Turtle Bay, the restaurant and bar with a Caribbean twist, will open in Peterborough city centre in May, creating 50 jobs.
As revealed in the Peterborough Telegraph in January, Turtle Bay is converting part of the old H & M store in Queensgate into a restaurant opening out onto St John’s Square.
The company has started its recruitment drive and will be holding special ‘auditions’ with a Caribbean twist on April 4 and 5 at Peterborough United’s London Road stadium.
The auditions are open to everyone who would like to launch a career as part of the Turtle Bay team, including management. Hopeful Turtles should email firstname.lastname@example.org and come along to the auditions where they will be asked to get into the spirit of the Caribbean with various tasks including limbo dancing and a group task involving being marooned on a Caribbean Island!
The auditions are fun and interactive and designed to bring out the applicants personality.
Turtle Bay is all about celebrating the lively, colourful, soulful and, above all, delicious experiences that the Caribbean has to offer - from rich and explosive flavours to laid back ‘liming’.
Their mission is to capture the spirit of celebration that the Caribbean is famed for around the globe - making customers happy by delivering a hedonistic combination of joyous food, wicked drinks and a fun, relaxed atmosphere. The audition hopefuls will have to get into the spirit of the Caribbean 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 Eddie Coyne, New Openings Manager from 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 Peterborough area as we gear up for our forthcoming opening. It’s set to be an eventful couple of days.”
