So if you would appreciate the value of working for three of the most accomplished women in business today then this job should be worth more than gold to you.

Let's introduce them:

Mimi Gilmour

On the board of Co Of Woman, her honesty in confronting, her insight is stunning and her ability to strategically map out a company's road to success is second to none.

Keiran Andersen

Her positivity is infectious, her culture of accountability is game changing. You will be challenged by her and this job will not be easy, but she will take your high performance attitude to a whole new level, and she will teach you how to really lead a team. She's cunning.

So what do we do?

Our vision is to become New Zealand's most loved hospitality brand.

We are passionate about growing a hospitality business that provides extraordinary opportunities to the leaders and teams that run it. This job can be done by anyone with the right character and a related background that shows you can lead and take care of customers. We prefer to hire character and train skill, because you can't teach honesty or commonsense.

We believe that a leader is great, not for their ability to do everything themselves, but rather for their ability to encourage and empower others to do the right thing. This is what truly reveals the quality of leadership. We know that teamwork is the foundation of hospitality and we believe strong leadership is the key to ensuring our teams are happy, and operating with purpose.

We have built 3 legendary Auckland restaurants, and will be expanding to 15 new locations in 3 years. Right now, we are looking for a Hospitality Business Manager to lead our award winning Newmarket team.
