Assistant manager, London - Jobs | Monocle

Assistant manager

The Monocle Café now has an opening for a standards-driven, ambitious and talented Assistant Manager. The role involves the day to day running of the café business, overseeing both the kitchen team and hosting the front of house.

You will deputise for the Café Manager, and be responsible for all aspects of managing the financial and operational elements of the business in their absence.

We offer an excellent package and the opportunity for rapid career development alongside the prestige of working for a highly respected, international lifestyle and fashion brand.

The Monocle Café is situated very close to our London bureau and you will have daily interactions with the wider Monocle team who frequently entertain guests there.

We are known for our excellent coffee and drinks, so proven barista skills in a busy environment are essential, as is the ability to train and develop a team.

You will have at least two years’ experience of supervising a small, cohesive team and delivering an exceptional and unique customer experience within an independent environment.

You must be able to demonstrate an inherent understanding of the Monocle brand, and possess a genuine passion for interests that share a synergy with monocle, especially in relation to media, fashion, design, travel and culture.

The Monocle Café is open seven days a week and you will be expected to work weekends and evenings as part of your weekly schedule. Excellent verbal and written English and basic computer skills are obligatory.

If you share our passions and believe that you could actively contribute to the ongoing development and expansion of the Monocle cafe, please send us your CV and a cover letter.
