Why does a career in hospitality work for you?
“The flexibility you have around your hours and the opportunity to relocate to different restaurant/locations.” – Nick, General Manager
Joining our Las Iguanas family will give you the opportunity to grow in your career within the hospitality industry. Career progression is offered to anyone who wants to take that next step in their career, or face a fresh challenge. At Las Iguanas we invest in our people; in 2018 alone we had a total of 205 internal promotions.
An empowering example of career progression is our General Manager of Cardiff Mermaid Quay- Nick. Starting as a Bartender he became familiar with his way around our cocktail menu. He then headed for a brief taste of kitchen life working as a Commis Chef. Nick was submersed behind the scenes of our Latin American experience, literally where the party starts!
After a few months experience in the kitchen Nick moved to front of house. He quickly progressed from Key Supervisor to a Manager in Training. He then spent his next few years as a Assistant Manager and then Deputy Manager at our two Bristol restaurants.
With 55 restaurants around the UK, Las Iguanas was able to accommodate Nick’s move to Wales. He transferred and was a Deputy Manager for our Swansea and Cardiff Mermaid Quay restaurants. Nick then progressed further in his career and became the General Manager for our Newport and Cribbs Causeway restaurants. He now resides as the General Manager of Las Iguanas Cardiff Mermaid Quay.
Working at Las Iguanas Nick was able to acquire knowledge from various job positions. He has progressed within his hospitality career in five Las Iguanas restaurants. Moving across two countries, over nine years. Nick expressed that as a General Manager his key focus is developing his Key Supervisors into Managers in Training.
