DM/Fox Revived
Job Type
Full Time

We are looking for an experienced Deputy Manager to join the crew at The Fox Revived near Horley, which we’re very excited to have as the latest addition to the Brunning & Price family of pub restaurants.  

We’re currently in the process of a substantial tip to toe renovation to restore this lovely country pub to its former splendour and we plan to re-open late Autumn 2016. We're looking to get our senior members of crew on board sooner rather then later for training at our other pubs, so you can hit the ground running when we open.

The Fox Revived will have the bar at its heart and food in its soul. You will find six cask ales on tap, an extensive wine list and a fine selection of spirits. Our seasonal menu will include high quality, freshly cooked food complemented by some more exotic influences from around the world – in other words, modern British cooking.

As Deputy Manager, you won't carry the full weight of responsibility but you’ll be helping to run a substantial business and will be the manager's right-hand person - making decisions and directing things on a daily basis. The role is very hands-on and extremely varied encompassing people management, food and drink, customer service, pub maintenance and day to day financial administration. 

As well as helping to select wines and beers, you’ll join in with menu development with the chef team and above all, be recognised as a natural, charismatic and friendly host with a big front of house character who genuinely enjoys looking after people and providing great service. 

We need someone who has a real eye for the detail together with management experience in a similar pub or restaurant environment.  You’ll need to have a strong passion for, and sound knowledge of, quality food, menu development, cask ales, beers, wines and spirits.

Our service style is informal and friendly and so on a personal note, we look for confident and outgoing individuals with a great sense of humour and the ability to help build, lead and inspire a successful team.  

Being a Deputy Manager is an ideal opportunity to gain knowledge and experience of every aspect of pub life and we provide structured training and development along the way.  We see our Deputy Managers as our Managers of the future, and try to promote from within whenever we can. Our rate of growth means that there are exciting opportunities springing up all the time which means this is an excellent stepping stone on the road to developing a rewarding career in pub management.

As a Deputy Manager we’ll reward you with a starting salary package from £24,000 - £28,000 per annum and you’ll be part of a successful, growing company who have been awarded Pub Group of the Year on many occasions.
