  • Restaurant Supervisor

    Food & Beverage Supervisor

    Glenapp’s operational structure is different to most hotels. Glenapp’s restaurant supervisor will be primarily responsible for the daily operations within our dining rooms.   This is a very hands-on role working in our dining rooms whilst liaising with and assisting other operational hotel departments – i.e. Housekeeping, Maintenance, Guest Services and Reception.  However, the job also entails other requirements as well due to this difference in structure.

    Some examples of this would be…

    • There is no reception desk at Glenapp – instead our Restaurant Team assist the Operations Team with checking in and out guests, meeting and greeting and showing them their rooms.
    • There is no bar at Glenapp – instead the FOH team of butlers and waiting staff are on hand at all times to cater for all their guest’s needs.
    • There is no formal concierge service at Glenapp and our Restaurant Team assist with tasks such as shoe polishing, laundry services, organising newspapers and assisting with luggage

    Your ‘Raison D’etre’ in this role is …

    • To manage the daily operation of the dining area in accordance with operating policies.
    • To ‘plan ahead’ and increase business efficiency and customer satisfaction whilst doing so by effectively forecasting restaurant needs.
    • To deliver 5-star + guest service … consistently.
    • To exceed guest’s expectations … continually.
    • To manage, motivate and lead a small team of enthusiastic colleagues.
    • To work within all current procedures and policies that enable us to deliver the ‘Glenapp magic’.
    • To shift priorities and goals as work demands change.
    • To ensure that our products and service delivery offerings are ‘best in class’.

    What we would like:

    • Proven 5-star experience in hotel restaurant management, preferably in another 5-star small hotel.
    • Fine dining experience.
    • Proven knowledge of both FOH and F&B operations.
    • Proven leadership skills.
    • Ability to mentor and develop
    • Proven experience of working positively with change
    • Ability to work under pressure
    • Happy to work un-social hours
    • Able to interact with HNW guests
    • Understands what ‘great’ looks like.
