What Skills and Experience do you need to be a Duty Manager?
Our Duty Manager role requires flexibility to cover different shifts and tasks.

Experience** in hospitality or customer service would be advantageous, including the management and delivery of a quality service.
Food safety level 2 and APLH level 2 qualifications would be desirable but not essential. Experience / working knowledge of managing varying pressures, including significant peaks in workload demands and experience of managing a team is essential.
**We value lived experience just as much as previous skills and knowledge. We offer a robust induction, ongoing training, and further development, however, some of our roles will have further skills requirements. It’s an advantage but not essential that our team members have experience volunteering or working with other people.
Duties vary so good communication skills and basic IT skills are advantageous. Excellent time keeping is essential.
