  • WINDMILL SE1

Slap bang in the middle of Waterloo and Southwark stations, the Windmill Tavern is also just yards from both the Young Vic and Old Vic, so attracts a lively theatre and after-work clientele as well as a sprinkling of famous faces. A bright and breezy décor, with portraits of famous thespians throughout, helps provide a relaxed atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of The Cut.

What we can offer you;

  • Enjoy the fast-paced fun of pub life
  • Learn new skills to enhance your career with our industry leading training and development.
  • Belong to a supportive, close-knit team
  • Benefit from a competitive salary and great discounts including 20% in all Fuller's pubs and heavily discounted stays in our hotels.
  • We will reward you every time you introduce a friend to the Fuller’s family who successfully passes their probation.
  • A great benefits package including enhanced sick pay.

Could you write the next chapter of our success story?

As our General Manager, you’ll be the driving force behind the success of the pub.

Ultimately, the smiles on faces, the return visits and the positive reviews are all down to you - making this one of the most rewarding jobs in the hospitality business.

  • Run a great pub, backed by the famous Fuller’s brewery
  • Enjoy the freedom to make the pub your own
  • Adopt a fantastic, friendly team
  • Benefit from a competitive salary and great discounts including 20% in all Fuller's pubs and heavily discounted stays in our hotels.
  • Benefit from industry leading training and development.
  • We will reward you every time you introduce a friend to the Fuller’s family who successfully passes their probation.

For any General Manager, Fuller’s is a special company to work for. You’ll get lots of help and support from Head Office when you need it, but also plenty of encouragement to put your own spin on the pub.

You can take plenty of pride in the role too, knowing that Fuller’s ales, food and service has a reputation as some of the very best in the business.

You’ll need to be commercially minded, making the right decisions to keep customers pouring through the doors. Importantly though, you’ll be a people-person too - mindful that to many, you’re still a good old-fashioned ‘Landlord’.

And of course, you’ll have a team to look after. So we’re looking for somebody with true leadership qualities – able to keep both the customers and the team smiling.

  • You’ll be great at leading a team
  • You should be highly motivated and commercially focused
  • You’ll need to be a great communicator
  • You should have previous management experience

Please understand that we will need proof of your right to work in the UK.

We are on the hunt for a new General Manager to lead the team at the fabulous Windmill, SE1!

Occupying a prime position on The Cut and a 5 minute walk from Waterloo station, The Windmill offers bags of opportunity to put this business on the map. A new acquisition to the Fuller’s managed estate in 2017, the pub has already received a small investment and is due to receive a further significant investment in 2019 which will re-cement it as THE meeting point on The Cut. The area is steeped in history and the investment will focus on restoring the pub to its former glory as an all-welcoming traditional coaching inn drawing inspiration from the areas reputation for trade in the 1800’s where anything could be bought and sold.

Dining at the Windmill is all about traditional British pub food with a daily changing pie menu which is perfectly suited to the area. This is supplemented by a superb range of cask ales, wine and an interesting craft selection. Owing to its location, the customer base here is diverse. With several iconic theatres nearby, along with Waterloo station, trade is steady with peaks in line with showtimes and end of the working day.

This is a really exciting opportunity to run a great business and see it through a brilliant refurbishment. The next General Manager will be passionate about ensuring the Windmill is the best pub in the area, building its reputation as somewhere to enjoy great food and drink in lovely surroundings.
