The Role

We need someone who thrives on large scale operations and has experience working in a high volume restaurant. Having expertise in openings is preferable. You’ll not only be responsible in the day-to-day running of the venue but also be actively involved in the fundamentals of the business, setting budgets, forecasting and having a full understanding of the P & L.

As a restaurant general manager, you’ll also have influence in regular marketing activities and VIP programs.  This company prides itself on looking after their staff, so employee engagement and staff retention is rewarded.  There is a lot of support in the role, including a group manager and group wine director.

The Required Experience

Ideally, you’ll come from a highly professional background, where giving top-notch but relaxed service to a corporate crowd is second nature.  This is perfect for someone looking for that next move and who is career targeted and hungry to learn about the financials of a successful business. This company is all about nurturing and training the right talent.

The right restaurant general manager must have strength in personality, confidence running a large restaurant floor, and a dynamic presence to deal with a myriad of situations.

Rewards

This group not only recognize the need to nurture talent but also the need to retain it.  Offering a 50-hour week with a work-life balance of mostly single shifts and a couple of 9-5 days thrown into the mix gives the manager time to enjoy a life outside the business.  This is all rewarded with a competitive salary and consistently good tips.
