Heineken To Create 1,000 Full & Part Time Jobs In The UK country

Heineken has announced investment plans which it says will create around 1,000 full and part time jobs all over the UK.

The Dutch brewing company is to inject over £40 million into its UK pubs and bars, creating hundreds of vacancies at locations in every corner of the country.

Heineken’s Star Pubs & Bars division will spend money upgrading around 1 in 6 of its three thousand UK pub and bar properties, bucking the trend of British pubs closing down in the last few years.

According to data by the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra), British pubs closed down at a rate of 18 per week in the last six months of 2017, so the Heineken announcement brings some welcome relief to the industry.

The average spend at each property will total £170,000, meaning that around 500 Heineken pubs are set for an upgrade and new jobs.

Heineken UK’s managing director, David Forde, said: “We are passionate supporters of the Great British pub and believe that well-invested pubs run by skilled and motivated operators will continue to prosper.”

“We believe that our commitment to investment, and understanding of consumer trends, will help our licensees’ businesses to keep growing and ensure that the Great British pub remains at the heart of British life for generations to come,” added Mr Forde.

Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Greg Clark MP, welcomed Heineken’s announcement, saying: “From pop-up breweries to historic watering holes, pubs are at the heart of communities and play a vital role in local economies. This record investment by Heineken and their creation of 1,000 new British jobs is another significant vote of confidence in the UK economy.”
