YOU! Operations Director! Don’t wait until the New Year to become the ‘new you’. Start right now and lets move into 2022 with a purpose!

A contemporary hospitality business is experiencing exceptional growth as they get ready to open their eighth site. With it, brings a desire to add some additional expertise in the form of an Operations Director, to a team of high-achieving Chefs, GMs, Events Managers, site teams and commercial innovators.

The CEO knows that to solidify his ambitions and future growth strategy, an Operations Director is now required. Responsible for the senior management team, you can bring consistency and streamlined processes to maintain company culture, whilst simultaneously ensuring the smooth running of the restaurants.

With six direct reports from Finance, Ops Manager, Head of Food, Head of Marketing and beyond, there are 160 people over nine locations (seven sites, one CPU and a head office) that would benefit from your leadership. You’ll enjoy working on scalability and implementing new processes within each site, as well as for new opening schedules. Full project management jurisdiction as you deploy new tech and trusted SOPs for optimal performance. It’s all here, ready and waiting for you.

This position will elicit your proactivity and positivity. You’ll have vast experience working across multiple hospitality sites. The seven, soon to be eight, Café restaurants are home county locations mainly, with plans to expand further across Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Surrey and Hertfordshire as they open more in time to come. This role has you on site, in person, a face not just a name as you lead the future with them all on-board.

The CPU has a slick team, and a Head of Food, bringing new innovations and creativity to menus for breakfast and lunch, alongside a home delivery service from the Dark Kitchen. The canvas here isn’t completely blank, but it's been prepped well for you.

You will already have enjoyed a successful career so far, as a multi-site operator, but your local mindset will enable your hands-on approach to flourish at each venue. A personal touch with a collective mentality.

This business seeks to become a leader within hospitality. Their ambitions are well backed financially, and as was proven from the first lockdown and ever since, they adapt and flex to meet the demands and restrictions the market chucks at them. They promote a warm company culture who ask for a results-oriented person to play an important role in them scaling this business.

If you’re keen on all the above, self-driven, commercially astute, then let's go. Are you a big-picture thinker that wants to be part of the next level of growth for this leading hospitality brand? Then get in touch and let's discuss.
