Sandwich and pasty chain Greggs is recruiting for staff as it prepares to open a new shop in Kirklees.

The latest addition to its chain will open on Friday, October 20, at Fountain Court, Liversedge.

The Newcastle-based company is currently recruiting locally for 10 new jobs at the 12,000sq ft store at the retail park which will sell a range of sandwiches, savouries, soups, hot drinks and confectionery.

A Greggs spokeswoman said: “The shop layout is designed to meet the demands of busy food-on-the-go shoppers to offer customers a contemporary food-on-the-go experience. Seating is available for customers who wish to relax and enjoy their purchases inside the shop.”
