Apprenticeship Case Studies

  • Chloe Jones, Business Administrator

    “Applying for an Apprenticeship with Compass Group UK & Ireland was definitely one of the best decisions I have made.

    Since the day I joined Compass, I have enjoyed every working day as no two days are the same. The support and encouragement I have received from my line manager, wider team, the Compass apprenticeship team and my training provider has helped me keep focused and motivated. As well as gaining an official qualification, completing an Apprenticeship has helped me gain confidence. The Business Admin apprenticeship has opened many doors for me and widened my opportunities, many of which would have not been available to me otherwise. The best thing about completing an apprenticeship is that there is always something new to learn.

    I am excited to see what the future holds once I have completed my apprenticeship!”




  • Mateusz Hnatowski, Commis Chef Professional Cookery Apprentice L2

    “I started with Compass Group three years ago as a Kitchen Porter. I always wanted to work as a chef, so when I did get a chance to take the next step in my career, I took it.

    "I started working in a Compass staff canteen as commis chef, after that my line manager gave me a chance to work with hospitality and fine dining chefs and after a few months I started the Compass apprenticeships programme. I had seen the opportunities available to those on the apprenticeship and this completely drove my decision to start the course. 

    "During the program I have worked alongside the best Compass teachers, which has helped me to be much more confident at work and has increased my cooking skills. Now I am taking part in competitions - winning a few of them - and working as a key member of our kitchen brigade."
