General Manager – daytime hours – package £35,000 –
This fabulous delicatessen, farm shop and cafe are set within a beautiful wine estate with far reaching views. During Covid the team have been making improvements and developing the site, so now need a professional General Manager to oversee the smooth running of the opening.
The food offering will have an emphasis on local produce and the delicatessen will stock a range of cheeses and farm produce. Wine of course will also play a large role, so a genuine interest and some knowledge would be a huge advantage.
The café will be open during the day from 9am and the service will be relaxed, although the highest level of customer service will still be expected throughout the establishment. There will also be wine tastings, private dining, and the occasional function, if you were interested in getting more involved with the wine estate.
The ideal candidate will have previous experience within a busy restaurant, understand the importance of the customer journey, creating joy from the moment they arrive. They will also require excellent man-management skills, training, mentoring, and inspiring the team to make a great working atmosphere where everyone can thrive.

Benefits include a generous salary, plus tronc and bonus, daytime hours working 5 days a week and the opportunity to be part of this new, dynamic delicatessen and cafe team, where you’ll have the opportunity to influence the success of the business.
