Manager / Assistant Manager

As we emerge from lockdown, we’re determined to raise the bar and continue the evolution of the business.

To help us do this, we’re strengthening our management team. We’re looking for someone to work alongside (GM) Richard and (Assistant Managers) Becky and Fi across Joseph Benjamin and Porta. This is a new full time role and, to be honest, could suit someone at a variety of career points. Mainly we’re looking for the ‘right person’.

If you genuinely enjoy the buzz of restaurant service and are a ‘people person’ with a few years hospitality/management experience and a strong interest in food & wine, get in touch. Good hours, good pay (equal split of good tips), nice people!

Working alongside owners Ben & Joe, and the existing management team, you will be involved in maintaining extremely high standards of customer service, systems & procedures and managing the premises in the general manager’s absence.

This is a customer-focussed role; leading the team by example and helping us raise the bar in terms of guest experience.


As Assistant Manager, your responsibilities will include:

Applications are welcome from candidates with experience of similar management / supervisory roles who are seeking an exciting career move within a growing, ambitious company.

Salary for this position is negotiable with prior experience being taken into account.

The position includes a full split of good tips.

A normal working week would be 40-45 hours.
