AT least 30 new jobs will be created as a Hartlepool pub undergoes a £500,000 make-over.
The Travellers Rest, in Stockton Road, will call last orders at the end of June when it will be transformed into a Flaming Grill restaurant.
Owners, the Punch Pub Company, are carrying out the refurbishment and are looking for new staff to work there.
General manager David Bone said: “I am so excited to be the first Flaming Grill in Hartlepool.
“I am now on the lookout for dynamic, hard-working individuals who want to be part of a new team and share in our success.”
Jobs are available in all areas of restaurant work, from front-of-house teams to kitchen staff and cleaners.
Two informal recruitment open days will be held at the pub on Friday, May 27, and Wednesday, June 22, between noon and 8pm.
