The Railway Drive venue is expected to open its doors on 30 March and has already been named 'The Sunbeam', in honour of the historic Wolverhampton motorcycle and car firm.

City of Wolverhampton Council is now helping Greene King source front of house staff, cleaners and experienced kitchen staff.

A recruitment day is being held at Wolverhampton Adult Education Service centre, Old Hall Street, on Wednesday 3 February, between 12.30pm and 4.30pm.

Councillor John Reynolds, Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "The completion of the multi million pound showpiece i10 building just before Christmas was a huge boost for the city.

"Retail tenants are fitting out on the ground floor and I am delighted to see the project is already delivering jobs for the people of Wolverhampton.

"I am sure the new The Sunbeam family friendly pub restaurant will prove a popular venue in the city centre."

Paul Garland, Greene King Business Development Manager of The Sunbeam, added: "We are really excited to get our doors open and show the people of Wolverhampton their new pub.

"The Sunbeam will be the place that welcomes anyone looking to enjoy good quality, great value, food or drink in a fun and friendly atmosphere while they visit the city centre.

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with the council and help provide around 50 local people with employment."
