General Manager

Apply
London

Part go-getter (you're full of ideas)?
Part people pleaser (everyone mucks in)?
Part business brain (you make the numbers add up)?

All three? When can you start?

The Crabtree is looking for its next General Manager!

The Crabtree is an iconic pub situated on the quietest and most picturesque stretch of the Thames between Hammersmith & Putney bridges.

Home to an award-winning comedy club, an acclaimed restaurant, the largest pub quiz in West London, live music and an always impressive, ever changing line up of guest ales, The Crabtree really is one of the best pubs in London!

This is a fantastic and rare opportunity for a skilled operator to join MPCo. at an exciting time of growth!

Up to £50,000 gross per annum + service charge + bonus + stunning Live in accommodation.

The Role:

As General manager, you call the shots and make sure everything's spot-on. What's on the menu? You decide. You'll work with the food development team to plan, tweak and change it every season. What weekly events are you running? What will you do for Valentine's? Again, it's up to you. Who's working for you and what are they going to do next? Over to the General Manager once more.

So if you've got the get-up-and-go to run your own business, you're full of ideas and you're laidback and cheery with customers, then this could be your big chance. You'll take charge, and we'll be on hand to make sure everything goes smoothly.

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 stay one step ahead, setting clear goals for you, your pub and your team. You're a planner and you meet your deadlines, every time.
- You're full of ideas and know how to make them happen (and have proof that they worked in the past).
- 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)
- 33% discount across all MPCo and Greene King sites
- 25% Friends and Family Discount Scheme
- 50% off stays at our amazing hotels!
- 31 days annual leave
- A top-class management leadership programme.
- A career: Where are you heading next? We'll help you get there.
- As we are part of the CK family- all our employees receive up to 30% discount at Superdrug and up to 50% off Three mobile.
- Wagestream- allowing you to access up to 50% of your wages ahead of payday.
- Team Member Benefits- our online scheme where you can get discounts from hundreds of suppliers and retailers.


Who are we, anyway?

We're Metropolitan Pub Company (or MPCo. for short). We're part of Greene King, but they leave us to it. We're a collection of over 60 premium pubs in and around London: neighbourhood locals, city pubs and foodie ones. We are good people. We are positive, with infectious enthusiasm.
