At Whittlebury we believe talent should be grown from within and we offer a variety of Apprenticeship courses to build our future talent including:

Hospitality Team Member Level 2 in Food and Beverage

Hospitality Team Member Level 2 in Housekeeping

Commis Chef Level 2

Our apprenticeships offer first class training which runs alongside your employment allowing you to gain hands on-experience whilst earning a full time above minimum wage salary and ultimately achieving a nationally recognised qualification.  Our courses run from 12 to 18 months and offer a mixture of remote and in person training and start dates run regularly throughout the year.

Your journey with us starts as soon as you receive a job offer; from that moment we will support you to be the person you know you can be in your chosen career.  During your apprenticeship you will:

  • Be employed on at least £9 per hour on a full time basis with 20% of your time dedicated to learning new skills
  • Receive our amazing benefits package including 28 days (for full time staff) paid annual leave, Westfield Health Care, Leisure Club and Golf Membership, up to 50% off food and beverage when you dine with us, free meals whilst on duty, discounts on hotel stays and many other exciting benefits.
  • Build relationships within the business which will allow you every opportunity to continue to progress with us following the successful completion of your course.

As a business, we have strong values and recognise that our employees are fundamental to our success.  We encourage all employees to immerse themselves in the business and build a future.  We will always support any employee who shows willingness and enthusiasm. 

When will I need to work?

We offer a 24 hour a day, 7 days a week service to our customers and expect our apprentices to work a variety of shifts to ensure they fully experience all parts of the business.  However, we recognise that working different shifts each day can be a barrier to some apprentices who rely on public transport, lifts from third parties or have other commitments and we do offer a fixed shift pattern for those who require it.

If you have not been to Whittlebury Park before and would like to have a look prior to making your application, please email us at and a member of our HR Team will be happy to help to arrange a meeting and give you a tour.
