Your new company

The brand has a history of providing a wide choice of great tasting food and has recently enjoyed a period of huge growth and development, making this a stimulating and fast moving environment to work in.

You will also receive specific training to ensure you are developing the people in your teams.

Commercial acumen is key in order to make decisions quickly on a daily basis, as is the ability to recognise potential issues in order to deal with them quickly and efficiently. You must have a background in Multi Site Management, ideally from a hospitality or food retail background having managed a large area previously, ideally 5-10 stores in order to be considered for this role.
