Lentil as Anything is a charity that runs four restaurants in Melbourne and Sydney, a food security program encompassing food relief and food rescue, two urban kitchen gardens, a pre-accreditation certificate and a range of training programs. It serves around 1 million meals each year and is supported by over 2000 volunteers.
Lentil as Anything is more than just a restaurant. We are a movement for social fairness and inclusion. For 20 years we’ve created an ecosystem based on valuing people over profit, where social classes, abilities, cultures and beliefs are all given an equal opportunity to gain skills and help their fellow humans.
We are looking for two organised, energetic and hands-on Restaurant Managers with a passion for people and social justice to join the management team at our Abbotsford and Thornbury restaurants. This is a very varied role that involves day-to-day management of the restaurant operations, building of new event calendars and improvement of business processes. Each day will be different at the restaurant and you will have the opportunity to think creatively and put new and ambitious ideas into practice.
To be perfect for this role you will have 3+ years’ experience in managing a restaurant or other hospitality business and working within a multicultural team. You will have experience in the end-to-end management of events and fundraisers and will enjoy bringing people together to create exciting ventures. You will also have a strong knowledge of organisational processes and tools and be excited to share your skills to improve the business. You will be confident and kind in dealing with a range of stakeholders and work in a collaborative manner with the whole Lentil as Anything team.
Unfortunately, at this time this is a volunteer position with the possibility of a full-time paid role once we are able to reopen as normal. We will talk to you about your specific circumstances at interview.
