Rooftop Assistant Restaurant Manager

The Hoxton, Poblenou | Avinguda Diagonal, 205, 08018 Barcelona, Spain


Company Description

We’re looking for an Assistant Restaurant Manager to join our team in TOPE at The Hoxton, Poblenou!

The Hoxton Poblenou in the city of Barcelona is our 11th Hoxton. The hotel boasts 240 bedrooms of different sizes, a large restaurant Four Corners with The Slice shop and La Bodega, a rooftop pool and our taqueria Tope, a bright and airy lobby, a multi-functional basement events space and The Apartment (our unique meetings & events concept).

Tope is our rooftop taqueria with views over Barcelona, serving Mexican-inspired flavours and punchy cocktails. We are searching for a real gem to support on managing our greatest rooftop bar in Barcelona: TOPE. Think 360-degree terrace with views over the city, tacos, margarita’s, DJ’s, events, groups and big parties. We need someone who can confidently manage a team, who is not afraid of some action, who has good contact with guests and who truly understands the brand.

More about us...

The Hoxton is a series of open-house hotels, each in a neighbourhood that we love. Ever since we opened our first hotel in Shoreditch, we’ve never just been about offering a bed for the night. We want to be more than that: proving style doesn’t need to be sacrificed for good value and providing a place where guests can hang out alongside the locals and submerse themselves in the neighbourhood with vibrant, welcoming public spaces.

Reporting to Rooftop Manager, you will be responsible to manage the daily restaurant and bar operations, maintain sanitation standards and assist servers and hosts during service. Strive to continually improve guest and employee satisfaction and maximize the financial performance in areas of responsibility.

  • Time off to volunteer with one of our partner charities.
  • Hox Hero and Nifty fifty, our rewards for going the extra mile and living our values.
  • An annual diversity and inclusion calendar of events creating opportunities for you to learn, celebrate and make a positive impact.
  • Regular team get togethers, from our High Fives to our (pretty special!) team parties – we know how to have a good time!
  • The chance to challenge the norm and work in an environment that is both creative and rewarding.
  • Join an innovative, fast-growing, international group that is shaking things up on the hospitality scene.
  • Excellent discounts across The Hoxton and the global Ennismore family.
