Experienced General Manager and Licensee wanted for the Darlo Taphouse (spread the word!)

After great service to the Darlo Taphouse, we're saying bon voyage to Mark and Les.

Mark and his girlfriend are relocating to the northern beaches before heading overseas for an extended holiday. Les is a country boy at heart and is heading down to Bright Brewery in country Victoria to accept an exciting job with our friends down there. We wish them both the very best of luck and hope they come 'home' some time in the future!

Now we need someone to fill their sizeable shoes! First up, we need a new General Manager:

Experienced General Manager and Licensee for The Local Taphouse (Darlinghurst)

Currently ranked by leading review website,, as Sydney’s Best Pub and repeatedly judged the best specialist beer bar in Australia, The Local Taphouse in Darlinghurst is looking for an experienced, energetic and enthusiastic General Manager. We need a grand poo-bah to lead our team!

Beer knowledge is helpful but not essential. What is essential, however, is someone who is a strong and passionate leader with a sense of humour and excited to learn about craft beer. Someone who can manage all aspects of this fantastic business and build, maintain and manage a strong leadership team. We want someone who can maintain our culture where genuine hospitality and an exceptional customer experience are our stated goals.

We’re looking for someone who can drive sales through clever promotion and help execute our 50 plus beer-related events every year; someone with great attention to detail who is organised and demands high standards from themselves and their team; someone who is comfortable striving for excellence and motivated to be the leader of a world class establishment.

The right person will have great references and several years experience in a General Manager role. They will be comfortable working autonomously but regularly meeting with, and reporting to, the business owners. They will have excellent communication skills and be at home with spreadsheets, emails, computers and point of sale systems.
