By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 16 May 2018
A Cleethorpes fish and chip restaurant is set to take on 50 new staff as it prepares for a "very busy summer".
Papas Fish & Chips, which opened on Cleethorpes Pier in April last year, is hiring fryers, servers and other staff to work in its resort eatery.
The family firm is creating 100 new jobs in total with a further 50 being lined up at its new Hull city centre branch.
Papas, which also has branches in Willerby, Bilton and Scarborough, says it has bucked the trend to have a very successful winter season, following on from an equally busy summer last year.

Co-owner Dino Papas explained how the restaurant is in need of fryers and servers as well as staff to work in the takeaway. Talking about the qualities the team are on the lookout for, he said: "We're looking for friendly and polite individuals that are presentable, nice people to come work with us."
He added: "We're all about personality over abilities. You don't have to be a certain age or sex, we are just looking for the right person for the right job.
"We can train you up. All we ask is that you work with us and that you're a happy person, and we will make sure you get to the level you need to be at."
People who are interested in applying can do so via the Papas website. However, Dino suggests the best way is to pop in with a CV and have a chat with one of the team.
News of the job creation for Cleethorpes comes on the same day new figures show the area has almost double the national average of unemployment benefit claimants, making the jobs boost a welcome one for North East Lincolnshire.
