What you offer us?

Our General Managers work closely with the operations team to manage “their” business.

We just ask for a few things; that you will lead and inspire your team from the front, finding innovative ways to delight your guests. You will ensure each and every person that walks through our doors, receives the greatest hospitality, and every piece of food and drink that passes their lips is the freshest and finest quality that Worthing has to offer.

With this in mind, you will work closely with your management team, including your head chef, so that you can partner the finest food with the drinks offer and atmosphere that you will be the beating heart of every shift.

You will be fully responsible for the pubs P&L, so

converting sales to profit is also important. You will have an eagle eye for

detail, ensuring our guests journey from beginning to end will leave them

wanting more.

You will be at the forefront of training your team, with a genuine passion to develop and nurture your future stars and in turn, take your business forward. We believe in developing a strong bench, having a succession plan in place to reduce any recruitment needs and in turn develop our people into the next Portobello General Managers.

You will demonstrate all of this by upholding our company values of honesty, integrity and fairness with our teams, our guests and anyone else associated with our business.
