Gusto is actively recruiting on numerous job boards for management vacancies for its new West Bridgford outlet, which has a provisional opening date of February 2017. A spokesperson for the company says that 50 jobs will be created.

The job advert reads: “With Victorian architecture and the River Trent running through this thriving restaurant town, West Bridgford will be a welcome addition to the Gusto estate.

“We are looking for all managers, at all levels with progression opportunities.”

The Monkey Tree closed down in February of this year after its owners said the rates of £34,000 a year had become too expensive.
