Rooftop gin bar seeks manager

Churchills, a new rooftop gin bar with multi-million dollar views, is inviting bar industry movers and shakers from across the world to speak to them about one of the most exciting positions of 2019.

“We are looking for an industry leader that can help us create something iconic. This isn’t a role for the unambitious or faint-hearted. It is going to be an exciting, fast-paced position with an opportunity to make a mark on the bar scene here in New Zealand,” said Paul Gallop, general manager at Four Points by Sheraton Auckland. “We’re keen to hear from talented managers that are passionate about their craft and are excited at the prospect of building their own business at Auckland’s first true rooftop bar.”

Due to open in the Auckland CBD in May, Churchills is the crowning jewel of Four Points by Sheraton Auckland, Marriott International’s first hotel in New Zealand. Taking up part of the 20th floor, the 150 square metre bar makes full use of the sweeping, panoramic vistas of the city. There are extensive views to the west with balconies on both the north and south sides. Nowhere else in Auckland can visitors sip on a craft gin and tonic or glass of Sir Winston Churchill’s favourite champagne while enjoying views from the Waitemata Harbour through to the Waitakere Rainforest.

The successful candidate will have a significant part to play in many of the bar’s finishing details. They will be granted the freedom and opportunity to express their own creativity and to really make Churchills their own. In return, the hotel is looking for a manager that is self-motivated, has strong industry networks and comes from a world class bar background.
