General Manager
Marston’s is one of the UK’s largest and most beloved pub chains and today, we operate more than 1,300 pubs, bars and hotels. 

Now, we’re on the lookout for a great General Manager to take charge at the Crow's Nest and lead the team to success!

Have you got what it takes?
It’s true, being a Pub Manager is demanding but the people make it much more than just a job. Brimming with energy and ideas, you’ll add touches of your personality to your pub and think of new ways to delight and excite your customers. You’ll thrive off growing your business and have a ‘lead from the front’ mentality and passion for nurturing your team.

As a General Manager you’ll:

  • Care about finding, growing and engaging your team.
  • Be accountable for running all aspects of your pub.
  • Be passionate about doing the right thing for your staff and your customers.
  • Dream big and think differently about new ways to increase sales and growth.
  • Celebrate and create a buzz by sharing enjoyable experiences.

Are we right for you?
From cosy locals to pub-restaurants, our destination businesses serve up an award-winning selection of pub classics and innovative new dishes. What’s more, our impressive drinks portfolio combines well-known brands, like Estrella and Hobgoblin, with outstanding craft ales and beers. Add a dash of our unique Marston’s atmosphere and we have the ingredients to make every visit a fantastic experience for our customers. The same goes for our people and as one of our General Managers you’ll find a premium blend of challenge, security and career progression. And whenever you need support or guidance advice from your area manager, you’ll find their door is always open.

About the pub

The Crows Nest is situated in Seaham on a fantastic coastal location with a mix of local and tourist guests. The pub sees peak trade in the summer when tourism is high, but has bags of opportunity outside of the seasonal trade to keep locals coming back.

It functions via a large bar area with a 60% wet trade but also a strong food offering, benefiting from a pizza oven front of house and a classic pub menu. Also on offer to the community at the site is Sky Sports & BT Sports, perfect for driving sales across sporting occasions.

The Crows Nest is very much at the heart of the community with a local feel, for that reason it's important that there is always something going on and guests both regular and tourist have reasons to visit.

The site has been successfully ran and is available due to an internal move, it has a full senior team in place apart from a Head Chef which is currently being recruited for - ideal for a GM looking to bring a trusted Head Chef partner with them.
