A bright pink ‘N’ and ‘W’ in painted writing and beneath it in gold is written ‘New Wolsey Theatre’

If you know how to run a profitable café/ bar business and you’re hungry for the chance to establish something new, this role will satisfy your ambition. At the New Wolsey Theatre, we have many loyal and longstanding customers that feel like old friends. When we re-open our newly refurbished café/bar we want to welcome back those familiar faces and reach out to new customers. Our new building NW2, and the outdoor area known as ‘ Theatre Square’ offer exciting potential for a team player with an entrepreneurial spirit to make the most of new business opportunities. You’ll work closely with the Customer Relations Manager and the Head of Creative Communities to develop a coherent offer for all New Wolsey Theatre activities. To be successful in this role you will be up to the challenge of establishing a new food and beverage offer and you’ll have the experience to manage 400 people wanting a drink in the interval just as well as 40 people wanting a lovely afternoon tea. If you’re a hands-on, roll-your-sleeves up kind of leader who’s itching to get stuck in to a new challenge, come and make the New Wolsey Theatre’s hospitality the best in town.

This role is offered on a 12-month fixed-term contract, 40 hours per week.
