Vocation Leeds

Supervisor/ Senior Bar Staff Position

Vocation brewery began brewing in 2015, quickly gaining a reputation for modern hop forward beers. From small beginnings it has grown rapidly to be one of the UK’s leading independent craft breweries.

In June 2017 the brewery opened its tap room Vocation & Co. in its home Hebden Bridge. Vocation & Co. showcases, not only Vocation products, but a huge range of beers from other well respected breweries from the UK, Europe and America. With 16 Keg lines and 4 cask lines it boasts the best selection of keg beers in the local area.

Now we are bringing this to Leeds. Located near the Millennium Square in what used to Carpe Diem the new site will boast 50 lines of the best keg and cask beer out there. 

This is going to be awesome and we need good people to join us on the journey!
