Ms Hollie Price
Job Function
General Manager
Contract Type
Full Time

We have a rare and exciting opportunity for a General Manager to join one of our prestigious clients based in Silverstone.

This role is something a little bit different, we have been lucky enough to work closely with Porsche for a number of years and we currently work with them to provide the Catering and Events within their Porsche Experience Centre based at Silverstone Circuit, close to Towcester.

As the General Manager you will manage the front and back of house operation which is open 7 days per week. You will be a confident operator who has gained experience working within a fast paced environment and delivered exceptional service as well as outstanding food.

This role would suit someone who has worked within high end hospitality, within conferencing, hotels or leisure space at a management level. You will manage a team of 17 and this will increase during busier events during the year.
