Apprentice Chef - £10 per hour plus service charge – Brandshatch Place Hotel – Kent

Are you considering a career as a Chef? We want you to become Hand Picked!

By completing your Chef apprenticeship with Hand Picked Hotels you get to work as part of an experienced team whilst gaining your Level 2 Chef Qualification. This gives you the opportunity to earn whilst you learn to be a professional Chef!

This isn’t just about taking food out of a freezer and popping it in the oven or deep fat fryer – you will be trained to transform fresh ingredients into high quality food for our hotels. These are skills for life.

Chefs are always in high demand and your friends and family will love your new skills! Many of our Hand Picked Chefs have travelled the world or have cooked for the great and the good. They wouldn’t change their career as a Chef for anything.

As a Hand Picked Apprentice Chef you will be provided with excellent training and development both from our own Chefs and the HIT Training Assessors.

What’s in it for you?

  • £10 per hour rising to the current Commis Chef salary per hour for the hotel you are at on completion of your level 2 course. We can guarantee you will never be paid under £13 per hour as a commis chef.
  • A share of service charge – 100% of which is split between the team
  • Your earliest start time will be 8am and your latest finish time will be 9.30pm
  • We can guarantee that you will not be required to work split shifts and will be given one full weekend off in four - 40 hours per week split over 5 days with 2 days off together
  • Chef whites provided
  • Set of Hand Picked Chef knives
  • During your apprenticeship you will attend a number of offsite Apprentice Chef Masterclasses to develop your skills and techniques and we will reimburse the travel costs
  • Use of Health Club facilities including gym, swimming pool and fitness classes where available
  • 28 days holiday rising to 33 days with service – we think it’s fair to value loyalty
  • £30 staff stays with Hand Picked Hotels per room Bed & Breakfast PLUS 25% discount of all food & drink at our Hotels. Yes, it’s as good as it sounds!
  • Annual loyalty awards (like afternoon teas and overnight stays)
