The new Davenports sport bar in Walsall is creating 30 new jobs.

Last month the Smethwick-based brewery announced it will be opening The Met on the site formerly occupied by Bar10 in Wolverhampton Street.

The new jobs will include several management apprenticeships.

Katie McPhilimey, marketing director for owners, Davenports Brewery, said: “Walsall is becoming increasingly cosmopolitan, there is investment into the area, and we’d like to think we’re ahead of that growing curve. Davenports has a strong reputation over the centuries of leading the way in terms of products, services and technology, we pride ourselves on our outward facing staff across our venues and we hope to attract great new talent to The Met, as well experienced talent who wish to work for a strong, expanding company that is creating something authentic, and quite special. We’ve been working with Walsall College with regards to recruitment, they have been so thorough and extremely helpful.”
