Our carvery includes a choice of three 14-hour slow-cook meats, along with a selection of potatoes and choice of seasonal vegetables - plus as much gravy as you like! 

As an Apprentice Chef you don't need to have tons of experience in a kitchen, though it can help. We'll teach you everything you need... All you need is a willingness to learn, a genuine love for all things food and the passion to create amazing dishes.

  • Adhere to company policies and procedures and licensing laws
  • Be involved and contribute at all team meetings
  • Carry out instructions as given by management and head office

Benefits:

  • 33% staff discount at Greene King managed pubs
  • Friends and Family discount at Greene King managed pubs
  • Discounts off high-street retail brands
  • Access to our Employee Assistance Programme
  • Enrolment into the company pension scheme (if eligible)
  • Access to Wagestream - providing a variety of financial tools to support money management
  • Up to 28 days holiday

What your apprenticeship includes:

  • A mixture of face to face and skype/phone catch ups every 4 - 6 weeks
  • 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
