This is why we seek to appoint an exceptional person to join our team and live and breathe our values.

Working closely with the General Manager, the ideal candidate will have had or have had recent experience in very busy, highly rated modern style restaurant who perhaps, needs to take the next step in their career development. They are ready to prove what they can achieve.

Their key attributes will be to be a hands-on operator, be reliable, comfortable in accepting responsibility and in making decisions, have a strong work ethic and relish this opportunity. 

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Day-to-day management of the Restaurant & Bar operation
  • Developing positive business relationships with customers with the aim of developing a strong repeat business clientele. 
  • Providing leadership in and assisting with the development and implementation of the Restaurant & Bar’s strategic plan. 
  • Being responsible for the maximization of the profit contribution of the beverage department.
  • Responsible for recruiting, inducting, training and performance managing of all front of house staff 
  • Ensuring Guest Satisfaction levels are within the stipulated range.
  • Working very closely with the hotel’s General Manager and other members of the Hotel’s executive team to ensure a harmonious relationship exists between the various departments.

  • You will have the opportunity to work alongside fellow recognised industry professionals.
  • You will be given responsibility and the freedom to present ideas on how to best operate the Food & Beverage service element of the Restaurant. 
  • We will recognise your potential as we continue to grow our company and the people who work in it.
