Tony Moss, who was licensee at Admiral tenancy the Griffin Inn, Trevalyn, North Wales, aims to use his previous experience of the pub game to help licensees through their recruitment journey.
In the role, Moss will be one of the first points of contact for any prospective licensee making an enquiry or attending an open day pub event. He will work alongside BDMs helping licensee applicants on the journey from initial conversation through to pub selection – and signing an agreement with the community pub group.
He will also assist licensees with any training and development support they may require.
Suzanne Smith, head of recruitment and people development at Admiral, said: “From a licensee perspective, we’re delighted that Tony has joined us. It’s an enormous benefit to have front-line experience on the team, and importantly – as it does in the BDM role – will help cement the recruitment and training function’s credibility with new Admiral licensees, who may not have worked with us before.”
Moss added: “I am really excited about the opportunity to help and advise other licensees, who may be new to the industry or new to Admiral, and believe I can genuinely make a difference to them. I have been there – in their shoes – so understand the issues and challenges, the training needs, and also the recruitment process from a licensee perspective.”
