Working at Starbucks

Connect to something bigger

Connecting with each other, with our customers and the communities we are a part of fosters a deep sense of purpose at Starbucks. We believe we can all become a part of something bigger and inspire positive change in the world around us. For these reasons, we go out to do community service as a team throughout the year, partnering with organisations to revitalise and enhance the neighbourhoods we serve.


At Starbucks our benefits packages are tailored to the needs of our partners.

All partners receive something called Bean Stock which is a scheme that makes all our partners shareholders in the business. Restricted Stock Units (RSU) are awarded every year to all partners based on their role and eligibility.

In addition all partners have access to a pension scheme, which can grow with you as you go on your career journey with Starbucks. We also regularly benchmark our salaries to ensure our pay and benefits stay competitive – so that you're not tempted to go elsewhere. Your benefits might also include bonuses and team awards.

We offer exciting and innovative voluntary benefits that are available to all our partners. Access is via a website, which provides links to a wide range of lifestyle benefits that help your money go as far as possible. Our unique “Blend partner discounts” can help you, by making your weekly grocery shopping cheaper, or making that once in a lifetime holiday more accessible. We are sure you will find benefits that suit your needs and work with your lifestyle.

Beyond the basics, we realise the importance of recognising the achievements of our partners. We have a number of recognition rewards, which allow everyone to celebrate in the success that we all strive toward. We have daily awards, quarterly awards and yearly awards, so that we get the chance to show our appreciation for each other every day.

Plus, each week, you will get the choice of taking home either a bag of our fantastic whole bean coffee, a box of tea or a 12 pack of VIA® Ready Brew.

Diversity and Inclusion

At Starbucks, we strive to create a culture that values and respects diversity and inclusion. Our goal is to build a diverse workforce, increase competencies, shape a culture of inclusion and develop a diverse network of suppliers. Our welcoming work environment encourages partners to engage with one another and make Starbucks a place they look forward to working each day.
