Is a town centre venue right for you?
Our Town Centre operators are industry experienced, fast-paced entrepreneurs who are never standing still for long. They live for the excitement and hustle and bustle of driving their diverse businesses forward whilst putting customers at the heart of everything they do. Most importantly, they have fun along the way!
Chameleon & Customer Experience - Like our venues, a Town Centre operator will be a chameleon. They will need to be able to adapt to the different uses of the site, which might be a relaxed coffee and cake style meeting place during the day, somewhere for a quick bite to eat after work and then become the place to be for cocktails, beers, music and entertainment late into the evening. The operator will have to ensure that the transition from one to the other is smooth, and find fresh and innovative ways to keep improving the customer experience. No two days are the same in these businesses – that’s what makes them so exciting!
Strong Business Acumen – Our Town Centre operators need to demonstrate solid business acumen, and must be able to identify opportunities to drive sales and then implement their plans, monitoring their success and using this to inform future activity and continuing to give customers new reasons to visit. Our businesses must be renowned for high standards and quality service. Running a Town Centre site is not for the faint hearted: it requires a lot of hard work. It requires dedication, planning, and commercial awareness. It is key to establish yourself and work closely with local authorities to keep a tight ship and remain compliant at all times. A personal hunger to drive sales and make money is a must!
Networking - It will be key to establish yourself in your town and become a well-connected networker. You will have an appreciation of the importance of social media and have a fresh approach to advertising, ensuring your business stands out from the crowd and becomes the place to be.
Team Leadership - A great operator knows that they cannot enjoy a successful and thriving business without having a happy and first-class team behind them! It is key to empower and develop the team to do the right thing and become expects of our product range. You will be a role model who leads by example and provides clear development plans for your team, enabling your top talent to take the next step in their own careers.
Dreaming big - Whether you’re considering an employed or self-employed opportunity, we want you challenge the status quo and think big! Bring your personality, quirks, experience and ideas to the table to take your business to the next level.
