Deputy Restaurant Manager

Warm, welcoming questions go a long way to making amazing experiences and at Huck’s American Bar and Grill, that’s our number one priority. We offer a true American eating experience, from mouth-watering fresh Californian flavours to sticky indulgent Texan recipes. And the service is just as good as warm apple pie, starting with the smile on the door.


Great service is infectious. That’s why we need you to set the standard from the start, sharing your unique hospitality style and experience with the front of house team and ensuring that the restaurant fully reflects guest choice and expectations.

Speed, efficiency and effectiveness across all areas of the restaurant will be the order of the day. You’ll be supporting a brilliant management team to take on daily operational challenges by effectively monitoring and coaching people on all aspects of service. With your help, our team members and supervisors will always be in high spirits and prepared be as helpful as possible to colleagues and guests.

Generating a strong rapport with guests and maintaining the restaurant’s warm, easy, family atmosphere requires a Deputy Restaurant Manager who is personable and passionate about service so your supervisory experience in a busy bar, hotel or restaurant setting will certainly help. And although people will be at the top of your agenda, you should be confident with numbers and have great analytical and problem solving skills.
