“Livelyhood is a friendly, approachable place, hard working times but fun times, makes it a good place to work.”

Andy – General Managers at The Regent

“Seeing how the owner Sarah really interacts with the team and the great recognition of the staff – these are the big differences to other workplaces.”

Carlos – Deputy Manager The Old Frizzle

“After working behind the bar at The Clapham North since 2015, Livelyhood offered me a great opportunity as Events Co-ordinator for the group, truly standing by their ethos of internal progression”
