Well now is the time, as we have a very exciting opportunity for an Apprentice Commis Chef to join our team at Twickenham Stadium.

You do not need to have any experience as full training will be provided as part of the Apprenticeship. This is ideal for a school leaver or someone wanting a career change. Apprenticeships are for everyone regardless of age!

Over a 12-15 month period you will be trained to become a fully Qualified Commis Chef.

More about the role:


An apprenticeship is a funded programme where an individual learns new skills, knowledge and behaviours in a chosen sector. An apprenticeship will enable you to work and earn a wage whilst developing and gaining new skills as an employee.

Alongside your day to day duties, you will complete the Commis Chef Level 2 Apprenticeship. This is a nationally recognised qualification and the primary objective of the Commis Chef is to learn and understand how to carry out the basic functions in every section of the kitchen. You will attend college 1 day per week which will be included in your contracted hours. All travel expenses will be covered by your employer. You are not expected to complete any of your Apprenticeship work outside of your normal working hours and will be given set time each week to complete your work.

  • Hard-working

  • What you’ll be doing:

    Based in our busy kitchen at Twickenham Stadium, duties would be varied. You would complete the Level 2 Commis Chef apprenticeship. Once the course is completed, we would encourage the Level 3 apprenticeship to gain supervisory skills and a promotion.

    Tasks could include, but are not limited to:

  • the preparation of food,
  • baking
