Hospitality Management Apprenticeship

Our Hospitality Management Development Apprenticeship (HMDA) is a three-year fast-track, for people with the drive and commitment to be a future manager in our businesses.

In your first year as a Hospitality Management Development Apprentice, you'll gain experience in the kitchen creating our popular dishes and in our bar and waiting teams creating memorable moments for our guests. As you develop, you'll then take on additional responsibilities including recruiting new team members, managing inductions and becoming a specialist in cocktails, cask ales, or wine.

Your first year will see you achieve a Level 2 Hospitality Services Licensed Retail Apprenticeship. You'll then decide whether to continue your development towards the role of Kitchen Manager or Assistant Manager.

Once you click apply now, you will be redirected to a third party company, Lifetime Training, who hosts details of, and provides services in relation to, our apprenticeship scheme. Lifetime Training's terms and conditions

The entry requirements for hospitality management apprenticeships

  • You must be over 18 years old, and not be in full-time education. You also need to have the right to work in the UK and no criminal convictions.
  • Our apprentices need to be hard working, with a positive attitude. We don’t expect you to have any relevant experience - you just need a passion for people and desire to learn.
Doing the HMDA has helped me achieve so much already – in 2 years I progressed to Shift Supervisor! With the apprenticeship, you progress as quickly as you want so long as you put the work in. I've had great help from management both front and back of house during my time doing the course, and gained masses of experience. My future goal is to become an Area Manager at Mitchells & Butlers!
