Hospitality Apprenticeship North East is a programme developed by hoteliers in the north east of Scotland to attract young, vibrant talent into the hospitality industry locally. We have opportunities for hospitality apprentices and chef apprentices.

Hospitality is a career packed with variety and the opportunity to meet, host and interact with people from all walks and corners of life and the chance to work anywhere around the globe.

We’re recruiting a new generation of hospitality apprentices to join the programme in Autumn 2023 – team workers, bright minds and personable individuals who will become the industry’s future, delivering the exceptional hospitality for which our region is famed. Our chef apprentice is based wholly in the kitchen.

This is a paid apprenticeship – where our partner hotels have committed to pay all of our apprentices the national minimum wage rather than the lower apprentice rate for the duration of the apprenticeship. The apprenticeship is 18 months long and you’ll receive an SVQ level 5 on completion.

Growing and developing the talent of the future is crucial to the aspirations and objectives of industry, particularly this year as the industry faces such a challenging time. Our hotels are committed to Hospitality Apprenticeship North East following a highly successful first year for the programme and for the 2019 intake of apprentices.

This hospitality and chef apprenticeships offer a defined career development route for young people who choose the hospitality sector, preparing them for leadership roles within what is a diverse, dynamic and growing industry.

It’s about inspiring, nurturing and developing young people to shine by equipping them with a recognized qualification and skills for life that will help them shine out in the vibrant hospitality sector.

Come and join us this autumn.
