These include LIONS@springwood, CSi Club Southport, Goodna Services Club, Gaythorne RSL, CSI Club Services Ipswich, Eagle Tavern and Club Burleigh.

Managing, supporting and growing venues of all types, size and locations. HCS has extensive experience working cohesively with all kinds of boards to ensure best practise operational standards are adhered to, from wage management and gross profit percentage through to industry purchasing practices. Unlike a standalone General Manager, the HCS management team has a wealth of specialist management, operations, finance and marketing experience, giving you quick accessibility to unprecedented industry expertise.

This means that your venue will not be locked into a one-direction, one-dimensional GM approach.

Instead, under HCS, you are recruiting a united team of proven general managers and senior managerial personnel – at a fraction of the price.

Additionally, our HCS Group Managers are actively involved with each of our venues daily – reviewing, testing and refining our strategies to ensure the successful delivery on all venue management outcomes. We also provide General Manager relief during periods of sickness, holidays, or while the venue is in transition between General Managers. Ensuring your venue is never without senior management.

Reporting to your board is an integral element of our service, ensuring that your venue’s General Manager is accompanied, in person, by our HCS Group Managers each month to provide a fully comprehensive business review. This provides the board with direct access to all four senior executive managers monthly to assess, review and refine the business performance.

We pride ourselves on our collaborative approach, giving our venues all the support and assistance that is needed to grow, thrive and prosper.
