St Austell partners with Only a Pavement Away

The partnership will help prison leavers, veterans and people facing or experiencing homelessness.

St Austell Brewery has begun a new partnership with Only a Pavement Away, the charity that helps people facing or experiencing homelessness, prison leavers and veterans into long-term, stable employment in the hospitality industry.

Through the partnership, St Austell Brewery, which owns 38 managed pubs, inns, and hotels across the south west, will work closely with Only a Pavement Away to bring more people going through difficult times into secure and sustainable jobs, helping them to rebuild their lives.

By 2024, Only a Pavement Away is aiming to create more than 700 jobs within the hospitality sector

“As one of Cornwall’s oldest businesses – established in 1851 – we are one of the largest employers in the south west, and own pubs across the region," says Tamsyn Allington, people and communications director at St Austell Brewery. "We’re very proud and fortunate to be able to offer long-term, stable employment to those in need. In turn, we’re confident our partnership with Only a Pavement Away will be thoroughly rewarding for us as a business and give us the opportunity to find talented new team members.

“We’re very excited to be starting on this journey and looking forward to giving people the chance to step into a brighter future, learn new skills, and forge a career path in hospitality.”
