Krystal has her hands full finding new staff.
Working her way up the career ladder, Krystal Schollick was recently appointed to the new position of personnel, training and recruitment manager (Ireland) – a role which she is relishing and enjoying. With new pub openings continuing across Ireland, she has certainly had a very busy first few months in the job.
Krystal marks 18 years’ service with Wetherspoon in 2022 and, having first started as a bar associate, knows at first hand about the opportunities and progression within the company.
How area manager Mike found his ‘forever home’.
Wetherspoon’s area manager (Merseyside, Cheshire and Lancashire) Mike Morrissey had a huge surprise when he arrived at The Friar Penketh (Warrington) during his pub visits. Friends, family and colleagues had gathered to surprise Mike and to mark his 25th anniversary with Wetherspoon.
Liverpool-born Mike joined Wetherspoon in October 1996 at the age of 21. He has been joined, along the way, by several family members, including his dad, wife and daughters!
Abby Herdman, an area manager, has followed the career path she wanted for herself and marked 20 years’ work with the company this summer.
Abby was promoted to her area manager role in 2017 and is responsible for a dozen pubs across Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire, as well as one in each of Rutland and Stamford near Peterborough (Cambridgeshire).
She admitted: “Geographically, my area is a monster and I do spend a lot of time travelling. However, I have a really fab job – and what I love the most about it is the people.”
