'French' bistro chain confirms RWY jobs
A FRENCH-style bistro chain has confirmed it will create 30 jobs when it opens in the Royal William Yard.
Le Bistrot Pierre is due to start trading in March in the recently refurbished New Cooperage building.
The restaurant company, actually based in the Midlands, is hoping to employ up to 30 people in Plymouth and will be interviewing applicants in the next two weeks.
The recruits will take the number of hospitality and catering jobs created at the RWY during the past three-and-a-half years to more than 100.

Le Bistrot Pierre is the latest food offer in the yard, following the opening of Seco Lounge, Prezzo, River Cottage Canteen Deli and the Royal William Bakery.
And there are more to come ,with noodle chain Wagamama and Latin America-themed Las Iguanas also planned to open in the RWY in 2013.
Le Bistrot Pierre, which specialises in French food, already has nine restaurants in the Midlands and north of England.
It is taking 3,800sq ft of space and will neighbour the Envy RWY hair salon and Le Vignoble wine business.
Le Bistrot Pierre will stage two "meet and greet" all-day events for prospective chefs, kitchen porters and full – and part-time waiters and waitresses, on Thursday, January 10, and Wednesday, January 16, at the New Cooperage.
"Each of our bistrots is styled a little differently to complement the building they're in" said Rob Beacham, co-founder of Le Bistrot Pierre.
"It gives us a sense of satisfaction to be expanding during tough economic times, but it is the people at the sharp end, working on the restaurant floor, and in the kitchen, that should take the credit.
"I hope we're going to find a new family here in Plymouth."
