“We are committed to building our workforce and being a leading employer in Connecticut and in our industry, while other area companies are reducing their workforce,” said Lisa Shea, vice president of human resources for the SUBWAY® brand. “We have a large number of open positions across all functions of the business, and we’re looking for dedicated individuals to join our collaborative team.”

Subway has added more than a dozen key team members to its Milford Headquarters team in the areas of digital marketing, technology, restaurant operations, guest care, and public relations, according to the press release. The new hires come amidst global expansion in an effort to support the franchisees of nearly 45,000 restaurants and their millions of guests around the world, the press release states.

Enhancing their presence in the digital space is a major focus, company officials said.

The company recently hired a director of customer engagement to focus on transforming how the brand interacts and engages with guests on a daily basis, the press release states. Director roles have also been recently filled in global public relations and restaurant operations, both of which are seeking additional team members.
