Head of Food and Beverage South East up to 60K + Bonus

We are looking for a Head of Food and Beverage to review and relaunch the food and beverage offer for a market leading brand within the leisure industry. My client is looking to significantly enhance the scope and quality of the hospitality offering bringing to market a compelling and on trend food and drinks menu to a wide-ranging customer base that includes corporate days and functions, stag and hen do's and children's parties.

Reporting into the board the successful candidate will be responsible for:

  • Menu and recipe development, creating an exciting F&B offer within operational constraints.
  • To design and layout a compelling clubroom proposition.
  • To optimise GPs linked to ease of production and service
  • Food & Beverage stock management processes including ordering, stock counts and audits
  • Sourcing group-wide suppliers and negotiating terms.
  • To have an in-depth knowledge of allergens and government legislation
  • Responsible for the H&S processes and documentation for all F&B operations
  • Confident with training, motivating and influencing teams at all levels.
  • Daily, weekly, and monthly reporting of financial KPI's.
  • Set labour scheduling models and maintaining budgeted labour levels.
  • Develop and manage a regional based team to assist in the delivery of the F&B Strategy.
  • Oversee the general maintenance schedule of the F&B equipment.

We are keen to hear from candidates who have held a similar position within a multi-site branded hospitality offering from the high street or a similar family entertainment proposition. You will be directly accountable to the board and will need to demonstrate well developed financial and modelling skills to secure sign off and to deliver a group wide roll-out strategy within agreed timelines and to budget.

In addition to a basic salary of up to 60K plus bonus benefits include a company car and private health care. Head office is based in Surrey and there will be a requirement to typically be in head office one day a week so base location can be flexible.

Interviews are immediately available.
