We are looking for an experienced General Manager that will lead a large, high footfall restaurant in central London. The role will require strong leadership of the FOH and BOH teams, a leader who will take full responsibility for the business, its financial performance, business process and service standards reporting directly to the operations manager.

The restaurant specializes in steak and drinks, welcoming you in a relaxed but fast paced environment. The company’s standards are very high, so you must be able to interact with guests, but at the same time be super-efficient and be able to multitask.

You will need to have previous experience and accomplishments in leading a restaurant of similar size and be able to demonstrate success in training and developing teams to deliver exceptional service whilst driving financial performance in a values-led business. You will need to create a business plan quarter to quarter and have a strong understanding of your PnL, how to react to financial challenges and drive success. You should be detailed and organised, work to a clear business plan and have relentless passion to get things right and impress customers with a great dining experience.

Why would you want this:

  • Be integral to an exciting forward thinking brand
  • Want to be a part of a business that is expanding
  • Take ownership as if the business was yours
  • Train and develop your team to deliver exceptional service
  • Love people with a selfless attitude to leadership
  • Build strong relationships with a strong local community
  • Be values led and join a values led business

  • Be able to demonstrate:

  • Demonstrate your ability to train, develop and lead a team
  • Demonstrate your previous accomplishments
  • Understand brand and values and how you will build this in your team
  • Demonstrate excellent communication skills
  • Demonstrate how you will deliver a high standard
  • Demonstrate strong business acumen, process and planning
  • Have detailed understanding of our PnL and set objectives

  • In return you will receive a salary of £33,000 - £35,000 per annum plus a potential 20% yearly bonus (6-7K)
