You don't need any experience as we can teach you everything! If you are willing to learn and be proud to work with us, we can show you exactly what it takes to become a vital team member in any kitchen.

You'll join a close-knit team, so you'll get the family feel from day one. You'll take on a full-time role in the kitchen under the supervision of passionate chefs alongside your training. Working as a team to serve up great food in a fun, friendly atmosphere will help you develop the skills necessary to prepare and cook food quickly and efficiently.

Not only do you gain a Level 2 Hospitality Food Production and Cooking Apprenticeship, you will be able to support the running of our kitchens, creating some amazing moments making sure that quality never slips for our guests!

What will your day-to-day involve?

  • Learn how to create dishes using the correct methods, getting every dish right
  • Keep a safe and hygienic working environment
  • Ensure food safety when storing, preparing and cooking food
  • Bring a huge appetite for learning
  • Bring energy and enjoyment
  • Be part of great team moments
  • Being proud of what you achieve

And it's all taught through:

  • A mixture of face to face and remote visits every 4 - 6 week
  • 24-hour access to course learning materials for distance learning
  • A mixture of on and off the job training, including workshops and webinars
  • Reviews every 12 weeks with the Apprentice, Line Manager and Lifetime Trainer
  • Feedback sessions to discuss progress
  • Obtain Functional Skills in English and Maths
  • 30 hours paid work every week

And it doesn't end there!
