We can offer you a secure, permanent and exciting career. A nationally recognised City & Guilds Level 2 Apprenticeship qualification in Professional Cookery. And the chance to earn while you learn. As an apprentice in the Compass ‘Chef Academy’, you’ll enjoy all this and more as you develop your skills and prospects in some of the country’s top entertainment, sporting and business venues.

Main responsibilities

Working in one of our busy kitchens — from football clubs to private schools — we’ll choose the right place for you that’s not too far from home. It’ll be as challenging as it is varied, but don’t worry. We’ll provide all the support and training you need. The dishes that you cook each day will count towards your qualification and you’ll have time off to attend dedicated training days with your Academy Manager and other apprentices.

Within 12 months, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a culinary star of the future. Once you complete your apprenticeship you could be promoted to Commis Chef within Compass Group UK & Ireland. We’ll also make every effort to develop your skills and knowledge so that with time, and hard work, you could potentially even become one of our Head Chefs.

Ideal candidate

We’re ideally looking for enthusiastic people who are aged 16-24, UK residents who are not currently studying on any other type of course. Sound like you?
