General Manager

David and Kaz started Grind in 2011, wanting somewhere to hang out when they weren't working - or even when they were - and could get a proper cup of coffee like in Melbourne, Kaz's home town. Fast forward a few years and Grind now has 10 sites across central and east London, a mix of restaurants and cafe-bars each smashing out coffee, cocktails and food day to night. To top it all off we have our own music studio upstairs in Shoreditch Grind, and a roastery and training lab at our Support Offices in Shoreditch. 


Grind is growing! We're looking for an experienced General Manager for a new opening - our biggest site to date. This will be a complex and high volume business, and we're looking for someone who is ready for the challenge of making it a success. 

We’re looking for a GM who can keep their cool, develop the people around them and, most importantly, make sure the customers and team have fun. Of course we expect the usual stuff; being able to run a great venue in style and bring in your P&L, but running a Grind is so much more. It's about the buzz, the vibe and the energy!

As General Manager we’ll need to see you’re confident in running a fast paced restaurant, have at least 4 years Management experience, be confident in multi-function sites and comfortable managing large teams (up to 50). 



  • Fantastic career development opportunities
  • Up to £45k per year
  • 30 days holiday per year (plus more the longer you stay!)
  • Generous discount scheme
  • Amazing bonus potential
