Assistant Manager

We have an amazing opportunity for an ambitious Assistant Manager to join our beautiful pub restaurant The Packhorse in Mapledurham, near Reading in Berkshire. A food led pub in a great location, we are very proud to be one of the top performing pubs in our company for sales, cost control and guest reviews.

As Assistant Manager you'll be helping to ensure the smooth running of our busy pub. That means you'll be serving guests in the bar & restaurant, helping to train & lead our lovely team and managing busy services & special events. You'll also have the chance to get involved in deciding what beers to have on tap, what gins & wines to stock, what events to run and, in conjunction with the Head Chef and Manager, what food to serve.

We have the freedom of a great independent local built on the idea that the most important thing is happy people (both guests and the team) but with the financial stability and savvy know-how of a big group backing us up whenever we need it. We’re also really keen on training and internal promotions as most of our best people came from within the business. Oh, and we like beer. A lot.

About you:

  • Passionate about food and drink
  • Previous experience as an Assistant Manager in a similar business
  • Hands on with a ‘can do’ attitude
  • Keen & eager to learn and, most importantly, to make people happy!

What we offer our Assistant Manager in return:

  • A competitive salary
  • Great tips
  • Genuine work/life balance
  • The freedom of helping to run a pub as an independent business
  • Excellent ongoing training and development
  • Personal and career growth opportunities
  • Discount and employee benefit scheme
  • Pension scheme
  • Flexibility to move between pubs and grow with the group

If that sounds like your cup of tea (or G&T) and you think you’ve got what it takes to be our new Trainee Assistant Manager then get in touch!
