A little bit about the opportunity…

The Alex is a great Social Pub & Kitchen business with consistent all year-round sales driven through a well-established Rhythm of the Week, late night trading at weekends, coupled with sport and a superb food offer with Dark Kitchen too.

So, you will be keen to show your sports sales skills off to the max ensuring you look at all avenues to grow game time sales, be that through efficiencies or creating an atmosphere that everyone wants to be part of including that all important pre & post-match atmosphere.

You must be willing to get stuck in, this is a role where you will need to work in the business just as much as on it. You will be able to demonstrate how you will lead, develop, and recognised your teams within the business.
