About New World Trading Company

New World Trading Company (NWTC) is made up of seven restaurant brands serving a whole host of clients from all walks of life.

NWTC is constantly breaking the mould on what it means to be a pub, bar or restaurant in the modern world of hospitality. Constantly questioning, continuously exploring and forever challenging what it means to provide impeccable service and unrivalled experiences. In joining this company, employees are becoming part of something bigger in a team of like-minded people who strive to develop themselves and those around them.

NWTC has come a long way in a few short years, with 26 sites, eight brands and a team of around 1500 people who work together to challenge the status quo.

There is no mountain too high or suggestion too rogue, it is a place for creative thinkers, concoction makers and trendsetters. It is a place for dogs, families and co-worker parties. A place to develop, learn, train and immerse yourself in a 'New World' culture.

The stories of progression within their teams are everywhere, from bartenders into ops managers, KP's into head chefs. It is this internal progression that creates a culture within their sites, as they take the best of the best and promote them to help grow and expand the company. This links directly into the first part of their ethos 'to find and develop like-minded people', which they will continue to do as their culture, company and personality grows with each new member of staff.
