General Manager - London
This central London business is located in a prime location within the jewellery quarter in Farringdon. The business is a hot spot for local business people at lunch and during the evening, as well as a haven for tourists in the afternoons and Saturdays. The site trades 6 days a week currently and we will be looking to introduce Sky into the site in the coming months which will enable us to move to a 7 day week trading style. We are planning to invest heavily in the site in the next 3 months so the applicant will need to be confident with re-building a brand new business post investment ensuring The Argyle is put on the map for being different, but the best business in the area.
The Argyle is a fantastic 3 floor operation with a Cellar bar which is ideal for sports bookings and corporate & private hire space, the main trading floor which opens up onto Leather Lane is a vibrant trading space.
The Jewel in the crown at the Argyle is the terrace bar and outside decking area which has massive opportunity to be utilised further and become the place to visit in the area. The Argyle should be a local’s pub in the city with a compelling ROTW and a great place to eat.
The Successful applicant should be used to running a busy venue taking £25k per week with an ability to ensure speed of service at lunchtimes, where our customers need to be served quickly during their lunch hour. You should be massively customer focussed and be able to think outside the box making the Argyle feel like an independent city pub whilst underpinning the absolute basics of service and standards. The Argyle attracts a number of tourists, so an understanding of tourists would be beneficial as would an understanding of sport.
In return, we can offer you a competitive package with uncapped bonus scheme, 25% discount off all of our sites, a pension scheme, private healthcare and an award winning development programme. We can also give you an environment where you will be empowered to run your pub as if it were your own with great support and amazing rewards.
Please note: We require all of our General Managers to have a personal licence to manage our sites.
