We looking for a live-in manager to manage one of our four pub restaurants six miles outside of Colchester.

We are an independent company and allow managers considerable discretion to manage each establishment as they prefer and upon success, to share in the profits.

The pub is owned freehold and free of tie. The premises consist of an old timber and plaster building in a large village on a busy route but close to the countryside. There is an attractive 70 cover restaurant along with an open bar and snug and also six letting rooms.

The Manager is responsible for all areas of the business including staff hiring, events, cellar management and overseeing the chefs, promotion of the business and liaising with the external book keeper and stock takers. Our policy is to let good managers to do what they do best and not to interfere. The whole building - including the kitchen - has been renovated well and as a consequence revenue in the last two years has doubled. This has involved a significant shift in the client base which is now one third local and two thirds from over five miles away and about 55% women.The standard of the food offering is high.

There is a good package which includes: a competitive salary, free accommodation (including both rates and utilities together with a profit-related bonus scheme.

The preferred candidate must have experience but this can be as little as ten years so may be relatively young. We want a manager who has experience in pubs, restaurants and small hotels but is ready to strike out and run his/her own show with a high level of autonomy. A valid licence is required as well as decent GCSEs especially in English and maths.
