  • Take responsibility for the ordering of food stocks
  • Take a leading role in the development of new ideas for enhancing hospitality services
  • Lead the planning of menu offers
  • Ensure legislative requirements are met
  • Excellent communication skills and a positive disposition
  • Ability to work on own initiative or as directed
  • Must be equally confident in working alone or as part of a small team
  • Demonstrate consistently high standards of presentation
  • Must be punctual and reliable at all times
