A luxury country hotel near Lowestoft is looking for its first five apprentices to start their careers in the restaurant and kitchen.
Ivy House Country Hotel is currently recruiting two trainee chefs and three front-of-house trainees to be trained by general manager Keith Parton – a former training manager for the international hotel chain Forte and Le Meridien.
The apprentices will be based in its two AA rosette restaurant and kitchen under the eye of a Michelin-star-trained chef. They will work towards level two NVQ professional chef and front of house qualifications
They will be assessed by Lowestoft College, where they will attend once a week on day-release for theory and practical tuition in the classroom and the college's training restaurant, East.
Mr Parton, who has worked with celebrity chefs Marco Pierre White and Raymond Blanc, said: 'We have a standard here and are looking for enthusiastic and passionate young people with ambitions of a successful career learning the best techniques using the finest ingredients to take them to jobs in the best kitchens and also those who want to carve a career front of house with dreams of becoming a restaurant manager one day.'
