Previous experience within a leadership position in a bar or restaurant environment may provide you with an insight into the day to day responsibilities, however, we personally believe our Restaurant Team Leaders are truly unique and with or without experience you could become an invaluable member of our ‘bright and breezy’ team provided you have the right attitude and embrace our values.
We welcome team members with hospitality qualifications however these are not a requirement for joining our ‘bright and breezy’ team.
