Assistant Manager – (book lover)


Do you like talking about books and good food? Does your idea of a perfect lazy Sunday involve reading under a blanket with a steaming cup of tea? Do you also like to spend the time you aren’t reading, around humans? Then you may be just who we’re looking for! The ideal candidate will have previous hospitality experience, however for the right individual with bags of initiative and an appreciation for fresh, plant-based food, this wouldn’t be 100% necessary.
