General manager sought for Head of Steam’s return to Liverpool

the abbeyCAMERONS Brewery is advertising for a general manager to lead the team at its new Head of Steam pub opening in Liverpool this September.

The company says it is looking for someone with energy, drive, and enthusiasm with strong financial understanding and a record of delivering sales and profit to budget for one of its flagship sites which is taking over the former Abbey (pictured) in Hanover Street in the city centre.

It marks a return to Liverpool for Camerons – the former Head of Steam in the old North Western Hotel in Lime Street was once one of the city’s most popular pubs. But two years ago it was taken over by Wetherspoons and renamed the North Western after a £2m refurbishment.

Chris Soley, chief executive at Hartlepool-based Camerons Brewery, said: “As part of the expansion plans in place to increase our retail pub division we have been looking at a number of potential opportunities across the UK for our The Head of Steam brand.

“We have specifically been looking at venues in the North West and Liverpool was a city we were really keen to open a site in. Liverpool is a large vibrant city and we feel our mix of craft beer and live music will be a perfect fit to complement the already fantastic pub and bar offerings in the area.

“This venue will be a very different proposition to the previous The Head of Steam pub that had previously traded in Liverpool and will be modelled on the success we have had at our site in Sheffield.”

Head of Steam currently has 14 pubs in the North East and Yorkshire. They include one on Huddersfield station and others in Leeds, Sheffield and Newcastle.
