Situations (Pretty) Vacant

Assistant Manager

The Drawing Board is looking for an Assistant Manager to join the team.

Can someone find me a sharp witted, food loving, personality having, passionate workaholic please?!! and for the love of God, let them have a sense of humour and let them have told their own faces!

For the award winning DB its year 7 and we’re looking for future Managers in the making. We want an experienced Manager to join us. We’re amassing a small Independent army to slowly take over the Midlands (obviously)

Okay so the globe has had a rather horrific experience through this pandemic & amongst the worst sufferers it’s us in hospitality that have had a pretty hefty kick in the goolies. With the end potentially in sight we begin to turn our attention to the future.

As an Assistant Manager you are a key member of the management team and will be expected to support the other managers as the ‘right hand’ person in all aspects of sharing responsibility for the day to day running of the pub. You will also assume responsibility for the pub when the manager is not on the premises with the help of the rest of the management team.

You’ll need to be a real foodie; have a real passion for decent beer and wine; enjoy looking after others and help build and direct a happy crew. The role will therefore be very hands-on and pretty varied encompassing people management, food and drink, customer service, pub maintenance and day to day financial administration. This is a 24/7 full on front of house, customer facing, people loving cabaret!
At the end of the day the most important quality we look for in all our people is strength of personality. We like fun characters who set the bar high and have an eye for detail.

We’ll reward you with a cracking salary plus tips. If this sounds like your cup of tea/glass of wine/pint of beer get in touch via email – send us a copy of your CV & a bit of a nattery type cover letter…hello@thedrawingboard.pub

The Drawing Board was established in 2015. It is an independent Free House in Leamington Spa- apparently the happiest place to live in the country (I have my doubts but who am I to argue?) we won The Great British Pub Awards Best Beer Pub in 2019 which we’re still harping on about amongst other various prestigious gongs over the last few years.

Chef De Partie

We’re looking for an ambitious and committed chef with a passion for food who is ready to take the next step in his or her career.

For us it’s all about serving fresh, quirky, high quality gourmet bar food.

This is a busy working environment, and as well as having high standards and demonstrating good attention to detail, you’ll help the crew set the bar high in terms of delicious dishes, effective kitchen controls and excellent standards of health and hygiene.

We’ll reward you with a cracking salary plus tips. If this sounds like your cup of tea/glass of wine/pint of beer get in touch via email – send us a copy of your CV & a bit of a nattery type cover letter…hello@thedrawingboard.pub

Full Time & Part Time Bar/Waiting Staff

The Drawing Board is looking for chatty drink/food/ orientated types for the imminent reopening. We offer genuinely smiley service with the emphasis on abusing the customer (in a nice way) and knowing our onions. So, yes, previous experience is a must but as long as you have a passion for hospitality, enjoy looking after people and are able to work evenings and weekends, we would like to hear from you – especially if your face is plastered with a big grin… We have an amazing eclectic, freshly cooked menu, a plethora of craft beers, gluggable wines, gins and 100 odd whiskies. It’s pretty busy at The DB but we’re always in good cheer so if you think you’ve got the talent – get in touch. Great rates of pay plus a share of the rather excellent tips!

There are certain types of people that thrive in a busy, chatty, friendly environment – if you feel that you’re one of them, we’d love for you to join us.

Alternatively come to an interview where we stare at you and wonder why you thought it was a good idea.
