Career Level Manager
We are currently recruiting for a professional Waiter/Waitress with bags of energy to join our clients' Front of House team at this lively and fast paced restaurant based in Beckenham, London.
Born out of an Italian family's love of authentic home cooking, the restaurant has evolved to offer freshly prepared dishes inspired by traditional and modern Italy. With a big local following and guests coming from further afield, the restaurant offers a unique dining experience which mixes the passion in the kitchen with the flair in the restaurant.
Working alongside the Owner and as part of the front of house team, you will welcome Guests and ensure that all guests have an amazing experience at the restaurant. With a naturally friendly and warm approach, you will upsell food specials and fine wines. As this is an Italian restaurant, the ability to speak Italian is preferable but not essential.
As the restaurant can get extremely busy (covers up to 130 and tables turned several times on a Saturday evening), the service is fast paced and full on so bags of energy is essential!
The restaurant is open Tuesday to Sunday, working hours would be 4 double shifts with lunch break and 1 single (approx. 48 hours per week) although there is some flexibility on offer.

-Be an experienced Waiter or Waitress with a proven work history in a fast paced restaurant
