Golden Opportunity For A New Career 

Arkell's Brewery are once again holding their annual Recruitment Day
Arkell's Recruitment Day Swindon Jobs
Golden opportunities exist for those seeking a career in the licensed trade, according to Arkellís Brewery, which is once again holding its Recruitment Day, on Tuesday 06 March, 1pm-8pm at Arkellís Brewery in Swindon.
Brewery director, George Arkell, said: "Arkellís Brewery has 100 pubs across Swindon and the South and West of England, and weíre always on the look-out for good publicans."
"At this time of year many people consider a change in career, so weíre offering a look at the licensed trade."
However, the licensed trade is going through a period of change.
Some might regret that the number of back-street pubs selling beer are getting fewer, but breweries and pub-owners know that most customers want much more, and this gives tenants the opportunity to turn the old-fashioned pub into a broader business.
Running a pub requires dedication and investment
"Practically all pubs have multiple income-generating opportunities and ours are no exception," explained George. "Now a publican can sell beer, food Ė including take-away, host events and offer overnight accommodation too. Some of our pubs even have hard standing for caravans."
It takes a certain sort of person to be a publican, according to George.
"We canít write a job description for the perfect publican: we generally know whether theyíve got what it takes when we meet them, and when we do, we give all the help they need."
He adds: "Running a pub requires dedication and investment, but if youíre the right person at the right time of your life, itís the business." 
"We are a 160-year old family brewery with pubs, not a big pubco,Ē said George, "To us, itís absolutely all about the people and giving our customers what they want, and thatís the way we want it to stay."
