Fantastic opportunity for an enthusiastic and driven GM to work in a seriously 'cool' 'hip' quality coffee shop/roastery and cafe in Holborn or Islington!!

Our client now has 9 exciting sites across central and east London, each smashing out coffee, cocktails and food day to night, and last year they opened their own roastery and training lab in Shoreditch.


We are crazy busy coffee shops by day serving awesome Espresso alongside simple, seasonal food, and lively cocktail bars and restaurant by night, serving the best Espresso Martini's you've ever tasted! We have two GM roles available, in one of our cafe/bar sites and in our newest restaurant. Attached to our good friends The Hoxton Hotel, Holborn Grind is a lively cafe by day and cocktail bar with sharing plates menu by night. The newest member of the Grind family is our restaurant Exmouth Market Grind, a beautiful corner restaurant with lots of outdoor space to soak up the summer sunshine over cocktails & brunch.

The atmosphere in our Grinds is fast-paced and vibrant, with strong emphasis on quality coffee, seasonal food, cocktails and always the best service.


We're looking for the next generation of General Manager here at Grind. At Grind we serve fresh, seasonal produce, alongside our coffee roasted by us in Shoreditch and a cocktail menu of Grind classics, and we look for passionate and talented individuals to lead our energetic sites.

As General Manager you will be able to demonstrate a good all around approach to running a fast paced restaurant. Ideally we’re looking for someone who can keep their cool, develop their team around them and, most importantly, make sure the customers and team have fun! Of course we expect the usual stuff; being able to run a great restaurant or espresso bar in style and bring in your P&L, but running a Grind is so much more. It's about the buzz, the vibe and the energy.

If this gets you going we would love to hear from you, please email your CV and a cover letter.
