Hog's Breath starts recruiting for new Gladstone store

GLADSTONE'S new Hog's Breath Cafe will have a major recruitment day on Saturday as work continues on the fit-out of the Goondoon St store.

The recruitment session will take place at the Gladstone Technical College on the corner of Boles and Scenery Sts, on the Gladstone State High School grounds, between 10am and 3pm.

Owner Alex Staines said the session was open to anyone who would like to attend.

"We are looking for people with a fantastic attitude and a really strong work ethic," he said.

"Bring a copy of your CV, a pen and a water bottle."

Mr Staines is looking for members for the kitchen crew, who need to be detail orientated and work well under pressure, and service team members, who need a bubbly personality with a "can-do" attitude.

The majority of roles being offered will be casual, ranging between six and 30 hours per week. Those applying must be able to work weekends.

"For the right candidates, there will be a number of full-time positions available, with the expectation being you'd start as a casual with an offer of full-time employment if the fit is right," Mr Staines said.

"We are expecting a fairly large turnout, so don't forget to bring a water bottle to keep hydrated."

Earlier this year Mr Staines said he didn't expect to have any problems finding suitable staff.

"Because of the Hog's Breath brand, people want to be a part of that. The brand has a bit of attitude and a whole lot of energy, and people are attracted to that," he said in January.

"Unfortunately I'm expecting to have to say no to some people."
