Food & Beverage

We think you’ll love coming to work every day

Food, beverages and big smiles. Life in a Virgin Active Club Lounge is ideal for anyone who loves people and enjoys providing great service. Whether in the kitchen conjuring up healthy, contemporary meals, or out front providing the sort of service that will make our members remember why they keep coming back, you’ll have the opportunity to make your mark. Of course, in between all the cooking, schmoozing, fun chats and the busy shifts, the F&B team do have targets to hit in order to help build and grow the business. But, working as part of a friendly but committed team, the chances are you’ll enjoy what you do so much you’ll wonder why you hadn’t made the move sooner.

Club Lounge Managers

Your F&B management experience in either a hospitality or leisure setting will thrive here as you make sure we deliver a truly five star member experience. We’ll be looking to you to inspire and motivate a team to excel in everything they do. Friendly professional, as opposed to friendly informal, you have a positive ‘can-do’ approach and a real flair for thinking on your feet and putting others at ease from the moment they meet you. You’re passionate about service standards too, plus you have experience in budget management, good project management skills and an enviable track record in recruiting and retaining the best performers the industry has to offer.

Club Lounge Supervisors

Leading the delivery of a first-class F&B experience is no easy task. As well as making sure our members receive the very best customer service, you’ll also be responsible for monitoring stock levels, promoting events and making sure hygiene, health and safety requirements are fully met. Coaching and motivating your team will be important too, as will supporting the Manager. Used to leading others in a catering environment, you have what it takes deal with issues politely, positively and efficiently, as well as the numeracy and admin skills to run a highly efficient operation.

Club Lounge Assistants

If you have a Level 2 qualification in food safety, impeccable standards of personal hygiene, grooming and presentation and are happy to work flexible hours, you sound like just the sort of person who might excel in our Club Lounge environment. Responsible for delivering a memorable experience to our members, you’ll prepare and present food and drink and generally provide the highest levels of customer service. Energetic and enthusiastic, you’ll need a good understanding of restaurant operations, excellent communication skills and, importantly, a real aptitude for teamwork.

Head Chefs

We’re always keen to hear from exceptional Chefs who want to play a part in our success. Particularly those who have gained a great reputation working within a commercial restaurant setting and are renowned for demanding the highest standards from their team. Working closely with the F&B Manager to ensure we consistently hit revenue and performance targets, you’ll also see that we meet all hygiene, health and safety requirements. Great at motivating others and comfortable working to deadlines, you’re also passionate about driving positive change in a high-energy catering environment. In short, whether it’s preparing food, devising special events, recruiting and leading a kitchen team or ensuring compliance, it’s you we’ll rely on.
