The Fruitmarket Gallery is looking for a Café Manager

We are looking for an experienced café manager to manage the day-to-day operations of the café and catered events. The continuing success of the café is a vital part of the Fruitmarket’s public-facing offer as we expand our activity. The Fruitmarket’s café is popular with our exhibition audiences, busy commuters, local residents, and tourists alike. Our core opening hours are 9am–6pm.

Events catering provides an essential part of what makes our café operation profitable, and with a recently enlarged kitchen we have been increasing this dynamic part of our business. We host a range of corporate and independent clients to expand our audience and to bring money back into our programmes. We hold an alcohol licence that allows us to operate until midnight and our frequent evening events can see us running busy bars.

The Fruitmarket works to be an inclusive venue and employer and the café is an important aspect of this, providing a warm welcome to those with specific access needs, or who may have experienced exclusion or have felt that this space wasn’t for them.

The café is a key part of the Fruitmarket, working flexibly to support the delivery of our mission. We are looking for a colleague with the ability to run a strong offer that delivers against ambitious financial targets while providing an excellent visitor experience.
