We feel a duty to take action on the skills shortage in our areas, particularly in the rural areas of some of our pubs and the challenges that face us with our sister sites the Channel Islands. We prioritised chef training at the beginning, working with HIT training to develop our own chef academy within level 2 commis chef apprenticeship accreditation. With a tailored programme that meets our standards and ideals, supporting our chefs with 1-1 mentoring, stages in different kitchens around the estate and paid work days in other aspiring business.
Alongside the training workshops, our Apprentices visit our suppliers, take in demos on the produce we buy and learn new skills and respect for the ingredients we use. Crucially all apprentices rotate around the estate to continue their learning under different chefs in different environments; all with the aim of creating CDP’s, sous chefs and head chefs of the future.
We are currently recruiting and taking in internal applications for next year’s cohort so get in touch if the above sounds like it is for you.
We’re always on the look our for new team members in our pubs. Here are some of our current vacancies. If there isn’t a vacancy that catches your eye just at moment, why don’t you get in touch with us for a chat?
