Apply
West End

General Manager - Footman (W1J 5DF)
Salary: 45,000.00 - 50,000.00 (with a bonus on top)
Location:
5 Charles Street
Mayfair, GREATER LONDON, W1J 5DF
United Kingdom
Recruiter: Metropolitan Pub Company
Job id: req8379

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 Footman is looking for a General Manager to lead the team!

One of the oldest pubs in London, the Footman has been in place since 1749. Originally called The Running Horse it was frequented by the footmen who were in service to the households of Mayfair.

This is an amazing opportunity to join Metropolitan Pub Company in one of our iconic Mayfair pubs.



As manager, you call the shots and make sure everything's spot-on. What's on the menu? You decide. You'll work with the head chef 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 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)
- 31 days annual leave
- 33% discount across all MPCo and Greene King sites.
