Punch split to create new jobs

11/05/2011

The demerger of Burton-upon-Trent pubco Punch Taverns will create more than 70 jobs at the company’s two support centre buildings, it has said. Vacancies will include positions in finance, marketing, logistics and HR.

Punch Taverns’ talent & resourcing business partner Catherine Smith said: “This is an extremely exciting time to be joining Punch as we go from one to two independent companies over the next couple of months.

“The vacancies are within both the leased and managed side of our business, which boasts an array of branded pubs such as Chef & Brewer, Fayre & Square, Flaming Grill and Taylor Walker.”

Smith added that the company would also be launching a master’s degree in multiple retail leadership.

Punch announced earlier this year plans to demerge the Spirit chain of the business.

The pubco said it will separate the leased and managed businesses with the demerger of Spirit, which would completed by the summer.

Two public companies will be created through the venture.
