Assistant Manager: Taproom

This is an amazing opportunity! If you want to do more than just pour beer and want to be part of a fast-growing company – this could be the right job for you.

Henderson Brewing Co. is located in the Lower Junction – recently named as a break-out neighbourhood by the New York Times. We combine great beer making with great stories about Toronto and our community. We also believe in making innovative & approachable beers that reflect the stories and culture of our great city.

You will be reporting to our Taproom General Manager and will be part of a great team of fellow taproom staff.

As the Assistant Taproom Manager your primary task will be to ensure that the Henderson taproom experience is fun, friendly and informative for our guests. Your primary shifts will be on evenings and weekends but you will be asked to work a day shift here and there. Your secondary task will be to ensure that any events taking place in the brewery run smoothly. You will succeed by coaching staff in a hands-on manner and leading by example. You will excel by keeping calm when the taproom is busy. You will show your commitment to good beer, the community, and have a fun, down-to-earth sensibility. Incredibly high organizational and customer engagement skills are essential.

Responsibilities (including but not limited to)
> Work in & run the taproom on weekends & several weekday evenings – this means our busiest times when the taproom is at its fullest

> Ensure strong team development, including team-building events

> Maintain adequate stock through efficient inventory management

> Ensure guest satisfaction & that all customer concerns are addressed and handled professionally, leaving the customer with a positive resolution

Who You Are
You like beer (you don’t have to love it, but like it – you know the difference between an I.P.A & an Amber Ale) and have visited the brewery. A self-starter. A team player. Someone who wants to be part of something special and is not afraid to get their hands dirty. You are outgoing and can lead your team through a busy Saturday or a group of strangers on a tour through the brewery.

This job is 40 hours/week (5 shifts) but will allow you to have a life outside of work. On weekends we close at 11pm & you should be done by midnight but we do stay open later for special events on occasion. 

> Completion of high school & College/CEGEP/vocational or technical training
> Minimum of 2 years of work experience in a retail or service environment, managerial experience preferred.
> Valid Driver’s License Valid Smart Serve with RS designation
> Excellent customer service skills
> Strong communication skills, both written and oral
