Up to 50 new jobs will be created when Turtle Bay opens in Swansea and applicants are being invited to ‘audition’ for roles.

The UK restaurant chain will be taking over 4,000 square feet on the ground floor of the former Inspirations shop building on the corner of Castle Street.

The auditions are open to anyone who would like to work at Turtle Bay, including management.

Applicants should email sam.parkin@turtlebay.co.uk using the subject heading Swansea or visit www.turtlebay.co.uk and go along to the auditions where they will be asked to get into the spirit of the Caribbean with various tasks and challenges. A spokesperson said “the auditions are fun and interactive and designed to bring out the applicant’s personality.”

The audition hopefuls will have to get into the spirit and embrace the Caribbean vibe if they are to be successful – the Turtle Bay ethos is that their people must be as passionate about the product as its creators.

Commenting on the auditions, Jacob Cross, New Openings Manager for Turtle Bay said: “The auditions are a great couple of days and really put hopefuls to the test when it comes to being in tune with the Caribbean vibe and the essence of Turtle Bay.”

“We can’t wait to meet the interviewees from the Swansea area as we gear up for our opening. It’s set to be an eventful couple of days!”

Turtle Bay already has restaurants in more than 30 other UK cities, including Cardiff.

The restaurants are designed to capture the spirit of the Caribbean, going for a laid back environment with reggae music and a “beach hut” style. And at night the venue transforms into a bar, serving a wide selection of beers and cocktails, with names inspired by Bob Marley.

Founded in 2010 by Ajith Jayawickrema and Stephen Entwistle, Turtle Bay was the first high street Caribbean-branded restaurant and bar in the UK.
