Imagine walking into work each day at one of the nation's most iconic pubs, restaurants, or hotels. You love creating memorable experiences and get to do this in a fast-paced, vibrant environment, all while you develop new skills and sharpen your existing ones.

This can be your reality with a Greene King Apprenticeship. We're offering the perfect blend of earning and learning for ambitious individuals looking to craft an exceptional career in hospitality.

Our diverse apprenticeship options provide tailored training for all types of hospitality careers, including:

  • Bar & Waiting Apprenticeships: Master the art of friendly service, from pouring the perfect pint to crafting Insta-worthy cocktails. You'll gain expertise in customer care, food & drink knowledge, and cash handling – ideal for aspiring bar or front-of-house superstars.

  • Culinary Apprenticeships: For the foodies out there, nurture your culinary creativity by training under our experienced kitchen teams. From fundamental techniques to menu development and plating, you'll become a whiz at bringing delicious dishes to the table.  

  • Team Leadership Apprenticeships: Kickstart your journey to a management role by developing the skills needed to inspire and coach high-performing teams. You'll cover everything from operations and compliance to communication and motivational techniques.

No matter which path you choose, you'll benefit from our winning combination of hands-on training and classroom-based learning. As Claire's inspiring story shows, our apprentices go from strength to strength:

“I've grown so much through this apprenticeship – becoming a much better leader and mentor to my team. The opportunities here are exceptional."

A Launchpad for Your Career

What really sets a Greene King Apprenticeship apart is the clear pathway for progression. Our commitment to promoting from within means your training could open doors to supervisory, management, or even multi-site operational roles as you demonstrate your capabilities.

As Claire says, "After this Level 3 Supervisor Apprenticeship, I've got my sights set on the Management Development Programme next!"

A major draw of our Apprenticeships is the opportunity to earn while you learn, kick starting your career without racking up student debt. You'll be bringing in a paycheck from day one as you work towards a nationally recognised qualification.

But the benefits don't stop there. As an inclusive, award-winning employer, you'll have unbeatable training, knowledgeable mentors, and a supportive environment that empowers you to embrace new challenges.

"Working for a company that truly cares about its people, with incredible support during tough times like lockdown – that's what makes Greene King so special."
