With a proven ability to drive sales you’ll strive to maximise the revenue and capitalise on seasonal menus and increased summer trade. With 130 over 5 floors and situated close to the popular Pleasure Hills tourist attraction the site attracts a great mix of guests, you’ll be passionate about leading the team to deliver excellent guest measures through fast paced services.

Here's your chance to be a Whitbread superstar! Leading, motivating and inspiring your very own team who make our food the hero of our business, you'll have all the autonomy you need to be a high flying GM. Working with the largest hospitality group in the UK – and winner of the Publican award for the best 51+ site employer – you'll simply wow us with your amazing people and P&L management skills. And amaze all our guests by ensuring your team delivers stunning service standards.

We call it Serving Up Great Memories. You'll call it doing what you do best. Getting to know your team, spotting strengths and working on weaknesses to empower everyone to become a Main Ingredient of your business. We're firmly focused on the guest experience. So we're looking for a pro-active, hands-on role model, a GM who can run a perfect shift every time without running out of steam, patience or innovative new ideas!

So, yep, you'll need some incredible leadership skills as you engage, inspire and motivate your team to deliver and delight day in, day out. Whilst keeping a close eye on the little details and, of course, the bigger financial picture.

But what's in it for you? Oh, just jaw-dropping further training and career development opportunities across our entire Group. A phenomenally fast-paced environment that's constantly evolving. The autonomy and accountability you crave. And all with a brand that we've invested our heart and soul into bringing the look, feel and customer offering bang up-to-date.

So where are you now? Well, we know that our future talent can come from any number of backgrounds. You might already be a GM but with nothing like the clout we'll give you. Or you're a Deputy Manager in the pub/restaurant, casual dining, retail or even high street coffee arena, ready to take your skills to the next level. Whichever, if you think you've got what it takes, we're the business that can get you flying higher, faster.

So let us know how you'll make an unbelievable impact on our people, our profits and, most importantly our guests.

Salary up to £37.5k and what's more we have the best bonus scheme in town.
