Contract Type
Full Time
Our client operates a multi-faceted hospitality venue in a prime location on the Exmouth seafront, with a turnover of over £2m. Facilities include 3 restaurants, a superb 200-seater function room with stunning views of the coast and Exe Estuary, a 12-lane ten-pin bowling alley, a large soft play zone and a SEGA amusement arcade. The venue opened in 2015 but has yet to fulfil its potential. A dynamic, business-focused General Manager is now required to take the facility to the next level. Reporting directly to the group CEO and Board, you will have significant autonomy and responsibility. The post will also include the oversight of a 500-seater, traditional entertainment facility with an 80-seater restaurant. Both venues are adjacent on the seafront and form the gateway to a proposed leisure redevelopment area, with works commencing in 2018. You will provide strategic direction for all areas to achieve or exceed growth, key performance and 'bottom line’ financial targets. You will have effective leadership skills and motivational qualities, and be ambitious, determined, goal-orientated and a team player. You will have significant experience having managed a large multi-functional hospitality or entertainment facility, or a group of facilities. Your hours of work will be flexible, including some weekends and evenings
