The Company

This company is a very well established and successful group.  They are known for their forward-thinking unwavering quality to establish and maintained over many years.Many operators also reference them as “the bar” to be achieved when it comes to longevity, turnover and quality in the Sydney market.

The Role

Reporting to the CEO, you will be responsible for FOH operations within the group.  There are many moving parts in this business, perhaps more than most.The role will see you working very closely with the CEO; a role that will be deeply rewarding as they are one of Sydney’s best operators.

Being able to slot into a role at this level, with an existing business and working closely with a very strong and long-standing team 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. As a guide, the previous incumbent has been about 50/50 in terms of hands-on/hands-off.

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. In short, it’s 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.

This is a highly structured and organised business and naturally, you will need to be able to adapt and contribute in this area.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 profitability, contributing ideas to growth strategy and business planning will be highly regarded.  Naturally, you will possess a collaborative style, be an excellent communicator and able to deliver results.

You will be very comfortable leading from the front, financially astute, operationally sound and strategically focused.

The Rewards

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