Here at Charles Wells we like to ensure you are fully prepared to take on the challenges involved in running a pub and, especially so, if you are completely new to the industry.

Consequently, we will create an entirely bespoke mentoring programme which is specifically designed around you and your needs.   Whether your current skills require honing or whether you are looking for your first experience in the trade, our approach will ensure your mentoring experience is effective, practical and constructive. 

Our licensees are part of the Charles Wells family and are willing to share their experience with you. Whether you want hands on experience in the kitchen, cellar training or marketing tips they are willing and ready to listen to all your queries and questions.   This important insider perspective will help us to identify any knowledge gaps and will provide you with an excellent foundation for future success.
