Operations Manager - North West (Cheshire/Lancashire)

Premium pub operator

up to £65,000 DOE + monthly car allowance

We are currently seeking a dynamic Area Manager or Operations Manager to work with an established premium pub brand, covering their sites across Cheshire and Lancashire. This is a national brand with a focus on using fresh, locally sourced produce to create quality dishes across their individual venues, complimented by an array of wines and craft beers. This is a very people focused company with a large portfolio of existing venues and a number of new openings on the horizon, so a passion for people and a proven record of delivering strong sales and growth within a similar business are essential.

Key Responsibilities of the role will include:

  • Reporting into the Operations Director, you will be responsible for overseeing anything from 7 to 12 sites in the North West.
  • Work closely with the General Managers within your area, providing support and guidance.
  • Managing margins, controlling costs and delivering decent bottom line profits.
  • Assisting with all aspects of new site openings.
  • Recruitment and development of management teams.
  • Ensuring the highest levels of customer service and supporting your employees to enable them to be accountable for delivering this.
  • Ensuring that your teams are achieving and exceeding financial and sales targets.
  • Ensure hygiene and health and safety standards are maintained to the Company's standard.
  • Constantly reviewing key business indicators to identify problems, concerns, and opportunities for improvement to achieve operational goals.

This role will involve regular travel and occasional overnight stays, so a full UK driving licence and a flexible attitude are essential. You will have experience at Area Manager level or higher, ideally within a branded food-led business.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a growing brand with a glowing reputation in the hospitality sector. If you have the skills and experience that we are looking for, please apply with a copy of your CV and covering letter.
