General Manager - The Fat Walrus, New Cross, SE14
We’re an independent company looking for a General Manager to take over the day to day running of The Fat Walrus pub in New Cross due to the expansion of our business.
The pub opened in January 2016 and has been voted best pub in New Cross in the Time Out awards from its first year. We’re a stone’s throw from Goldsmiths University and cater for the staff and students as well as the local community.
Our food menu is based around burgers and other diner style with mac cheese and popcorn halloumi being amongst some of the best-selling dishes. There is a 65:35 split on wet and dry sales and the kitchen team prepare fresh food daily with only fries (and ice cream) being bought in frozen.
Until now, the pub has been run by myself and my business partner and we’re looking for someone driven and passionate to take over the reins while we focus on our new pizza joint Fat Slice.
The ideal candidate doesn’t necessarily need years of experience (although it certainly wouldn’t go against them) as a General manager but should be keen to learn and grow whilst developing the skills of the team around them. We will be around as much or a little is needed to make sure the business is running as it should and are happy to give time and attention to the right person should it be required.
Once the Fat Slice is off the ground, we’ll be focusing on growing the business again and are hoping to be looking for a 3rd site in early 2020. If the right candidate is with us, then there will be the opportunity to take on more responsibility and possible oversee more than one site.
If this sounds like the sort of opportunity you’re looking for, please get in touch.
