This restaurant came to the UK from South Africa 13 years ago, retaining the warm, casual feel of a home-from-home environment. Their ethos is simple; their guests must feel welcomed, relaxed and able to treat their restaurants as they would their own home.

What they offer:

Their teams are the most important element of their business and they believe that when you join them, you join their Family. They think like a big company by being innovative in their approaches to people and food but act like a caring, individualistic small company. If you like to contribute to your workplace and get involved with a team then they could offer the ideal place for you to grow and expand your career.

As well as offering meals during working hours, a discount is offered for you and your family/friends at other times.

The role:

The Events and Marketing Manager role is a stand alone role, covering all aspects of events and marketing within the business. Typically, there is a 50/50 time split between the two elements. They are looking for someone to devise and implement a marketing plan and event calendar, looking at each restaurant individually for what events are location specific, such as birthday parties or functions, as well as what will work across the group, such as promotions and themes.

The marketing is largely around promoting events, as well as continuing with the established digital presence and reaching new markets; digitally, face to face and business to business..

A large part of the role is building relationships and engaging with local businesses as well as individuals and our guests with a view to promoting the organisation with them and being a point of contact for events, parties and functions we may be able to host.

The successful candidate:

To be successful with them, you must have a natural warmth and friendliness and be able to offer great service and hospitality through being yourself.

You must be self-motivated and passionate about joining a growing, exciting and fast paced business, where you will be representing them in the service you give to all their guests.

You must be able to project manage, taking events and marketing strategies from concept to analysis in a coherent, well communicated, commercially viable manner.

Creative flair and an ability to think laterally is essential; you must be up to date with current food and drink trends and be able to see how these will fit in with, and work for, the business.

Good photographic and relevant IT skills are essential as you will be creating, editing and posting all digital and physical promotional material and content.

You must have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and be confident in engaging with and meeting new people, building rapport and relationships easily.

Previous marketing and/or events experience or qualifications is a must as this is a standalone role, so there will be little guidance and training around the systems.
