Get a taster of kitchen life – a 6-month journey experiencing each area of the kitchen from Kitchen Porter to working alongside the Head Chef.

You’ll work for Brunning and Price, a well-respected pub restaurant company with fabulous kitchens, fresh food, and good quality ingredients. You’ll be part of a team and learn all about working in a kitchen brigade.

Over the period of your Kickstart placement you’ll gain qualifications and essential kitchen skills, and you’ll also gain confidence and a range of additional skills that will help you find work in the future.

In this job, you’ll shadow experienced members of the team to learn how food recipes are created and followed, how a busy service operates and you’ll be given support to create and present your own dishes including starters and puddings.

You’ll learn the importance of health and safety and food safety in the kitchen as well as gaining practical skills including knife handling and uses, using kitchen equipment, food preparation, cooking and stock control.
