Role Purpose

After a big meeting far away from home, or a long wait for a delayed flight, is there anyone more welcoming than a smiling bartender? As the friendly face of our hotel bars, you’ll also be a helpful host, a local expert, and a proud brand ambassador. Whether you’re preparing drinks exactly as our guests want or serving them delicious food, you’ll be devoted to creating relaxing, memorable experiences.

Key Accountabilities

  • Creating a warm and welcome to everyone and setting the tone for each guest’s experience.
  • Prepare and serve drinks to high standards, and highlight promotions to guests.
  • Work with your restaurant colleagues to offer a seamless food service.
  • Set up your bar – stock up on all the supplies you’ll need, manage your inventory and make sure all your equipment works.
  • Change beer barrels.
  • Look after your bar – keep it clean and tidy and make sure the alcohol is always secure.
  • Handle cash and credit transactions.
  • Look smart – wear your uniform with pride. 
  • Be ready to jump into other ad-hoc duties when your colleagues need your help.
  • Always follow safety procedures.

Key Skills & Experiences

  • Fitness – you’ll be on your feet most of the day with lots of bending and kneeling.
  • Strength – sometimes you’ll need to lift, push and pull big objects like barrels and crates up to 50lbs (23 kg).
  • Literate – you’ll need a good grasp of reading, writing and basic maths.
  • Flexible – night, weekend and holiday shifts are all part of the job.
  • Experienced – you’ll know how to prepare a wide range of drinks. Ideally with formal bartending training.
  • Compliant – as well as meeting local laws on food handling and serving alcohol, you’ll be above the minimum age required and fluent in the local language.
  • Articulate – a great communicator, you’ll be warm, welcoming and easy to talk to.
