Supervisor [The Rooftop]

Supervisor · £34,800 per year · Full-time · Kings Cross · Midnight finish ·

Work with unparalleled views on our 11th floor rooftop bar in central London! Seasonal work - April to October - with opportunities to transfer within the hotel’s restaurants and bars thereafter.

The Standard sets the bar high again this spring with the relaunch of The Rooftop – an open-air bar and terrace that turns the London skyline into the perfect backdrop for cocktails, beers, and great music. This year, we will celebrate our legendary New York rooftop bars and clubs with New York-style pizza and Italian American snacks!

Open to guests and visitors throughout the summer months and hired out for private events, The Rooftop is the stage for our most striking parties and performances. Joyful, playful, and picturesque, this is a hidden gem set high up and off the beaten path.

We are now looking for experienced Supervisor to join our Rooftop opening team.

Your role

As a Supervisor at The Rooftop, you will become part of an exceptional team that will launch this exciting venue onto the London scene.

You will be passionate about service, very well organised with an exceptional working knowledge of restaurant and bar operations, and order of service. We expect very busy days, so prior experience working in a high-volume venue is important – and a love of the outdoors as you will be outside all Spring/Summer!

You are a natural leader with excellent communication and interpersonal skills that enable you motivate team members and help the team develop to deliver a consistently high performance. Your exceptional knowledge of food and drink will help create an environment where you and the other F&B professionals will not only delight our guests but also excite and surprise them to create the ultimate rooftop experience in London.

Do you have what it takes to be a Supervisor for The Rooftop at Standard, London

While we take every detail of design and guest experience seriously, we do not take ourselves too seriously. ‘Standard People’ are at the heart of our brand; dynamic, vivid, and engaging.

  • Confident in restaurant and bar operations and service, with a passion for food and drink you can translate to the team
  • Highly social, motivated, and pro-active; acting with professionalism and positivity in all interactions
  • Prior experience using squirrel epos, SevenRooms, and Fourth HR is advantageous, however full training will be given
  • The ability to develop and deliver effective training to maintain consistent service standards throughout your team
  • Available full-time with full flexibility to work Monday – Sunday, and happy to work in our other hotel restaurants and bars when we are unable to open or close The Rooftop due to inclement weather
  • Available for The Rooftop season April – October (initial contracts will be for the season, with the opportunity to move into another hotel position when the venue closes in the Autumn)

We are defined by our richness of personality and diversity of background, so if you think you have what it takes to be a Supervisor at The Rooftop, we would love to meet with you!
