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.'
