Retail - General, Retail - Food, Food and Beverage

Assistant Manager

  • Croydon
  • Between £28,750 to £33,500
  • Five Guys
  • 35-40 hours per week


Five Guys started out in Arlington, Virginia back in 1986 when Jerry and Janie Murrell offered sage advice to their young sons: “Start a business or go to college”. The business route won and the Murrell family opened their first burger joint named, simply, Five Guys – after the five brothers.


Five Guys is the fastest expanding restaurant company to hit the UK with 30 restaurants opening each year and further expansion in to Europe coming soon. 

Our award winning burgers have been the talk on the streets since 1986. Not only is our food handmade daily, the quality of our product is above perfection. Our restaurants have an electric atmosphere filled with fanatical customers... Another thing that makes us special… Our staff love working for us!



Here, you’ll do way more than just assist. You’ll *do*. As an Assistant Manager, you’ll be responsible for helping to create an environment in a restaurant where our customers leave feeling better than they did when they arrived – and that takes real talent.


It’s also about focusing on our crew as much as our customers, and you’ll take the lead, help without asking, continually chase extra responsibility, and coach, support and manage your team to deliver ever-greater performances.


Put simply, being an Assistant Manager means running a restaurant, not just a shift. And if you can put the effort in and be the role model we’re looking for, you won’t be a million miles away from your next step along the Five Guys career path which would be as a Deputy General Manager.



These days, we’re still just as much a family as we always have been. We look after each other. We have fun. We have tons of integrity. We’re enthusiastic. We’re competitive. And we just get it done – whatever the challenge. It's called having the Right Stuff - and if you’ve got it too, you could join us as an Assistant Manager.



  • You'll start on a salary between £28,750 to £33,500  – depending on your experience and where you are located.
  • An achievable quarterly bonus scheme worth up to £6,000 a year.
  • An awesome secret shopper bonus that can add about £2,000 per year to your salary.
  • 33 Days paid holiday
  • Life Assurance – your family is part of our family
  • Participation in a pension scheme
  • Free Burger and Fries when on shift – not to mention the milkshakes!
