Benefits & perks of joining Ministry of Works

Competitive salary & incentive scheme

A competitive wage plays a key role in retaining, motivating and attracting employees. Every compensation is determined with a focus on fairness and strong performance, in line with the market level salaries. We pay well above living wage.

Personal development plan

At MOW Bar we value personal growth. Therefore we encourage our staff to up-skill and train each other and we offer subsidised courses where possible.

Staff discount

We know how important it is to eat and drink well. Hence we offer our staff food and drinks at a discounted price at all times, as well as staff meals straight before or after a shift.
