Job Description

NEW YEAR amazing New opportunity!

We are on the hunt for a Junior Area Manager for an expanding Branded Restaurant and bar group which delivers both table and QSR offering. My client has over 100 branded restaurants and bars across the UK. You would be responsible for eight restaurants and bars throughout their operation in Kent, including New openings in 2023. 

You will have overall responsibility for budgeting, P&L and stock control. The role will be given a huge amount of autonomy to meet and exceed your budget so we need individuals who are prepared to go the extra mile to ensure that the large teams of managers and team members all work to achieve the areas targets. My client needs you to ensure the overall experience of the diners who come into the restaurants and bars is excellent across all departments. You will have to work under considerable pressure during peak periods and the customer feedback surveys will need to be outstanding.  

You must have a proven track record of running multiple high volume branded restaurant operations, have outstanding leadership qualities and communication skills and masses of personality. Ideally you will have a strong sales background and be able to drive sales by coaching managers. Strong Profit and Loss experience is essential since the key to success is that you can deliver and manage both GPs and bottom line profit across the operation. You will also need to demonstrate excellent people-management and administrative skills. 

This role does offer accommodation which is available for 6 month period to enable the smooth transition of any relocation.   

The rewards for outperforming are second to none and it would be realistic to expect a bonus of at least 25% of basic salary for beating your bottom line targets and achieving personal KPI’s.

Interviews are immediately available.

Due to the high volume of applications we regret that only those candidates meeting the above criteria will be contacted and please ensure you are kept up to date with all our new roles visit our website or follow jswhospitality on Twitter
