Career Development

We have an excellent ‘Learning and Development’ team who deliver our award winning management development programmes to take your career to the next level in management, for those that want to progress!  (These programmes are also linked to nationally recognised qualifications from NVQ to A-Level to Degree level status, so we really do invest in your long term development). SSP offers opportunities to transfer into different categories (coffee & bakery brands, casual dining, fast food, bars, retail brands etc.) and get exposure to multi-unit and multi-site management, as well as progression into support functions like Operational Excellence, HR/Training, business systems / IT support etc.

SSP Academy is our online learning platform that contains thousands of learning articles (e.g. book reviews; podcasts; e-learning courses, videos, interactive exercises etc). The SSP Academy allows individuals to own their learning experience, and access content suitable for their current role or the next role they are working towards. Our Academy is available to colleagues across the globe in the majority of our operating markets.

We pride ourselves in having a flexible approach to management development to support the wide range of needs across our different brands and countries. Underpinned by our online Academy, we have a range of management development programmes suited to different levels.
