Deputy Manager

Railway Hotel

WorthingPlus Bonus, Plus Tips Full time

The Railway Hotel is the latest gem in Portobello's portfolio.

A beautifully refurbished pub, dining & hotel, A stones throw from the pier in Worthing and right opposite the mainline station.

We expect the Railway to be the place where people meet, to eat, drink and have a good old catch up, with family, friends and colleagues, our offer will be premium and delivered with excellence, every-time.

Our food will be fresh & seasonal, with a good mixture of pub classics and 'on trend' dishes.

Pub Specifics

The Railway will boast 35 boutique hotel rooms, so a hotel back ground is preferred, but by no means essential.

We expect the business to take at least £40k per week, so candidates should have experience running pubs with a decent food / liquor split.

The pub is a major refurbishment, and has been closed for 6 months whilst the builders have been on site, so we need someone with a 'can do' attitude, plenty of personality and that is prepared to walk the streets, beaches & pier to get to know 'their customers'

What you offer us?

You will be truly passionate about the industry that we know and love- hospitality! People are at the forefront of all of our pubs and we need you to assist our amazing general managers in the day to day running of your business. You will be an inspirational leader at all times, whether running a breakfast shift, or a bustling Friday night. Setting the example for our front of house team, you will make sure that the guests achieve the best hospitality experience that Brixton has to offer. Of course, being the deputy manager, this will mean stepping up in the absence of the general manager, whether that is on a day off, or running the pub for a couple of weeks to cover holiday times.

You will be given varying responsibilities in your role, maybe looking after driving sales at a particular time of week, the leader of all things training, or controlling any number of financial KPI’s, so an all rounder of hospitality is a must. You will also have your own projects to work on, to show your are ready to make sure the business is continually growing.

Finally, we want our deputy managers to form our strong bench. We want our deputies to be the future generation of general managers, so the passion and drive to grow their career as well as the pubs sales, is a must!
