General Manager

Apply
Manchester

Metropolitan Pub Company is super excited to welcome our first pub in Manchester, The Fountain House! We are looking for a talented General Manager to lead our exciting new venture up North!

The Fountain House will bring fresh, seasonal and innovative premium gastro pub food, premium wine and craft beer selections alongside a charming pub experience to the heart of Manchester. When it reopens in September, The Fountain House will initially open three of its five storeys to customers - with the lower ground floor for premium gastropub dining, a charming pub experience on the ground floor and private dining and function space for weddings and meetings on the first floor.

The Role:

As a General Manager, you call the shots and make sure everything's spot-on. What's on the menu? You decide. You'll work with our Food 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 you once more.

So if you've got the get-up-and-go to run your own business, you're full of ideas and know what an AMAZING guest experience looks like, then this could be your big chance. As a General Manager you will 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 General 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.

What's in it for you?

- Competitive Salary + Bonus (…+ service charge)
- 31 days annual leave
- 33% discount across all MPCo and Greene King sites
- 25% Friends and Family Discount Scheme
- 50% off stays at our amazing hotels!
- Team Member Benefits- our online scheme where you can get discounts from hundreds of suppliers and retailers.
- A career: where are you heading next? We'll help you get there.
- A top-class management leadership programme.
- The chance to run your own business with the right support and experience to help you make it a success.
- 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.
- … and many more!
