You will have a great skill and understanding of ‘edu-tainment’ with your passion for serving the Guest second to none. You will have circa 1½ years of cocktail making experience and you will be able to craft your cocktails smoothly, rapidly and effortlessly. The role is offering the Guest an ‘experience’ rather than simply a drink and you will have the knowledge of spirits and liqueurs to ‘tell’ the guest where they are from, and how they are made. The serving of the cocktail should be in minutes not tens of minutes. You will be brilliant at ‘upselling’ and ‘suggestive selling’ ensuring your bar and beverage targets are surpassed. Your understanding of cleanliness / USPH or equivalent will be incredible and you will be able to work in a small arena.

You will be able and willing to work 7 days a week for a 6 month period. Your passion to personally and professionally develop will be apparent and you will happily act as an ambassador of the company in this high profile position. Of course it goes without saying there is no alcohol to be drunk behind the bar whilst working, so your measures and pouring will be needed to be exact. There will be a cocktail list for you to learn and work with too…although I am sure your creativity and ideas from the past will be embraced within the business also.

You will be able to fund your own medical and be available for a phone / Skype / face to face interview determined on where you are in the world. Your CV will be exceptionally presented contact details and months as well as years you have worked in each position listed.
