Chef apprenticeships

If you have little or no previous experience, but are passionate about cooking, our chef apprenticeship will develop your skillset and help you become a vital member of our kitchen team.

As a chef apprentice, we will give you on-the-job training to be able to create our signature dishes, making sure every dish leaves the kitchen perfect. Your daily tasks will include using varied cooking techniques to create dishes, all whilst keeping a safe and hygienic working environment and ensuring food safety. And you get to work in a fun, friendly atmosphere!


Our close-knit kitchen teams are made up of passionate chefs who will help you work towards your Food Production Level 2.

Our chef apprentices ensure food is cooked quickly and efficiently, and you’ll love every moment working in our busy kitchen.

Entry requirements for chef apprenticeships

You must be between school leaving age and 24, or school leaving age and 19 if you are in Scotland. You also need the right to work in the UK, no criminal convictions and not be in full time education.

We like our apprentices to be hard working, with a positive attitude and a desire to learn. A passion for people is vital, but we don’t expect you to have any relevant experience - we are looking for your personality and potential instead!

Our brands

Although I have been working part-time in the kitchen since I was 16, it’s been this year working for Mitchells & Butlers that has taught me how to be a chef. I’ve learnt so much through doing the apprenticeship and can’t wait to progress at M&B.
