Pizza Express hiring 1,000 workers as restaurants start reopening

The chain reopened 118 of its restaurants on 12 April.

Pizza Express is looking to hire 1,000 new workers ahead of their planned reopening of outlets across the UK starting next month.

The new jobs are set to come just six months after the chain revealed plans to cut 1,300 jobs across their 360 UK restaurants as part of a restructuring.

This was announced after it unveiled a company voluntary arrangement (CVA) that saw the closure of over 70 restaurants and loss of 1,100 jobs.

The chain reopened 118 of its restaurants on 12 April after the government lifted outdoor dining restrictions.

Another 24 restaurants will open in England for al-fresco dining from 29 April.
