Celebrating our 1,000th apprentice achiever at Mitchells & Butlers

Find out about Nicola's journey as our 1000th Mitchells & Butlers apprentice achiever.

Since the launch of our Mitchells & Butlers apprenticeships, the scheme has had a taste of success. We've been listed 34th in The Top 100 by Rate My Apprenticeship, nominated as Apprenticeship Employer of the Year by the 2018 National Apprenticeship Awards Service and won the HR Distinctions Awards Early Career Employment Programme – and now we're celebrating another milestone - our 1,000th apprenticeship achiever!

Nicola Hughes, from Sizzling Pubs, ‘The Journey's End' in Yardley, is officially, our 1,000th apprentice to complete the programme having recently completed her Level 2 Team Leader apprenticeship. We caught up with Nicola and she told us; “I found the apprenticeship really interesting as I was able to look into the business on a deeper level, giving me real insight into the restaurant management industry. I look forward to the future with Mitchells & Butlers as I climb my career ladder!”

Our very own superhero, Nicola managed to juggle running a football team and raise five children whilst completing her apprenticeship with us. Discussing Nicola's success on the scheme, Rebecca Lovell, from our partners Lifetime Training, said; “Nicola has been a pleasure to work with. She has shown commitment to her qualification even when circumstances were challenging, and she's always made me laugh during the time that we have worked together. I wish her well with whatever career step she takes next.”

To celebrate this incredible milestone, Vocational Learning Attraction Manager, Lauren Carroll took over a box of treats for Nicola and the team to enjoy. Lauren comments; “from the 16-year olds who joined us as entry level apprentices, through to the General Managers and Kitchen Managers studying our Higher apprenticeships, our business is full of passionate people who make a huge contribution to our business each and every day.”
