What does the Chef Apprentice role look like?

Throughout the course of this 12-month apprenticeship you will work with experienced chefs in a fast paced and fun environment, as part of a high energy team.

The programme covers all basic aspects of cookery, including bread and dough, soups and sauces, seafood and shellfish, biscuits and cakes, plus much, much more.
Once back in the kitchen, you will practice and perfect your newly found skills with the support of your team.

  • As your skills develop, you will be expected to work with top quality fresh local produce, playing a hands-on role in preparing and cooking dishes to the required specification and standard. 


Some of the key responsibilities:

  • As part of your role, you will be self-driven and determined to deliver the best experience for our guests.
