Shelter Brewing Co is on a big local recruitment drive in preparation for opening its doors this spring.

General manager Paul Maley said a management team had been appointed and it was now time to fill the other roles.

“We have an excellent leadership team in place and we’re looking to recruit between 60 to 70 locals for roles on the floor, in the kitchen, in the brewery and behind the bar,” he said.

“We’re looking for team players, passionate locals experienced in hospitality who fit the culture of Shelter Brewing Co, which I like to describe as a kind of beachy, friendly professional.”

Positions available include brewer, chef de partie, pizzaiolo, commis chef, apprentice chef, cook, kitchen hands, bar staff, floor staff and back-of-house staff.

City of Busselton Mayor Grant Henley said the injection of new positions in the local job market was welcome news.

“This is exactly what our community needs right now — new job opportunities and more money in the pockets of local people,” he said.

“Not only will people directly benefit through employment, there will be spin-off benefits across the tourism, hospitality and retail sectors.”

Staff will be given training in Shelter Brewing Co operations ahead of the public opening anticipated before November.

Shelter Brewing Co’s architecture is centred around active brewing which is open and forms part of the venue. It features a floor-to-ceiling glass external wall that looks into the main brewery, indoor trees, a first floor multi-function room, an outdoor area for kids to play and a beer garden that takes advantage of the ocean views.

The recruitment open day is on Saturday, October 3 from 10am to 3pm.
