My client is seeking a General Manager/or couple to run our well established, friendly, food and community led pub with rooms. The ideal candidate will possess the relevant skills and experience in hospitality.

We are looking for an exceptional, hands-on, self-motivated and competent person full of enthusiasm and commitment for the job in hand. A passion and knowledge for great food and beverage is required alongside a natural ability to delivery friendly, attentive service with discreet efficiency.

A base level understanding of the administration and accounts necessary for the smooth and effective running of a business in this field is needed. Experience in overseeing a team and strong leadership skills are essential.

The pub is at the heart of social activities, it is legendary for its year-round calendar of events and offers something for everyone whether it’s cosying up in front of a log fire in the depths of winter or dancing the hours away in the beer garden’s sun trap. Whilst the professional side is of upmost importance, it is vital that you have a zest for life and make the most of your surroundings. We want you to embrace island life and the community – there is plenty to do and the more you put in, the more you get out!
