Job Description

We've been BUZZed to assist The Distinction Christchurch Hotel, put together a BUZZing team, ready to launch the hotel later this year. This 179 rooms, 4.5 stars hotel is situated in the heart of the city and has undergone extensive refurbishment over the past few months. With an amazing General Manager already appointed, it's now time to assemble a team of industry professionals to create the culture, drive professionalism and lead from the front. 

With full control and accountability for the F&B department, you will oversee the Food & Beverage department, including the Restaurant, Bar, Room Service and Conference and Banquets facility. Mad about great food and wines and understanding the meaning of hospitality are prerequisites.

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.

If you feel like you can handle the joy, pain and frustrations of a pre opening, the highs, lows and roller coaster ride of getting there and the definition of a memorable dining experience - it's time to get BUZZing. Returning kiwis from outside of New Zealand, with international exposure are encouraged to apply, however we cannot accept application from those without the legal right to work in New Zealand - no exceptions.

We're BUZZing....are you?
