Taproom Manager - Full Time Weds-Sun

We’re looking for someone to join us at Orbit Taproom as our new Bar Manager. Located in the vibrant heart of Walworth, SE17, we're on the hunt for an experienced professional who is confident in a managerial role, has a passion for exceptional service, and has a great track record in the world of hospitality/events.

At Orbit Taproom, we're not just about pouring award-winning beers for our local community and beyond, we're about crafting an experience that blends European beer culture with great music and great food. With our love for music and vinyl, we host DJ nights, live music events, spoken word evenings, and bring-your-own-vinyl nights at the taproom. Plus, our resident chefs at @cuepointldn serve up Afghan/British dishes throughout the week and roast dinners on Sundays.

This opportunity to join our close-knit team requires a good communicator, both with staff and customers, and someone who is just as passionate about the brewery, beers, and music as we are. Collaborating closely with our marketing team and the talented chefs at Cue Point, you'll also lead our front-of-house team to elevate the taproom experience and transform Orbit Taproom into not just a community hub, but a sought-after destination in South London.
