Job Description

We are now recruiting on behalf of a fantastic music charity responsible for two iconic venues in the heart of Birmingham. These venues welcome over half a million people to around 800 concerts and events every year.

This role requires a highly skilled and motivated Head of Food & Beverage to lead the venue, based at the main site in the B1 area of Birmingham.

This is a rare opportunity to join at the most exciting time in the organisation’s development. Capacity audiences are returning to live music, the company have just completed a major extension to the bars and public spaces and have introduced a food offer at the venue for the very first time. Already serving pre-concert dinner, this new Café Bar operation will extend to all day opening in the new year, supported by a major PR campaign.

You will be responsible for the overall P&L for the Food & Beverage operation, delivering the required margins and working towards a seven-figure turnover. You will lead on Health and Safety, staff training, purchasing and you will demonstrate and set the highest standards of customer service.

To succeed in this role you will require significant experience in managing a food and beverage operation and a track record of delivering to set targets. You will be required to lead from the front as part of the Duty Management team, as well as possessing excellent back-office skills, strategic vision and the ability to think creatively.

You will need a good knowledge of food and drink trends and the ability to implement these in the unique concert hall environment. Above all you will need to share a passion for live music and understand how food and drink plays an important part in the customer experience.

If your skills and experience are in the line with the above and you are looking for a cracking opportunity to drive this F&B offer to the next level, I would love to hear from you today. Please send your CV (as a WORD document).

Please note, due to volume of applications, we will only be able to respond to those with relevant experience.
