Job Description

We've been BUZZed to find an Food & Beverage Director to take the F&B department to the next level. With full control and accountability for the F&B department and extra responsibilities across the hotel operations, this is a "hands on" position that will test everything you have learnt so far in your hospitality career. BUZZing????

The F&B department is the backbone to this property, generating substantial revenue. You will have a proven track record of success in Food and Beverage, showing you have the commercial capability to maximise profit, control costs and build customer loyalty. Exceptional communication skills and the leadership capacity to create a winning team are essential. Implementing initiatives, coaching, developing and maximising opportunities to increase capture rates and revenue are critical. 

We require a natural leader, a real go getter that leads from the front. We need someone who has worked as both an Executive Chef and a Food & Beverage Manager in a multi-venue environment, so that front and back of house operate cohesively.   You’ll need to be business savvy, enthusiastic, organised, customer focused and a good people leader.

This is a rare opportunity to showcase everything you have learnt to date and pass this on to the next generation of superstars. The coffee machine is brewing and the BUZZ bars are in the fridge so if you are currently working in the industry, legally entitled to work in New Zealand and looking for a genuine career changing move, get BUZZing.
