We are looking for someone ideally with previous experience, either in a manager or supervisor role, within a busy hospitality environment.

  • Ensuring all legal obligations concerning licensing, environmental health, health and safety and fire are met.
  • Leading by example, inspiring staff to work to their full potential.
  • Addressing any day-to-day issues that may arise and making reasonable efforts to prevent them.
