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 email us at info@hippoinns.com or call us for a chat on 020 637 6366

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

Adrian, only territorial when in the water… or one of our watering holes, is not the usual dangerous character. As Operations Director he is our man with the plan and helps herd our fellow Hippos, but with enthusiasm and a smile. With a mound of experience behind him, he works closely with the Rhino and helps the Elephant stomp!

The Racoon

 

Rowan, scurries around making sure every watering hole is up-to-date and promoting themselves in the best way possible. As our marketing maestro, her creative vision makes all the fun happen, working closely alongside our Hippo herd and often teaming up with the Hyena. An opportunistic eater, you can find her enjoying our watering holes, thinking about the next plan!

The Giraffe

George, spends most of his time on his feet and needs very little sleep… You will find him stock taking at the crack of dawn and making sure we have only the best fresh and seasonal products. A lover of food and constantly munching, his role has one tall order!

The Hyena

Harrie, likes to laugh and brings the fun to the social side of things. She loves a good natter in our watering holes but also loves communicating with our guests digitally through social media. Anything we’ve got to shout about, check out our Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin for her updates. Partners in crime with the Racoon, she also works on the marketing and PR creatively supporting the Hippo herd.

The Elephant

Eima, loves being part of a herd and hanging around our watering holes. As Operations Manager of our pubs she has her work cut out and communication is key – which is helped by big ears! Providing support and direction is of upmost important which comes naturally from her experience and time spent in the Hippo family.

The Jackal

Jess, hunts out a party and certainly knows how to throw one. As Sales Manager, she reigns supreme over all our fabulous function spaces, making sure they are booked and our watering holes are buzzing!

The Lion

Lee, is always hunting for the best food. As Executive Head Chef he leads the herd when it comes to innovative menus and exciting new dishes. A social eater, he is often found sharing food with his pride, making sure guests are well fed and happy. His vast experience and love for watering holes means you are sure to get a good bite!

The Alligator

Alyce, nocturnal by nature, loves a good night out in our watering holes! However, as Training and Engagement Manager, during the day there is no time for basking in the sun and taking long naps – you will often find her rushing from one watering hole to the next to help her fellow herd members make sure each day goes swimmingly. Highly organised, she likes to get things done snappily!
