We’re looking for an Apprentice Butcher

 

We’re looking for an Apprentice Butcher to join our award-winning butchery team.

If you are hardworking, friendly and love good food, then this is the perfect role for you!
No previous experience necessary, as all training will be provided, but a passion for food is a must.

You’ll work alongside our highly knowledgeable and reputable butchers, who’ll teach you modern techniques as well as the foundations of good butchery, alongside completing your Level 2 Apprenticeship Standards in Butchery. It’s an exciting opportunity which offers a successful and rewarding career in the craft of butchery, within our growing business.

This is a full-time position (Tuesday – Saturday) and will include online learning and training within our shop.

 

Our independent business has quickly become renowned for delivering the highest quality service and exceptional produce. We have a small but passionate team, allowing plenty of opportunity to shine and progress as our dynamic business grows.

You’ll be required to help in the daily tasks of running our butcher’s counter. This will involve being hands on with the day-to-day jobs, including customer service (both members of the public and wholesale customers), carcass butchery, sausage making, dry aging etc.

We work with Meat Ipswich to provide your apprenticeship. You’ll be allocated an external trainer who’ll regularly review your progress, as well as being mentored, supported and trained by us. The length of your apprenticeship is around 18 months, with the chance to join our team as a butcher once you have completed your training.

If you think this is the opportunity for you, please send your CV and a covering letter to Chris at shop@thechoppingblockpenrith.com, telling us why you want to master the craft of butchery and what you’ll bring to our team.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
