This means you're joining a global family, with endless opportunity within Australia and overseas. 


About You:

Maybe, you are working in retail, hotels or tourism.  Maybe you are working in a pub, bar or cafe as a manager, and recognise that really, there isn't much career progression or you're looking for a change.


Perhaps you want to test yourself when it comes to building amazing customer experience in restaurant, not just a transaction. If this sounds familiar, we want to hear from you!

What does an Assistant Manager do?


In a nutshell, the Assistant Manager, known internally as an Assistant Patrao (Patrao means head of the family in Portuguese) is responsible for shift management, development of the team, customer experience, and key elements of restaurant operations (such as ordering, rostering, training). 


So you might be thinking ... What's in this for me?

  • You will work with an Area Manager and your Patrao to ensure you are getting the development you need
  • Competitive salary recognising your experience and initiative
  • Rotating roster which means you get weekends off throughout the month
  • Be part of a place that really invests in it's people and culture. Some of our initiatives include:
    • Master Griller Competition (this year, Ireland is hosting our finals - yes we fly you over!)
