Apprentice Brewer


Description

Brewer Apprentice  

We have a couple of exciting opportunities at Hare Brewery, for two new Brewer Apprentices to join our well-established team and learn a highly sought-after craft from experts of their trade.  

The successful applicants will both develop a high level of knowledge, skills and the behaviours needed to become competent and established Brewers in a multi-award-winning production team. 

Role Scope

We produce high quality beer in cask, keg, bottle and can, whilst upholding the highest possible standards. Our Brewer Apprentices undertake a 24 month, Level 4 qualification, where they work closely with other brewers to learn and practice the new skills and gain an internationally recognised qualification. 

During your apprenticeship you will develop your knowledge, behaviours and skills through a mixture of academically based training sessions (at Nottingham Brewing School) and practical experience, as part of our well-established brewing and packaging teams. You will be responsible for ensuring you attend all training related workshops or appointments, keep on top of your theory work, keep clear and up to date records of your training whenever required and take responsibility for everything else that will form a part of your development process. You also will be expected to communicate effectively with your training provider, your line manager and company liaison with regards to your apprenticeship.

You will be expected to learn how to operate in a safe and compliant manner, gaining a high level of knowledge around all applicable regulatory requirements. You will also develop the expertise needed to enable you to understand and react to any information related to the quality and consistency of beer at all stages of production and packaging. You will develop and become able enough to take a key role in all aspects of the brewing and packaging process, including the intake of raw materials; all elements of preparation, control, processing, and filtering; the recording of the brewing process and the safe transfer of beer according to standard operating procedure. You will learn how to package beer into cask and keg, and bottle, become competent with regards to CIP cleaning of all brewing plant and equipment. You will maintain the brewing and production area in a clean, tidy organized and hygienic manner, complete all required quality checks and to maintain accurate written brewing records. You will also engage in public facing activities such as product launches or beer tasting sessions.
