount of experience, a legitimate industry icon (no really, he’s got an award to prove it). He’s the man who sets it all in motion and inspires us to do great things.

We asked him what gets him buzzing, ticking, animated about the hospitality industry, he told us;

I love the buzz an excitement of a busy room, packed with happy customers. There is no greater thrill than seeing people enjoy what you have been partially or wholly responsible for. Having a love for speed, this provides a similar adrenalin buzz. I particularly like seeing young, energetic people passionate about giving great service & making a career in this industry. Life has changed so much in the leisure sector, all for the better.

The Jaguar

Jo, happiest asleep in a tree.

Jo is our very own great creator. Jo makes a vision a reality, the one with all the ideas. She sets the scene and we write the script

Why Pubs we asked?

25 years ago I hated London pubs – I started to create places for girls with good wine, comfy seats and pleasant loos – then smoking was banned and pubs became even better places to go and eat.

I like places you can walk into on your own as a woman, not feel intimidated and today I help to make Hippo sites great watering holes for girls (and boys of course)

The Hippo

Hoss, spends the majority of his day wallowing in mud.

Hoss is our operational wizard who loves spreadsheets almost as much as he loves rugby. He keeps all the cogs turning and the hippo herd together.

The Cheetah

Caroline, able to outrun a cheetah in a straight 100m sprint.

Caroline oh Caroline! There is nothing she can’t do. She glues us all together and keeps on the straight and narrow. Our resident number cruncher.

 

The Racoon

Rowan, an opportunistic eater.

Rowan is our marketing maestro. She’s got the creative vision that makes all our Hippo fun happen.

The Aligator

Ali, would make a beautiful handbag if captured.

Ali is the King of planning. He’s alarmingly organised and is the man who makes all our new openings run so smoothly.

The Cockatoo

Caz, refuses to leave the house without a feather headdress.

Caz knows how to throw a serious party. She reigns supreme over all our fabulous function spaces and makes your night one to remember.

The Warthog

Wil, so fed up of being mistaken for Pumba he just signs the autographs anyway.

Wil is our service superstar. He makes our team of Hipp-stars the very best they can possibly be.

The Antelope

Annie, can’t run – only prances and frolics.

Annie drives our online presence. A lover of all things creative and our in-house wordsmith.
