Case study

Bitters N Twisted Venues runs eight successful bars and restaurants in Birmingham and Worcestershire including Bodega, Island Bar and Marmalade bistro bar at Birmingham Rep. The company originally approached us at the end of 2014 to place adverts for chefs on the Jobshop online service.


We invited Operations Manager, Steve Bould to talk about how the Employer Engagement team could work with Bitters N Twisted Venues. We discussed the company’s unique selling points and developed an advert promoting the kitchens’ use of fresh foods. We used images of one of the restaurants, Bodega in Birmingham, to promote the vacancies on digital screens throughout the University.

Four students were subsequently taken on to fill the chef roles.
