Wetherspoons creating 10,000 new jobs in whopping £200 million expansion

Gerald England

Wetherspoons is set for £200m splurge over the next four years - which will result in improved facilities, new boozers, and thousands of career opportunities.

By investing in existing pubs and building a bunch of fresh branches, the UK’s famous chain could create over 10,000 jobs.

A safe haven for booze-lovers who don’t want to break the bank, Spoons already has 875 pubs in Britain.

Before 2024, they are aiming to open new sites in Bourne (Lincolnshire); Waterford (Ireland), Hamilton (Scotland); Ely (Cambridgeshire); Diss (Norfolk); Felixstowe (Suffolk); Newport Pagnell (Buckinghamshire) and Prestatyn (Wales).

Wetherspoons locations in London, Leeds and Birmingham will all enjoy revamps and new facilities.

Founder Tim Martin said: "We are looking forward to opening many more new pubs as well as investing in existing pubs over the next four years.

"We are especially pleased that a large proportion of the investment will be in smaller towns and cities which have seen a decline in investment in recent years.

"The fact that we will be creating approximately 10,000 jobs is great news too.”

Job openings will appear gradually across a range of roles within Wetherspoons - including manager positions as well as bar and kitchen opportunities.
