The Fuller's Chef Apprenticeship Programme is an incredible opportunity to learn, thrive and succeed; and we want you!

Who we are looking for?

Fuller's are recruiting for talented people to go onto our Chef Apprenticeship Programmes. These people will become the Fuller’s Head Chefs of the future. We believe our Apprenticeship Programmes are the best in the industry. But don’t take our word for it, listen to what our current apprentices have to say about the programme. All we need from you is determination and drive to succeed. If you possess these qualities, we will make your career thrive.

What kind of Apprentice roles are available?

We have 2 Chef Apprenticeship Programmes:

- Commis Chef (this used to be NVQ Diploma in Professional Cookery Level 2)

- Chef de Partie (this used to be NVQ Diploma in Professional Cookery Level 3)

There are a couple of things we need to understand about you before you start our programme but we will invite you to a day at University or College to find these things out. We also pay for your Apprenticeship; so no student debt!


When can you start?

We have 2 intakes for each of the programmes, one in March and one in September. We recruit all year round so you can join us at any time and go onto the next available programme. We believe that having structured intakes onto our programme gives you the best start to an apprenticeship and you will be part of a group that all develop together and help each other along the way.


What can you expect from Fuller's?

Working in a Fuller’s Kitchen is exciting and will challenge you every day. This, from our experience, will stretch you and become a great chef capable of working in any Kitchen worldwide. You will receive training with some of the best catering lecturers in the country. One day a week will be spent at University or College (depending on your location) and then you will spend 4 days at your pub honing the skills you have learnt at training. All of this time will be paid for. We will also pick up the bill for your travel to and from training.

How have other people got on?

We have some great apprentices in our pubs at the moment. Take Chris (The Old Customs House, Portsmouth) for example. He has completed his Commis Chef Apprenticeship with us and is now one of the first to go onto the Chef de Partie programme. Go and try his food, but be quick though, he is in high demand based on the dishes he has created! Callum (The Swan Hotel, Staines) is currently on our Commis Chef Programme and has only been with us for 11 months. His head Chef Charlie has trained him to a level whereby he is running the pass on busy services and all before his 18th birthday, what an achievement.
