Company and Programme Description – We are CH&CO, a group of chefs, nutritionists and people pleasers with a shared passion for food that fuels emotional positivity as well as physical wellbeing. In a world where what we consume is becoming ever faster and more disposable, we’re proud to take a more thoughtful, mindful approach to the food experiences we source, prepare and present. As an independent hospitality caterer we employ more than 6,200 people and with a turnover of £300m, we operate at over 750 locations across the UK and Ireland. From cafes, restaurants and impeccable fine dining in your workplace, to great coffee, cake and experiential events in some of the worlds most iconic destinations.
Our vision is simple. we want to provide opportunities for our people – no matter who they are or here they work – to grow within the business. We will support their growth, from apprenticeship to the board, and give them room to outperform the competition and become well known for doing the right thing. That’s why we’re making a commitment to support the development of not only existing employees, but any new team members coming into our business. We’ll do this by offering new talent an apprenticeship pathway, funded by our Apprenticeship Levy. Plus, by partnering with some of the industry’s best apprenticeship providers, we’re creating opportunities for the entire business, informed by the skills gap and skill development opportunities.
