Commis Chef Apprentice - The Bull Inn



16th October 2020

The Bull Inn is a Pub, Restaurant & B&B set in the heart of Suffolk just off the A14 in the beautiful historic village of Woolpit. Our venue comprises a main bar, pool room, conservatory and restaurant. They have an exciting opportunity for an Apprentice to join the team.

At The Bull Inn our team is one of the most important parts of our business. Without their hard work, dedication and individual quirkiness our customers would not get to experience everything our Pub, Restaurant & B&B has to offer.

Our core values:
“To enhance and please the palate with the freshest ingredients and flavours while surprising and exciting each of our guests with a personal touch on service.” 

Who we are looking for:

An individual who has a real passion and drive for food.
A focus on high service and presentation standards.
The ability to work well and communicate as part of a team!
A smart personal and professional appearance
You will be working in a small accomplished kitchen team who love to cook for our guests. We offer breakfast to our B&B guests, a full lunch menu and evening menu to our other diners. We serve on average 500 covers a week from our small kitchen. Our restaurant at present (due to covid) can hold up to 32 diners per sitting. Almost all our dishes are prepared on site.

Qualifications taken
Full Level 2 Commis Chef Apprenticeship

Things to consider
Food service can be stressful at times, but also extremely rewarding at others. It can get extremely hot in the kitchen during the summer months. Cleaning and washing up is part of the job, it is not just about the cooking and plating up. Many hours in the kitchen are unsocial, it is a fact of the job that you will be required to work evenings and weekends. You will be working 35 - 40 hours per week. Typical Kitchen Shifts: - Breakfast 6:30am - 10am - Lunch 10:30am - 3pm - Evening 6pm - 10:30pm - Sundays would be 10am - 4pm (as we only serve food at lunchtime)

What Next?
This role could lead to a full time permanent position upon successful completion of the Apprenticeship. It would have increased responsibility, pay benefits and further training opportunities within the company.
