Costa Coffee


Find out about our current opportunities here.

A mission to become the world’s number one coffee brand, so whether you’re at home, at work or on-the-go, as a Total Coffee Company, we’re proud to provide our customers the opportunity to enjoy their favourite Costa coffee, wherever, whenever, whatever the occasion.

It’s a big vision and one almighty challenge, but with a passion for what we do, the courage to follow our convictions and the support of a warm and trusting environment, we’ll get there.


About us

In 1971 the brothers Bruno and Sergio Costa set up a Roastery. Four years later they had opened their first coffee shop in London. From tiny beans, great big Mochas grow, and today we’re the UK’s favourite coffee shop, with over 2,400 stores here alone. We also have 1,400 stores in 31 international markets. Plus more than 8,000 Costa Express self-service machines dotted across the world. We’ve always believed that quality coffee, served in the right way; on the right occasion is more than just a drink. It’s a feeling. An experience. We focus our collective passion and expertise on creating a combination of authentic, crafted tastes, convenience and community spirit. It’s a combination made to leave customers smiling, whether they’re meeting friends at their local Costa or picking up a Caffè Latte from a Costa Express machine. We want to be a sustainable coffee business, and that means investing in a sustainable coffee supply. Since 2008 we have worked with the Rainforest Alliance, and were the first UK coffee brand to source 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified™ coffee. Giving us the assurance that the coffee, or cocoa, we serve has been produced in a responsible and sustainable way. On top of that, we have also committed to recycling the same amount of takeaway cups that we put into the market by 2019.




Diversity and Inclusion

We celebrate difference and believe that everyone should be able to bring their true self to work, in a culture that embraces diversity of thought. We advocate collaboration, transparency & listening to our people; no matter who they are or where they come from.

As part of this, our internal networks, Shine, Belong, Inside Out and Together help our people to connect and shape our future. We don’t believe in putting people in boxes; instead we focus on inclusion, to make sure that there is something for Everyone.

Our Network Groups

We don’t believe it’s enough to say that every single person at Costa Coffee matters. We like to show it. Our Inclusion & Diversity networks are one of the ways we do so.
