You will need to have experience of overseeing multi-site business within the retail or contract catering arena. The business is mainly fixed price, with a number of cost plus and commercial contracts, so having first-hand experience of managing a variety of budgets is essential.

As Area Manager you will report in to an established Operations Director.  This is a front line role so it is essential that you have experience and a natural flair for forming strong relationships with multi-site clients and also teams with a broad range of requirements.  You will need to be competent in communication at all levels, as you will be the key link between your clients, your field based teams and head office functions such as Accounts, HR and purchasing.

This company have a strong reputation for service and food, so your values and passions must mirror this. Being an independently owner-operated business, their culture and style is fluid and not governed by process and policy, so again you will need to demonstrate you work effectively within this culture.

We are looking for a strong leader, someone who is passionate about people, food and service.  You will need to have strong values when it comes to client delivery and will most certainly need to be into the detail.

In summary, you will need to demonstrate the following:

  • ability and interest in being hands on and visible in your sites
  • a genuine interest in fresh food
  • a natural leader who gains follow-ship
  • a logical problem solver, able to think on your feet
  • good at forging and maintaining client relationships
  • strong on finance and report writing
  • a team player with a genuine interest in developing others
  • experience at multi-site level within contract catering

This is a superb opportunity to join a passionate and standards-driven contract catering company.
