SERVICE MANAGER WANTED!

Jano Bistro is a One-Hat rated restaurant, located in a cosy and lovingly restored heritage cottage. We serve a small, seasonally-inspired menu that is modern and innovative, where guests can choose to dine a-la-carte or indulge in our Degustation menu. We were Cuisine Runner-Up Best New Restaurant and received our first Hat after 6 months of opening, and are continuously evolving and pushing boundaries. We are on the hunt for an experienced service manager to join our Jano family, who is just as passionate and driven as we are to achieve our potential! 

This is a hand-on role which requires a willingness to be involved in all aspects of service as a leader, taking absolute pride in the presentation of the restaurant, as well as developing FOH standards and procedures. You will assist in running the day-to-day FOH operations, beverage stock management, training and overseeing one other staff member and always ensuring a smooth and excellent service. A love for food, wine and hospitality is a must, as well as a genuine passion for exceeding customer expectations. Our ideal service manager will possess a good knowledge of wines, beers and other beverages, a current Duty Manager/LCQ Certificate, and some barista skills, but these are not essential as training can be provided.

Our ideal candidate will have the following qualifications and skills:

- A minimum of 3 years’ experience in the hospitality industry
- Experience in a-la-carte or fine-dining service
- Current Duty Managers/LCQ Certificate with some barista skills
- Good knowledge and interest in wines and other beverages
- A love of food, wine and hospitality service
- Exceptional time-management and organisational skills
- Ability to multi-task and work calmly under pressure
- Experience in managing small teams and working independently with confidence
- Well-presented, with a warm and engaging personality.

This role provides a fantastic opportunity grow and evolve with the restaurant, and be a part of a dynamic and supportive working environment where you are encouraged to make your mark in the hospitality scene. The restaurant seats up to 30 guests, and is open 5 nights/week so you will have 2 days off in a row and your mornings to mid-afternoons free. We are also open to taking someone on board who is a top-notch Senior Waiter/Maitre D' who is eager to step up, has a hunger for knowledge, and tons of drive and initiative.

If this sounds like you, then hop to it and lets have a chat!
