A rare opportunity exists for career minded hospitality professionals to work at the top end of Adelaide's business events, conferencing and banqueting market.

Reporting to the Manager, Event Floor Services you will assist with the coordination of catering operations on the floor, ongoing staff development and performance to international standards, monitoring labour and material costs, uniform, linen and service standards and cash takings.

During the actual running of events, you will manage and coordinate the requirements of the client with other centrally-rostered operational areas of the Centre, such as the Kitchen, Set Up Crew, Technical & Event Services, Cleaners and Uniform Store.

  • significant supervisory / management experience in front of house (F&B) operations associated with corporate-style conference, cocktail and banquet catering in a large high-quality hotel, function centre, or similar venue
  • exceptional food and beverage service and bar operation skills and the ability to lead and coach others in the practical application of these skills

Excellent conditions and working environment apply, including: modern state of the art facilities, duty meals, laundered uniform, state government superannuation and subsidised car parking.
