WHO WE ARE
Over the last 21 years, ONE SIX ONE has managed to establish itself as one of the few institutions of Melbourne Nightlife that showcases and is home to some of Australia’s best musical talent. The venue has been hugely successful since its humble beginnings and part of this success is down to the commitment and passion shown by the staff and management. Since 1999, the venue has not changed ownership and there are currently managers that have been with the business for over 10 years. We must be doing something right! And this has been evident from the support we are shown by our wonderful, loyal clientele.
The venue is based over 3 levels (including a rooftop). It houses 4 bars, a world class sound system and a famous light-up dancefloor! The capacity is over 300 people which the venue reaches every weekend without fail.
After the industry experiencing a turbulent 2020, ONE SIX ONE has come out of the blocks stronger than ever and is now looking to bolster the team to take us even further. We are currently trading 4+ nights a week and have recently expanded our promotions, bookings and events teams and we now have opportunities within the operations of the venue to help support them.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
So, our ever-expanding management team is now looking for three new FULL-TIME managers to join the crew. Responsibilities within the roles may vary depending on the experience of the successful candidate(s) however, a minimum level of previous operational management experience within a fast-paced environment will be expected.
Experience preferred may be in any of the following fields:
- Bars management (i.e. menu design; stock control; stocking policy, ordering procedure, cocktail training, bar efficiency, etc.)
- Shift management (i.e. department liaison, staff allocation, floor management, venue maintenance, security management, compliance management, cash management, office management, operational systems development, etc.)
- Floor Management (i.e. bookings procedures, sales, service procedures, FOH duties, etc.)
