It takes a very special kind of person to work at Shangri-La: someone with an eye for detail and the skills to perform. Someone with an attitude to deliver and a passion to delight.
Located on level 52, GŎNG, our signature bar derives its name from 'dougong' - a unique structural element of interlocking wooden brackets, used in traditional Chinese architecture and also featured in the bar.
The venue's modern Asian design was inspired by the mythical aspect of cinnabar - a mineral that has been used historically to create the 'dragon red' found in the walls of Chinese Imperial Palaces.
With a number of intimate chambers (Cocktail Bar, Champagne Bar and the Swimming Pool), the interior is also reminiscent of the traditional boudoirs of the West.
The dramatic backdrop of London’s skyline makes GŎNG the perfect place for sunset cocktails and late night drinks.
We currently have a vacancy for a Bar back joining our GŎNG team.
The Bar back will be responsible for ensuring the bar is fully stocked with ice, glassware, liquor, beer and garnishes adhering to Food and Beverage brand standards and by making sure everything is ready for the service. She/he will maintain the cleanliness and organisation of all supplies, equipment, work areas as well as guest areas in order to ensure the comfort and safety of our guests.
She/he will ensure that the F&B team achieves profitability and growth in line with our Core Values (humility, courtesy, respect, helpfulness and sincerity) at all times.
* Relevant experience in a similar role
* Exceptional organisational skills and attention to detail
