The Duke’s Head, Young and Co. Brewery

Connecting The Duke’s Head with a reliable temp work service to supply quality bar, waiting and kitchen staff during peak periods of business.

The Due's Head Young's & Co Pub

The Duke’s Head Pub in Putney is part of the Young & Co. Brewery Chain situated in a grand Victorian grade II listed building that has watched over the River Thames in Putney for nearly 150 years.

Sitting at the start of the Oxford and Cambridge University Boat Race, she has enjoyed this uniquely British battle of the oars for over a Century, the perfect place for early evening drinks by the river and watch the world go by or for a light lunch or hearty Sunday roast in the restaurant.

The Duke’s Head was excited to use Staff Heroes’ innovative temp work service platform, to have the flexibility to source staff at short notice and to benefit from the cost savings gained from using the Staff Heroes platform rather than a hospitality agency.

Finding quality bartenders, waitresses and kitchen porters through the Staff Heroes platform was very easy, meaning that during period of peak demands, such as during the Oxford Cambridge Boat Race there was no compromise on staffing and Guests continued to receive the great service they usually do.

Scaling up bar, waiting and kitchen staff when needed

Through Staff Heroes, The Duke’s Head was able to login to the platform, post shifts and select from hundreds of catering staff to assist with their events and peak periods. Staff Heroes provided The Duke’s Head with a temp work service at their fingertips, saving money and time.

Rated and reviewed hospitality staff

All Heroes on Staff Heroes have been individually interviewed and met in person and come with detailed profiles showing education, work experience, skills and references. Businesses can view their profile, see their past job history and references before making a choice. Only 20% of potential workers who register with Staff Heroes platform are accepted onto the temp work service.

Build pools of temporary hospitality staff

The Staff Heroes favourites feature allows The Duke’s Head to notify previously hired Heroes they rate first when posting a new shift. This means they are able to re-hire staff easily who know the processes and their way around the business
