Food & Beverage Manager - New Forest 

What we need in a nutshell

We need someone who can lead and inspire a busy team, who is business-savvy, and who understands that food and drink are central to a happy holiday.

Some of the background

We’re not your average holiday company. Our guests come to our UK resorts to experience a world away from their day-to-day. When they are with us, they play crazy games, enjoy show-stopping entertainment and live in the moment. Our job is to surprise and delight them at every turn.

We need you to be the person who manages the F&B team so that you and they deliver delight in our bars and restaurants. And we need you to deliver delight to our commercial team too!

What you will be doing

As part of our slightly bonkers team of holiday heroes, you will be supporting the Commercial Manager and making sure that our guests are fed, watered and having a good time. This includes:

  • Managing and motivating the F&B team to deliver delight
  • Training and supporting team members to help them be the best they can be
  • Driving profitable growth with care and flair
  • Setting the standards high and making sure your team meets them
  • Generally making sure everybody is having a great time
  •  

One more thing…holidays happen at holiday times and eating and drinking goes on in into the night, so you’ll need to work your magic on bank holidays, evenings and weekends too.

Skills, experience and qualities you’ll need

We have high standards! We’ll train you up, but you must:

  • Have solid management experience in a commercially switched-on retail, catering, leisure or hospitality business
  • Show evidence of your superb people management skills
  • Have an eye for detail, a head for business and a mindset for innovation
  • Know your profit and loss from your balance sheet and be able to control costs and grow profit
  • Have knowledge and experience of catering and its many challenges
  • Have energy, enthusiasm and a positive attitude

It’s about your values too. We have a can-do, fun loving, people centred ethos here at Away Resorts, which is captured by our holiday heroes’ mantra of Attentive Amazing Lovers – if that’s fired up your curiosity, have a read about it here and decide if it describes you.

Nice to have but not essential

It would be great if you tick some of these boxes too (but we won’t hold it against you if you don’t).

  • Experience of working in the holiday sector

Want to join our team? Here’s how to apply

Click on the Apply Now button. If you’re new to our website, we’ll prompt you to register. If you’ve already registered, you can simply log in. Then complete your details and send us your best version of you.

That could be a vlog, blog or a Snapchat story; it could be a good old CV – if it is a CV, make sure you add a note or covering letter to say why you’re the one for the job.

It’s up to you what you say and how you say it; whatever makes you feel good and tells your story best.

Good Luck!
