Club Mexicana is looking for someone to join our fantastic team in the role of Street Food Site Manager in our Shoreditch site: Dinerama.
This role will be looking after our East London indoor street food home operated by Street Feast. This is not a traditional manager role! This site is street food to its core…but with some added warmth! Built on top of an old carpark, it’s built out of old shipping containers and is a hidden maze of bars and street food operators. In its early days it was the very first of its kind and is now known as one of East London’s best kept foodie secrets.
Dinerama operates on a casual street food basis, customers come to the counter to order and their food is made fast, with no frills and no fuss, but all the while done seamlessly, presented beautifully and always with a smile. Dinerama focusses on stepping street food up a notch! This is not gazebos in the wind, it’s all covered with roaring fires outside in the winter months. We’re looking for people who have decent street food experience and know the street food world inside out but are looking for their next challenge and are ready to step up. The ideal candidate will be confident around food, have brilliant customer service and dynamic management skills.
We are looking for someone who wants to further their career in food and hospitality with one of the most exciting & innovative food companies in London. Club Mexicana is at the forefront of a new wave of eating and is re-defining vegan food and its perception. We are featured in almost every list of London’s best vegan places to eat, won best vegan dish in London, and is currently ranked Number 1 in London’s Best Street Food, by Time Out. Our founder, Meriel, was recently voted number 2 in Time Out’s ‘Most Influential Londoners’ in recognition of the direction Club Mexicana is taking vegan food in this city.
We’re looking for a hardworking, passionate person with great energy, enthusiasm and initiative to lead our awesome team. You will have street food experience, including experience in stock and people management. You will be responsible for the smooth and efficient running of the stall, for maintaining exceptional standards of food quality and food hygiene, and for delivering excellent customer service. You will liaise with and maintain our excellent working relationship with site owners Street Feast, be a proactive problem-solver and be able to maintain a cool head under pressure. Positive vibes and a can-do attitude are essential to us.
Dinerama is open Wednesday – Saturday evenings, and the operational hours of the site are approx 2pm- 11/12pm, so working evenings and weekends is an essential part of the job. The site runs as an event space on other days of the week sometimes, which you will also be asked to manage.
