We’re looking for a Head of Restaurants & Bars to join our pre-opening team at The Hoxton, Southwark, launching this Summer.
The Hoxton, Southwark will be our latest addition to The Hoxton family, and our third in London, only a skip & a hop away from the South Bank. There’ll be something for everyone: 192 rooms, a bustling ground-floor restaurant, bar and terrace, The Apartment (our unique meeting & events space), a stunning roof-top restaurant and bar with indoor and outdoor seating PLUS our brand-new coworking space spread over six floors. It’s going to be quite something!
Come and be part of an opening we’re super excited about!
What you’ll do…
Lead a dynamic pre-opening team of over 200 people, overseeing multiple bars and restaurants, including a stunning rooftop restaurant and a diverse events space
Drive revenue through strategic management of commercial initiatives with the leadership team. Your creativity will inspire the team to deliver beyond set expectations
Have a firm grip on the P&L and take ownership over the costs of the business, always striving to find efficient solutions whilst keeping the quality high and the experience top notch
Work closely with the Executive Chef on menu development and to ensure food quality and consistency is always where it should be
Both guest and team experience will be at the heart of all you do. You will lead from the front and your presence in the business will be felt by the team and guests alike
What we’re looking for…
A track record of leading large teams in restaurants, kitchens and bars; you’re a natural at inspiring trust and bringing others along on a journey
2+ years’ experience in a similar food and beverage management/director role, either across multiple sites or a single £10m+ revenue per year business
Multi departmental budgeting and forecasting experience; a clear understanding of the financial expectations of a successful restaurant and bar business
An ability to manage the budget on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. You’ll be expected to report results with a granular understanding of the ongoing trends of the business
Exceptional attention to detail in a fast-paced environment, juggling many things at once, but always dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s
You’re looking for a place where you can be you; no clones in suits here
Passion for hospitality – you’re all about creating memorable experiences for others, be they guests or colleagues
You’re not precious. We leave our egos at the door and help get shit done
You’re up for doing things differently and trying (almost) everything once
You want to be part of a team that works hard, supports each other and has fun along the way
What’s in it for you…
A performance related bonus on top of your salary
20 days holiday (plus bank holidays), pension and life insurance
A health cash plan, through which you can easily claim money back on things like dental, physiotherapy and contact lenses
Take care of your physical & mental wellbeing through a support help line, gym discounts, virtual GP surgeries and more
Treat yourself once in a while with lots of retail & hospitality perks through our partners
Goes without saying, but we’ll feed you during your shift
Excellent discounts across the Ennismore family for you and your nearest and dearest (even if you decide to leave us!)
Lots of opportunity to progress and switch it up as part of a global family of brands
Training to get you settled into your role, learning academies to broaden your skillset and development that helps you think, make and thrive at work
Extra time off to volunteer with one of our partner charities
Access to our Coworking space on evenings & weekends to work on your side-hustle
Regular team get togethers, from our team drinks to our (pretty special!) bi-annual parties – we know how to have a good time!
