Assistant General Manager
Enmore’s royal portal to the underworld has reopened. The Duke’s Darklord skulks and stalks the streets on the hunt for its pint-slinging purveyor of picklebacks, lich of live tunes and late nights – a spectre of stiff drinks and good times.
We’re looking for a tried and true Assistant Manager, well versed in the back-of-house (under)world – this means stocktake, ordering, training and managing staff, thinking on your feet and solving problems – we want you looking at the venue like it’s your own little twisted offspring, and helping it grow into an even bigger, uglier beast.
Our wet dream candidate will have some notches in their belt, with proven management experience. Your leadership hat should be long, broad, and fit ya like a champ.
The Duke is part of Odd Culture – a fast-moving hospitality group with some of the best and brightest in the industry at the helm of its venues. The right individual will be met with open arms and the opportunities to grow, develop and steer this ship further into glory!
