The new drive-through Costa Coffee store is scheduled to open upon completion of the multi-million pound Gateway Retail Park, situated on Tower Road.

Whitbread PLC, the hospitality company which owns Costa, is looking for a 'people-person' with existing management skills in retail, hospitality or leisure.

Its job advert says the store manager will be 'commercially savvy' and passionate when it comes to 'recruiting, developing and empowering your team.'

The £9.3m redevelopment is breathing new life into the former factory site, derelict for many years since its closure in 2002.
