Pret a Manger set to bring 20 jobs and support a local charity when it opens in Orpington

11th October 2017

The cafe will be opening in the Nugent Shopping Centre

Jobseekers around Orpington have received a boost with the arrival of Pret a Manger.

The food chain is expected to open in the Nugent Shopping Centre by the end of the year, bringing 20 full and part time jobs with it.

Applications are currently open, with more details available here.

Pret operations manager for the area, Selam Mengesha, said: “We are very excited to open in Orpington for the first time and to get to know our local community here.

“We’re currently on the look-out for enthusiastic, fun and hard-working team members to join team Pret. Experience in sandwich making or steaming milk is not essential.”

Charities in the area are also set to receive a boost, as the multi-million pound chain looks to donate unsold food at the end of each day.

Over the past year Pret has donated more than three million food items to shelters and hostels.
