The Plume of Feathers in Barlaston, which will re-open on Friday 6th March following a £400,000 joint refurbishment, is hosting a Recruitment Day on Wednesday 11th February to attract 15 talented people.
The Punch Taverns pub, on Station Road, will be operated by a strong management team including real ale ambassador and local lad Neil Morrissey, experienced operators Anne and James Waddington and Midland’s businessman Richard Slingsby.
Following the investment, The Plume of Feathers will be transformed into a stylish local pub at the heart of village life. Thanks to Neil’s passion for beer, the venue will offer a wide range of real ales, including locally brewed guest varieties. Customers will also be able to enjoy a tempting menu of pub classics with a local feel, together with outstanding service.
As it gears up for launch, The Plume of Feathers is recruiting for a range of full and part time roles, from assistant manager to front of house and bar teams, second chef, kitchen assistants and pot washers.
Operator Anne Waddington said: “We want The Plume of Feathers to be that ‘third place’ that people come to – not home, not work – but the place they naturally default to when they want to relax, so it’s really important that we recruit the right kind of people. It’s all about having a friendly face and a warm smile behind the bar and developing a team of people that are completely focused on creating a great experience for our customers.”
Successful candidates will receive comprehensive training and development opportunities.
Punch Taverns’ central operations manager Dave Pawson added: “It’s great to be working in partnership with such an experienced team to invest in the Plume of Feathers and create vital new jobs for the local area.”
