ARKELL'S Brewery is on hunt for the next generation of landlords to run its stunning country pubs.

The family-run brewers, which traces its roots back to 1843, is looking for new landlords to take over the reigns at pubs in Newbury, Malmesbury, and Hannington.

George Arkell, managing director, said: “We are incredibly passionate about pubs and brewing the finest beers, lagers and ales. This passion extends across all parts of the business and it is important to us that our licensees feel empowered to make their mark on the pub and can enjoy being their own boss.

“We are looking for people that have lots of personality and a can-do attitude to life. We don’t ask for any formal qualifications, but excellent communication skills, great time management skills and the willingness to look after great beer are a brilliant start.”

Ayesha Robson, landlady of The Riverside Inn in Lechlade, said: “Being a landlady isn’t just a job, it’s a way of life. No two days are ever the same. You meet some amazing characters and bring people together, it’s a really fantastic job.”

The recruitment day is at the Arkell's HQ in Stratton from 3pm - 7pm.
