Our Apprenticeships

We are looking for a motivated, passionate individual to join our team as an Apprentice Chef

You will be responsible for assisting in the preparation, cooking and presentation of food with the aim to delivering an excellent customer experience. You would also be required to undertake all reasonable duties as assigned by the Head Chef. 

  • Ensuring all menu items and specials are prepared, cooked and presented to company specification
  • Maintaining portion control and ensuring wastage is kept to a minimum
  • Receiving and checking food deliveries
  • Assisting the Head Chef with orders, stock taking, food hygiene, training and development of the team

You must have basic cooking skills and have the desire to learn new ones. You will have a good working attitude and enjoy the buzz of working in a busy kitchen environment. 

As part of this apprenticeship you will work towards an industry wide recognised Level 2 in Food Production and Cooking. The training will be delivered in the form of work-based learning and will include functional skills.

The Apprenticeships last for 12 – 15 months and will enable you to develop through a structured training programme. As an Apprentice with Marston’s, you will gain a nationally recognised Standard giving you an ideal grounding for a career in the hospitality industry. Learning is all on-site, so there is no need for our Apprentices to attend college, and our Apprentices are all paid national minimum wage, which is above the standard Apprentice rate. Throughout your Apprenticeship you will be supported by your Manager and our Apprenticeship provider too, so you will be given all the help and advice you need to succeed. Upon completion of the Marston’s Apprenticeship Programme, you will be set up to develop further through the Marston’s career path.
 
The Benefits and Rewards 

As you’d expect from a name like Marston’s the rewards and benefits are competitive to say the least, but perhaps more importantly there’s ample scope and opportunity to make your mark, plus the genuine prospect of running your own pub sooner rather than later. For starters we can offer:
 

  • A competitive hourly salary
  • The chance to work in a fun and friendly environment
  • 20% Discount Card* (across our managed estate) and 30% discount at work
  • Childcare voucher, stakeholder pension and save as you earn schemes (after a qualifying period)

  • Long service awards
  • Ability to develop through our Keyholder, Chef Development and Deputy Manager Programmes

Future Prospects

On-going training and development encouraged by the employer which will give the applicant the opportunity to move on to a full-time job.

Reality Check

The key dates are to be used as a guide only. Should the right candidate be found, this vacancy may close early.

About the employer

PUBS AT THE HEART OF EVERYTHING WE DO.

We've been running pubs and brewing beer in one form or another for over 180 years. Now we've got 13,000 people working for us and many more in partnership with us, and they all share our passion!

Our people; from the brewery teams, to the distribution fleet, to every single team member in our pubs, have helped us to become a thriving FTSE 250 listed company.

We have pubs that are traditional locals, family pub restaurants and fashionable town centre bars. While pubs may have changed a lot over the years, the reasons people use them hasn't. The pub is where we go to socialise, celebrate, commiserate, relax, reflect, regroup or simply enjoy a cold beer or a bite to eat at the end of a long day.

We are now one of the country's top pub businesses and the leading brewer of premium cask and bottled beers. We operate five breweries producing over 60 of the country's best loved ales at our sites in: Burton on Trent (Marston's), Oxfordshire (Wychwood & Brakspear), Cumbria (Jennings), Hampshire (Ringwood) and the West Midlands (Banks's).

We're rightly proud of our heritage - our people, our pubs and our beers. We work hard making sure that everything we do; from the beers we brew, to the pubs they are enjoyed in, and the people that serve them, are always the best that they can possibly be.
