TGI Friday's to create 90 new jobs in Glasgow

Restaurant chain TGI Friday's has announced plans to create 90 jobs at a new outlet in Glasgow later this year.

The posts, which include management positions, will be based at the Glasgow Fort shopping centre in Easterhouse.

The move is part of an expansion drive which will see the chain open six new restaurants and create a total of more than 600 jobs in the UK this year.

TGI Friday's already employs 475 staff at five Scottish outlets spread between Glasgow, Aberdeen and Edinburgh.

The restaurant at Glasgow Fort is due to open in August.

The shopping centre is expanding this year, with several new restaurants and a cinema complex due to open in the summer as part of a £9m project.

TGI Friday's said its restaurant expansion was being driven by an "outstanding period of sustained growth".

David Carroll, TGI Friday's UK director of acquisitions and development, said: "One of our main challenges this year will be sourcing passionate and enthusiastic team members for the new openings.

"With roles varying from bartenders and managers, through to chefs and shift leaders, we're keen to hear from those that would like to start or progress their career with us."
