Job Title: Bartender
Primary Location: NGA-Nigeria-Lagos-Renaissance Lagos Ikeja HotelVIEW ON MAP
Job Number: 17001A1N
Job Category: Food and Beverage & Culinary
Brand: Renaissance Hotels
Position Type: Non-Management/Hourly
Renaissance bartenders have the knowledge and passion to create intriguing, indigenous, and delicious cocktails. They have the basics down, but are constantly on the look-out for new trends, micro-local offerings, and guests’ evolving needs.
The Renaissance bartender is not just a beverage enthusiast, but also the host of the space. The bartenders will use their knowledge and expertise to make the bar look and function flawlessly. He or she builds relationships with others across the hotel (from housekeeping, to parking, to the Navigator, and beyond) and in the community, to anticipate and deliver on our guests’ needs. This individual should be passionate about the guest service experience, but also have an eye for detail – from the money that moves through their hands, to the information they provide to guests, to the accuracy of their reports.
No matter what position you are in, there are a few things that are critical to success: making sure you have a safe work environment, following company policies and procedures, ensuring your uniform and personal appearance are clean and professional, maintaining confidentiality, and protecting company assets. As a bartender, you’ll be on your feet and moving around (stand, sit, or walk for an extended period of time) and taking a hands-on approach to your work (move, lift, carry, push, pull, and place objects weighing less than or equal to 25 pounds without assistance). You’ll need to make sure you have everything you need when you need it (reach overhead and below the knees, including bending, twisting, pulling, and stooping). Doing all these things well (and other things that come your way) is the foundation of the job. Ultimately, the real hallmark of the Bartender role is driving a best-in-class guest experience, inspiring guests and ambassadors alike to live life to discover.
