SERVICE MANAGER

Our ideal service manager is someone with experience running small teams and willing to invest in a hands-on approach to setting up, and running the Front of House systems. This role incorporates some administration such as stock management, ordering and overseeing one other staff member in service. The priorities of this position are:

1. Owning the floor and taking absolute pride in the presentation of the restaurant, FOH processes and running a smooth, excellent service.

2. Designing and delivering our wine/drinks pairings for our set menu and our drinks list. A passion for natural wines is essential, as is experience in bar techniques, wine list development and procurement, and an engaging, personable approach to delivering our pairings. 90% of our diners choose to do one of our pairings, so the ability to co-ordinate this is pivotal. Our head chef currently designs the Pasture pairings.

3. Working synergistically with the owners to take Pasture to the next level of excellence in service. This role is for someone who wants to work hard to make their mark in hospitality in Auckland and be supported by us to do so. The ability to communicate clearly and joining us with the knowledge you are part of a new team in our first year of operation (a.k.a. it is stressful and we have very high standards) is important. We're innovative, fast-paced and pursue excellence from ourselves and our team. We want someone dynamic who will relish the opportunities Pasture provides to be creative and push boundaries.

4. As a small team, a willingness to be involved in all aspects of service as a leader and a team member is essential.
