Job Description


Hotel Zed Tofino is completely unlike any other resort. It has the swankiest 1970’s retro-chic vibe and here we are all Rebels Against the Ordinary. We also have ridiculously fun amenities like the world’s first bike-through lobby, secret arcade, psychic’s den, mini disco, tetherball and so much more.

Key to our unordinary vibe is ROAR, our live-fire restaurant and bar that exudes the roar of crashing waves, the roar of the flames and the roar of our rebellious nature. We are seeking a kind and loving rebel to lead our team as ROAR’s new Restaurant Manager.


Working at Hotel Zed and ROAR is different than working anywhere else, and we don’t just say that. We’re a family-owned, BC-based hospitality company that LEADS WITH LOVE and our number one metric as a company is the happiness of our staff, who we call our Fam-Jam.

Key to our success is living by our four Core Values everyday:

Be Real
Have Fun
Make Everything Better
Have Each Other’s Backs

Here we want our Fam-Jam to feel well taken care of by us and by one another. That’s who we are!
