We need a personality who is confident in being the face of the restaurant and has the organsitaion to deliver the best service to our guests and develop our team with structured and continuous training.
You will be working a good 48-hour week split over 5 days with shift patterns to meet the needs of the business. We are also open over Christmas and the New Year.
In addition to working with a great team, our guests also need a mention. Our guests tend to be a delight, well mannered and respectful. You will see many of them multiple times throughout the year and will develop genuine relationships with them. They are usually well travelled and have the highest expectations and know what to expect when visiting the Nare. I mention this as for some this can be overwhelming.
