Assistant Restaurant Manager

Full Time

We are actively recruiting for an Assistant Restaurant Manager to support the day-to-day running of our newest venture – Ambers.

Set to grace Cedar Court Harrogate in March 2024, Ambers promises a harmonious fusion of timeless elegance and contemporary flair. Immerse yourself in an atmosphere where cherished antique details are thoughtfully refreshed and each element, from the dress curtains to the warm LED lighting, exudes a refined charm. The carefully chosen classy furniture, renewed lighting fixtures, plush new carpets, and exquisite brass finishings further elevate the dining experience. Ambers is poised to be a haven where culinary excellence meets a captivating ambience, inviting you to savour every moment in unparalleled style.

You’ll have at least a year’s experience as a Restaurant Supervisor or Assistant Restaurant Manager in a similar background, either in a high-end standalone restaurant or in-house hotel food and beverage provision. You’ll be dynamic and personable, with a flair for exceptional customer service and a great eye for detail. Your main role will be to run service within the restaurant from breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a hands-on approach to service and hosting, driving and leading levels of service.

You’ll know your Bordeaux from your Beaujolais, your lemongrass from your leeks and be an all-round food and beverage superstar!

Get ready to be part of an exciting new dining experience that transcends expectations and defines a new era of gastronomic delight.

What we can offer you:

We want each and every colleague to enjoy coming to work, and for Cedar Court Hotels to become one of the top hospitality employers around – so providing a friendly and supportive environment is our main priority.
