What's been an unexpected benefit of the chef apprenticeship?

I loved learning about the ingredients I was using and why.

What do you like best about working for M&B?

My team and my managers - they're great!

What attracted you to a M&B apprenticeship?

I was recommended by a colleague and I knew it was the right opportunity for me because I wanted to develop my skills.

What has been your highlight of the apprenticeship experience?

I love being able to cook more things now using raw ingredients.

What is your favourite part of your job role?

Cooking in a busy kitchen - the atmosphere is great.

Has the apprenticeship made you view your job role differently?

I go back to work from my academy sessions and I feel so much more energised and excited.

Were there any challenges in your role, if you how did you overcome them?

The portals we use for tracking our learning can be difficult but that's where the trainers have been so helpful.

Would you recommend an apprenticeship to your team or friends?

Yes, 100% already.

What would you tell someone who is considering starting a M&B apprenticeship?

It's for your benefit – there's so much to gain and nothing to lose.

What is your next career goal?
