Excellent bonus scheme, 45 hour full time contract and fantastic benefits! Do you bring that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to the table? Say bonjour to a rewarding career with Café Rouge…


At Café rouge we’re proud of our iconic brand and our 26 year heritage.  We pride ourselves on our passion for good food, good wine and brilliant service.  Our restaurants exude atmosphere and charm and so do our people!

Right now, we have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced General Manager to join the Rouge family.  We’re looking for someone outstanding - someone who believes that the key to success is through our people and that by enhancing the guest experience with outstanding service every time, we’ll deliver results.

Our General Managers are a talented bunch!  Identifying and capitalising on every opportunity to enhance the guest experience, you’ll not only focus on fantastic food and great service - you’ll manage the business side of things too.  As a General Manager, you will control costs, manage budgets and drive sales, whilst supporting, training and developing your team.  You’ll have a real drive to deliver results, and you’ll be a talented manager of people.

The role:
  • Responsibility for the business performance of the restaurant
  • Analysing and planning restaurant sales levels and profitability
  • Organising marketing activities, such as promotional events and discount schemes
  • Preparing reports at the end of the shift/week, including cost controls and sales
  • Creating and executing plans for department sales, profit and staff development
  • Managing the day to day operations of the restaurant
  • Managing a talented team
  • Ensuring that all standards are met and exceeded
  • Recruiting, training and motivating your team
  • Maintaining high standards of quality control, hygiene, and health and safety

You’ll be a great leader with strong communication and influencing skills, you’ll have an approachable manner and a “hands on” attitude. You’ll also have an eye for detail, and the ability to drive consistent brand standards and exceed guest expectations.  When it comes to the drive and energy to see your business succeed, you’ll deliver.  Above all though, you’ll share our values – you’ll be passionate, confident, caring and trustworthy taking pride in all that you do. 

If you share our big appetite for success, are passionate and ambitious, and if you live and breathe food, hospitality and outstanding service then we want to hear from you!


As a company that's proud of its brilliant people, we believe in the opportunity to recognise and develop brilliant talent.  That's why we offer a number of courses and training programmes to help our stars develop and reach their career potential.  Whether you are just starting out in your career, a Supervisor with big aspirations, an experienced Head Chef or an established high performing Manager with a proven track record – there is a development plan for you.  If this isn’t enough, we offer a whole realm of fantastic benefits and incentives. And because life isn't only about work, we offer excellent annual leave entitlement too
