Designate General Manager

Apply
City of London

The Phoenix is looking for a Designate General Manager to join the team!

Due to internal succession this rare opportunity has arisen for a talented operator to join the team.

The Role:

As a Designate General Manager you'll work with the general manager to run the pub, hire, train and develop the team, plan events and take charge of everything when the general manager's away. You've already worked as an assistant manager in a busy pub for at least a year, and we're keen to know what you've learnt.
But it's more than that.

We're much more interested in who you are and what you're really like. What are you like to work with? How do you rally a team? Are you calm when things don't go to plan? What makes you laugh? We want to get to know you and your way of doing things. And find out how you can bring them to The Phoenix as a Designate General Manager.


Is this you?

- Pubs are your thing. You've worked as a manager for at least a year in a similar pub/bar restaurant.

- You're a friendly face who loves talking to customers and getting to know people.
- You have high standards when it comes to customer service.
- You get on well with clients and suppliers.
- You inspire people and know how to get a team working well together.
- You've got the basics covered: stock management, the quality of beer behind the bar, the systems that keep everything ticking.
- Your written and spoken English is sparkling.

What's in it for you?

- Competitive Salary + Bonus (…+ service charge)
- 31 days annual leave
- 33% discount across all MPCo and Greene King sites.

Who are we, anyway?
