Punch jobs in hot demand

Punch jobs in hot demand

Punch Taverns has reported a sharp rise in applications for licences and pub manager jobs.

The Staffordshire firm is receiving up to 90 applications a week from unlikely candidates including doctors, lawyers and accountants, reported the Birmingham Post.

Punch regional operations director Giles Kendall said applications have been flooding in at a time when more people are assessing their hospitality recruitment prospects in a bid to improve their "work-life" balance.

"I think the penny has dropped around people and the hours they are working, whether as an employee or if they are working for themselves," commented Kendall, adding: "A business run correctly as a pub business can still be very attractive, although people have to work very hard at it."
