  • Oversee all day-to-day operations including shift management, cash and stock handling, sales targets, and overall presentation
  • Be responsible for training and ongoing team development
  • Be responsible for rostering and labour cost management
  • Implement processes and standards to ensure all front-of-house operations run effectively and seamlessly
  • Ensure the customer service is of the highest standard
  • Build a strong rapport with all guests and clients
Candidate Profile

To be successful in this role you will have:
  • Experience as a Venue or General Manager within a premium establishment
  • A highly structured and organised approach, managing multiple tasks simultaneously
  • Exceptional management skills and the ability to work autonomously
  • Strong financial awareness especially in regard to COGs, forecasting, and labour
  • A proven track record in influencing people and achieving success through team members
  • Above all, a genuine passion for hospitality and people
