Chris Reeves    
Squerryes sits at the foot of the North Downs just outside Westerham, Kent in the south-east of England,  a 300 year old English estate, a boutique brand in the English market, producing gold medal winning, vintage sparkling wine. In 2018 we had an incredible year, opening our new Winery, delivering signature wine-led experiences and launching a pop-up restaurant at weekends over the summer serving the finest seafood. 
In 2019 we're going to build on this success, further developing our Winery, enabling us to increase our capacity both indoors and out, ensuring a larger portfolio of wine-led experiences and a destination for delicious seafood that runs as a restaurant throughout the whole year. All at a time when the English wine industry is experiencing exceptional growth. 
As part of our expansion we're looking for a front of house manager who will play an integral part in the development of our business, who has the confidence and experience to lead a team, but equally is happy to be in the thick of service.  
Ideally you will have:
- experience gained from working as a senior front of house or manager for a winery, including a tasting room and restaurant  
- an interest for wine and may have worked as a sommelier in the past 
- had commercial responsibility and feels happy taking responsibility for budgets
- a passion for provenance 
- worked in start-ups or for smaller, challenger brands
Please share your CV with a covering letter outlining why you feel you are the right person for this opportunity for the attention of Chris Reeves
Closing date for applications: 01st March 2019 after which we will do a shortlist and then arrange interviews via Skype
