Our client are a globally recognised food and beverage multinational with a number of brands. They pride themselves in delighting customers with a blend of unique new food concepts having won a number of awards. Headquartered in Singapore and China, they have experienced success in a number of international locations.

To be successful in the role we are looking for someone who is already operating in a Country Management/VP capacity who has a good understanding of Chinese culture.

You should have a track record within the hospitality industry, ideally within a start up or rapidly growing brand. We seek a self-starter who has high energy levels to recruit, engage and motivate teams. Stakeholder engagement and relationship management will be the foundation for success therefore clear communication skills with a positive working attitude are pre-requisites.
This is a unique opportunity to be responsible for the successful launch of a new brand to the UK market with the backing and support of a major multinational. There is a competitive offer on the table for the right candidate.
