Thousands of jobs on offer at pub chain

Have your say

MORE than 2,000 apprenticeships are on offer over the next year at one of the largest operators of restaurants, pubs and bars in the UK.

Mitchells & Butlers, which owns chain Ember Inns, the firm behind the Village Inn in Park Gate and the Woodpecker, in London Road, Waterlooville, has supported apprenticeships over the past two years, and it is aiming to offer more at its 1,700 locations nationwide.

Susan Martindale, group HR director said: ‘We don’t just want to develop a successful apprenticeship scheme, we want to offer the best scheme in the hospitality industry.

‘Our schemes provide new job opportunities for school leavers and combine their employment with layers of exceptional tutorage, mentoring and assessment.

‘They work across our portfolio of brands, learn from our experienced teams, gain a professional qualification and have a real opportunity to progress up the ladder.

‘They are the future talent and we look forward to the apprentices progressing their career journey with us.’

The scheme offers apprenticeships in bar and waiting hospitality management and also a chef apprenticeship.

There are about 100 hospitality management development apprenticeships available which will be open for applicants online until Monday.
