Job Description

JSW has a fantastic new opportunity for a Venue Deputy Manager to oversee the operations of a multi-million-pound live venue and club in South London. Our client owns several live venues across the UK that host concerts, events, and sporting events. This particular venue is unique, and the vacancy offers an amazing role for the right candidate.

We are seeking an experienced Deputy Manager for this multifaceted venue, which includes multiple bars, a terrace, and various rooms. This is an excellent opportunity to be a Deputy Manager for a dynamic and forward-thinking company.

As the Deputy Manager, you will be second in command and responsible for health and safety, as well as people management, from recruitment to training and retention. The ideal candidate must be highly organised and able to think on their feet, as this role involves a diverse range of events and concerts.

The ideal candidate will have at least two years of proven experience at the deputy management level and a track record of managing large teams. You must possess sound financial acumen and have worked in a bar, venue, or nightclub with high stock holdings and a turnover of at least £2 million.

This role would suit a career deputy who is systematic and enjoys the administrative side of operations. You should also be accustomed to delivering operations to the highest standards, and your leadership skills and ability to lead a large team, including managers, will be key.

Please note that this role will involve late finishes. Therefore, only apply if you are prepared to work beyond midnight, based on a 45-hour contract per week. The salary is up to £40k depending on experience, plus tronc and a bonus.

Immediate interviews are available.

Due to the high volume of applications, we regret that only candidates meeting the above criteria will be contacted. To stay updated on all our new roles, please visit our website or follow @jswhospitality on X.
