A RECRUITMENT campaign has started for a new sports bar and grill set to open this August.
Shark Club Sports Bar and Grill, a chain based in western Canada, is opening its first European venture in Newcastle.
Officials are looking to fill more than 200 full and part-time vacancies including supervisors, servers, bartenders, bar support and culinary team members.
The venue will be on the ground floor of the new four-star Sandman Signature Hotel, which is being built opposite St James’ Park.
Mark Davies, general manager of the Shark Club Bar and Grill, says: “We’re hoping to find fun-loving, energetic people who are passionate about hospitality both front and back of house.”
The first recruitment day will take place at Newcastle College on June 2, then at Northumbria University on June 7, Newcastle University on June 9 and St James’ Park on June 10, 11, 17, 18 and 19.
