What are you required to bring to the table?

You need to have the ability to run busy, high end and fast-paced restaurant.  Prepared to step in when required is a must. Ideally, it’s about having minimal fuss and keeping the staff and customers happy.

We are looking for that really warm and welcoming personality. In addition, someone that can make the guests from all walks feel comfortable and turn into loyal customers.  Furthermore, you must be ready to do that school approach of “touching” all the tables and thanking guests as they leave.

What we are looking for:

We are looking for a strong Maitre D / Floor Manager / Restaurant Manager with ideal experience in a busy upmarket restaurant. Also, experienced working in a mid-size company structure at a management level is a plus point. Even more ideal is if you’re from a busy “brasserie” style 1 Hat-ish service. Knowledge, charm and when required, the ability to be firm are all attributes that the client would like to see in their next Manager.

What can you expect?

In terms of hours, it would typically be 42-45 hours. Additionally, there are no late finishes. Usually out by 11.30 pm on a close. Salary and tips are around *$1700 to more on a good week.
