Costa recruits 2,000

Coffee chain Costa Coffee has announced a 5% pay rise for 14,500 staff working at its company-owned stores in the UK.
The coffee chain is also recruiting 2,000 more people due to rising demand following the ease of Covid restrictions.
Costa said the pay rise was to thank staff for their hard work during the pandemic.
This follows redundancies last year when the coffee chain was forced to cut costs.
In September 2020, Costa put up to 1,650 jobs at risk after demand failed to rebound following the first coronavirus lockdown. In the end it made 609 people redundant.
The coffee chain said it now needs more staff to support new stores and rising demand as it prepares for the typically-busy festive period.
