Front of House Manager

 

Want to join a successful restaurant startup with excellent opportunities? Now is your chance! We are looking for a real hustler to become our Front of House manager (second in command). Be part of the management team, learn how to operate a great restaurant, and be on the fast track to becoming a General Manager.

 

We're a sourdough pizza restaurant, open since September 2018 in Neukölln. Gazzo is a fun place, always bustling and busy. We believe in sourcing artisanal produce - local when available, but always delicious, sustainable and natural. We choose produce we love, and are transparent about it. We help our guests fight against a greedy food industry one bite at a time – and having a blast doing so!

We hire only super nice people. You can teach someone with a great attitude to make pizza, but it’s much harder to teach someone with a big ego to be a team player - Gazzo is only as good as the team. It’s hard work, so why not find nice people and make it fun?

For the Assistant GM position, we are looking for an ambitious manager. The person can expect to join a super motivated and friendly team. There is already an experienced general manager to work with and coach you, and the two founders are both actively involved in the daily operations. You can expect a lot of mentoring and exciting future opportunities. After some time in this job you will know all about how to successfully lead a great restaurant. As we are looking for more locations, there is a big chance to become a General Manager soon.

As a Front of House Manager, you will be responsible for key parts of our restaurant. Also, you will be part of leading our team. We believe that happy employees will take care of the guests, which will lead to a healthy business.

Tasks:
  • Managing the operations of the restaurant when the GM is not there

  • Arranging trainings for the staff

  • Scheduling staff

  • Hiring staff, and making sure all legal requirements in HR are met

  • Planning and budgeting together with management team

  • Cost controlling (especially labor cost and food cost)

  • General management tasks, including cash handling, cost controlling, etc.

Profile:
  • Great attitude and service-minded personality

  • Extensive experience in restaurant service, and/or restaurant management

  • Degree in hospitality management or business is a plus

  • Ability to handle responsibilities and high pressure

  • Passion for creating great customer experiences

  • Interest in culinary trends, and knowledge of Berlin’s culinary scene

  • Having lived or currently living in Berlin

  • Willing and able to work evenings and weekends

We offer:
  • The opportunity to join a successful restaurant startup with an exciting future ahead
