A new Subway opening in Orpington is looking for ‘sandwich artists’ to join the store.

The shop will be on the High Street and, according to their head office, will open its doors sometime around the middle of October so long as building work goes to plan.

An advert was posted on classifieds website Gumtree that said the company is looking for ‘sandwich artists.’

Sandwich artists are the employees who make sandwiches behind the counter.

The advert said: “Sandwich Artists™ have a positive outlook, thrive in a busy work environment and are keen to learn the art of great sandwich making.

"You will work well as part of a team, making delicious sandwiches and salads to customer requirements.”

The news of the opening was met well on social media.

Karen Wheller, who was selected for Lewisham West and Penge in the general election this year, said on Facebook: “all my dreams are coming true.”
