Penderyn's team recruitment continues for new Llandudno distillery


March 30, 2021

As the renovation of the Old Board School building on Lloyd Street, Llandudno starts to complete, Penderyn are continuing to recruit for several posts created by the development.

Penderyn were granted planning permission in August last year to restore and convert the former school into a Distillery and Visitor Centre.

Since then, contractors from Mold-based MPH Construction have been carrying out the renovation works, including the addition of a modern glazed extension to the back of the building.

Opening shortly, the working distillery will produce a range of unique peated single malt whiskies on site, as well as provide a year-round, all weather tourism attraction in North Wales.

In the region of 13 jobs are expected to be created in the first year, with the latest roles being distillery operators and full time team members.

Applications are welcomed until April 2nd for full time team members who should have customer service experience, computer literacy, flexibility and ideally Welsh speaking skills.

Neil Quigley, Penderyn Director of Operations said: “We are very pleased to see the progress that’s been made on site, despite the obvious challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic and Brexit.

"We’re to start the installation and commissioning by early April at the latest. This means that we’re still on track to be open to the public by the spring or early summer.

"We want to recruit a strong team to run the operations in Llandudno. We already have a solid base of loyal customers in North Wales, but having the Distillery and Visitor Centre in Llandudno will put us in a stronger position to further develop our brand and networks across the region and beyond.

"We’re inviting applications from anyone who shares our passion for growing the Penderyn brand regionally, nationally and internationally.

"We’re really hoping to attract people with the relevant skills from the local area and help boost the North Wales labour market at the end of what has been an exceptionally difficult 12 months.”

To apply for any full time team positions, please send a full CV and covering letter to Llandudno@penderyn.wales by 2nd April 2021.
