Exciting opportunity for budding chefs at the Chatsworth estate

Jordan Garratt, Chef de Partie with the Devonshire Group

The Duke and Duchess of Devonshire’s estate, which includes the famous local attraction of Chatsworth, is offering seven fantastic apprenticeships, to young people with a passion for food and a desire to train as a chef.

The successful apprentices will get the opportunity to work across the Devonshire Group’s three acclaimed restaurants on the Chatsworth Estate during the 13 month apprenticeship, where they will carry out work based learning with tutors from Learning Unlimited, part of the Chesterfield College Group. At the end of the apprenticeship programme successful learners will also be guaranteed positions at one of the restaurants and hotels within the group across Derbyshire and Yorkshire. 

Clare Clifton, Group Training & Development Manager for the Devonshire Group at Chatsworth said:

“We have an excellent track record of supporting apprentices and we are able to provide a range of career opportunities within the Group.  We encourage our chefs to continue their professional development with us and to undertake ongoing study.   In addition to the formal qualification and training, the apprenticeship will include the opportunity to gain experience across a range of restaurants - from fine dining to good pub food, working with our amazing chefs.”

Jordan Garratt, Chef de Partie with the Devonshire Group who trained at Chesterfield College and was a Young Chef of the Year finalist in 2015 told us:

“The learning possibilities are endless here. The variety of things you get to work on is fantastic and there is a great team atmosphere. Working here is one of the best places to be if you want career progression.”

The closing date for applications is 7th August.
