This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious person to join us on our exciting journey to deliver a Taste for Life. Supporting the growing catering arm of our business, you’ll help us identify and maximise all events opportunities across the area, enhancing our range & quality of offer to existing and new customers.

We currently operate fifteen facilities (soon to be sixteen!) in East Cheshire, which includes 6 cafes, with many more sites & cafes planned as part of future developments. All of our sites have vending facilities, and offer children’s parties and occasional functions.

The initial focus will be on our Holmes Chapel, Wilmslow & Macclesfield sites which all have large-scale event capacity. This is a new position enabling you to review opportunities in all locations and look to consistently improve the events offer for both indoor and outdoor events, along with commercial catering opportunities in partnership with other businesses and clients.

You’ll manage events teams and support day to day operations, including vending management, as required. This is a hands on role leading the teams from initial booking through setup to delivery. You’ll be tasked to develop ancillary revenues from meetings, retail and parties.

It’s an exciting time to join us and help grow our Taste for Life brand. As a developing or aspiring manager with a passion for catering and customer excellence, you’ll be qualified to NVQ level 3 in business management and/or catering (or equivalent) and be willing to undertake further development – with all relevant CPD fully supported. A team player, you’ll have an eye for detail, and be a commercial thinker that is able to deliver quality services in a multi-site, fast pace environment. You’ll expect the highest standards and can supervise, inspire and motivate others to achieve these.

Closing Date for applications: 10th February 2019
