  • Forward thinking, stable & very successful organisation
  • Rare opportunity to lead from the front & make your mark

The Company

A well-established and successful group known for their forward-thinking and diverse offerings. They have been at the leading edge of quality food and hospitality for many years. Many operators also reference them as “great operators” and “Good to work for” because they surely look after their people.

It’s a brand you will want to be a part of. They have this strong brand recognition, in part, due to their aesthetic and unerring focus on detail & quality food and service.

The Role

You will be responsible for FOH operations within the group with the GMs reporting to you. There are many moving parts in this business, perhaps more than most. This incorporates premium casual, premium restaurants, retail, events as well and potentially coming soon wholesale production.

The business will be entering into a new phase within the next 18 months with new ventures, including a couple of new premium sites.

The role involves working closely with the owners, that in itself is a critical factor in finding the right fit for this position. Being able to slot into a role at this level, with an existing business and working closely with an owner requires someone with an excellent commercial level of acumen and strategy. Also, a high level of EQ and ability to know when to flex and when not to.

While it is undoubtedly an executive-level role, reflected in both title and remuneration, the culture of the company is one where you need to be on the ground to control and understand what’s happening within.

While the level of skills, knowledge and aptitude will dictate a match in terms of the experience of the applicants, this level of flexibility and expertise in working in a similar fluid management structure would be favourable.

Therefore, this is not purely an office job. We want someone who exudes hospitality and who wants to be on the floor seeing what is happening, getting to know the employees and have their finger on the pulse and eye on tomorrow.

The Successful Candidate

Must have a stable and robust background in hospitality management at a senior level. You will possess strong financial management skills and a demonstrated history in achieving profitability. Your leadership experience will have been gained in a group environment, and you will be able to balance the core demands of leading from the front operationally, being hands-on, while incorporating long-term strategy and structure.

Your experience in detailed analysis, monitoring of venue profitability, contributing ideas to growth strategy and business planning will be highly regarded. Naturally, you will possess a collaborate style, be an excellent communicator and able to deliver results.

Responsibilities also include successfully leading from the front. In addition, you need to be financially astute, operationally sound and strategically focused.

The Rewards

The successful candidate will join a well-respected and highly successful organisation. They will become part of a senior-level team with opportunities to grow.

The salary is commensurate with experience. We are in discussions with candidates up to $140K+S as a guide.
