Salary: Competitive Salary (with a bonus on top)
5 Charles Street
Mayfair, GREATER LONDON, W1J 5DF
Recruiter: Metropolitan Pub Company
Job id: req4969
The Footman in Mayfair is looking for a General Manager to join the fabulous team.
Originally called The Running Horse, The Footman is one of the oldest Pubs in London. A beautiful three floored pub and dining room catering for the people of Mayfair and beyond.
With BIG refurbishment plans ahead, we are on the lookout for a stylish & confident General Manager who has a BIG personality and is ready for their next exciting challenge.
As a General manager, you call the shots and make sure everything’s spot-on. What’s on the menu? You decide. You’ll work with the Head of Food Development to plan, tweak and change it every season. What weekly events are you running? What will you do for Valentine’s? Again, it’s up to the General Manager. Who’s working for you and what are they going to do next? Over to you once more.
So if you’ve got the get-up-and-go to run your own business, you’re full of ideas and you’re laid back and cheery with customers, then this could be your big chance. You’ll take charge, and we’ll be on hand to make sure everything goes smoothly.
Is this you?
- Pubs are your thing. You’ve worked as a manager for at least a year in a similar pub/bar restaurant.
- You stay one step ahead, setting clear goals for you, your pub and your team. You’re a planner and you meet your deadlines, every time.
- You’re full of ideas and know how to make them happen (and have proof that they worked in the past).
- You’re a friendly face who loves talking to customers and getting to know people.
- You have high standards when it comes to customer service.
- You get on well with clients and suppliers.
- You inspire people and know how to get a team working well together.
- You’ve got the basics covered: stock management, the quality of beer behind the bar, the systems that keep everything ticking.
- Your written and spoken English is sparkling.
What’s in it for you?
- A salary up there with the best of the rest.
- A bonus plan.
- A career: where are you heading next? We’ll help you get there.
- Paid holidays.
- Perks across the company.
- A top-class management leadership programme.
- The chance to run your own business with the right support and experience to help you make it a success.
