We created a survey for our staff members to complete and tell us what they loved most about working as part of the Patisserie Valerie brand and what makes a great team member.

We currently have around 2000 employees throughout the UK based in our stores, bakeries, transport, warehouses and head office. With expansions plans seeing more and more stores open nationwide, we are always on the lookout to expand our team.
At PV we are passionate about promoting diversity and inclusion in all its forms and promoting fairness, curiosity and respect for our own unique differences. We strive daily to promote equality across gender, disability, mental and physical health and different abilities, BAME and LGBT+ rights and show care and compassion to those with caring responsibilities. We will continue to grow and develop our support tools for our employees to help promote good mental and physical health beyond our employee assistance programme.
We aim to role model an inclusive work environment in our stores, support office and production environment – a place where every employee feels able to bring their whole self to work and feels safe to show their true personality, unique attributes and feel empowered to be the very best versions of themselves.
Over the next 3 years we will pay greater consideration to diversity and inclusion in everything we do, at all levels of the business and across our departments. Our leaders across our retail stores and in Operational and Head of Department level roles will be trained in 2020 so they can truly lead by example and feel part of our D&I mission.
We will continue to listen, check in with our teams and act on feedback with the key objective of making PV an even greater, more collaborative, open minded and inspiring place to work and progress your career. A policy or written statement in itself is not enough and we know that engaging with all levels of our business is absolutely critical if we are to deliver on our promises and have an positive and lasting intrinsic impact on our teams and employees of the future.
