Following some confusion, we’ve been in touch with three of the new businesses set to open this Autumn on the Longbridge development for some guidance on how they will be recruiting.

We have some information from Sainsburys and Greene King (Hungry Horse pub) already and will add information from Whitbread re the Premier Inn and Beefeater restaurant jobs when we receive it.

Matt Brown, business unit director for Hungry Horse, said: “We are very excited to be opening a new Hungry Horse in Longbridge and bringing around 40 full and part time jobs to the local area in autumn 2013.

“We are now looking for enthusiastic team members, including assistant managers, chefs and front of house staff.  If you think you have what it takes to be on the front line of this famous brand, please contact the pub’s business development manager, Greg Gibbons, on

“The new pub will have something for all the family to enjoy and we look forward to welcoming customers and team members to this great value, family friendly pub very soon.”
