The vacancies cover roles from management to kitchen and front of house.

Colin Blair, Buzzworks Holdings chairman, said: “Our renovation involved careful restoration of the historic building, before modernising the facilities to provide a restaurant, pub and beer garden that both complements the original character while giving the local community a venue it can be proud of.
