The chain has revealed its five-year plan to create 15,000 new jobs, which will spread across its existing pubs as well as in the new openings. Positions up for grabs will include management as well as bar and kitchen jobs.

The company is targeting both the UK and the Republic of Ireland for the launches, so pub lovers across the British Isles could get themselves a dream job.

Job seekers with a range of interests could find stimulating job opportunities within the successful and laid back pubs chain.

The company already operates 930 pubs and employs 34,000 staff cross them. The planned new jobs will be the result of a £400m investment.

Tim Martin, JD Wetherspoon founder and chairman, said: “We are proud to be creating so many new jobs and are looking forward to opening the new pubs, many of which will be in areas where Wetherspoon is not yet represented.”

Mr. Martin announced the expansion despite previously blaming the UK tax regime for restricting the pub chain. He has criticised successive governments for not creating a level playing field between supermarkets and pubs.

Managing a pub or working behind a bar can be a rewarding career in many ways, so why not get paid for spending those hours down the boozer!
