De Vere : Love food. Love your job.
De Vere logo

Love food. Love your job.

Working as a Chef here is rarely a set menu. One day, a conference lunch for 1,000. The next, a seven course dinner for 24. Our kitchens are varied, but we always look for the same thing – people who share our passion for creating memorable dining experiences.

We know Chefs work hard. That's why we offer competitive salaries and packages.

Training and Development

We know that Chefs want to be at the cutting edge of their trade. That’s why we’ve invested heavily in the development of our Chefs, to make sure we have industry leading training at the fingertips of all our kitchen colleagues, at all levels.

The development of the kitchen brigades is a key commitment within all of our properties and there are a range of Apprenticeship programmes to choose from to support this development. The right Apprenticeship programme for you will be dependent upon a combination of your existing knowledge and skills, the type of kitchen you work in and the nature of the menus you are expected to produce.

De Vere Apprenticeships bring together the best of training, work and education.
