Job Introduction


Main Responsibilities

Do you want the opportunity to earn as you learn? Then this Kitchen Team Member Apprenticeship offers you the best of both worlds.

As an apprentice kitchen team member you will be working towards the Level 2 Production Chef Apprenticeship standard over the course of 14 months, so if you have the desire to develop yourself and your career, this may be the Apprenticeship for you!

The Pizza Hut Restaurants Apprenticeship programmes offer a qualification at every step of the career ladder and did you know that 80% of our Restaurant General Managers started out as team members just like you and are now running multi million pound businesses.

It’s your time to show us just how much you shine in the kitchen. And to show our guests how the world’s most famous pizza got to be as popular as it still is today.


These fantastic roles will turn you into a true pizza expert. You’ll learn supreme skills and our management team will give you support like you wouldn’t believe.


There aren’t many people out there with as much positive energy as you. And you’ll put that brilliant personality into every dish you prepare. It’s about making our guests want to come back for more. And more. And more. So you’ll need real love for The Hut and passion for pizza.


Being a great team player is crucial. And you’ll also have bags of creativity. We’re looking for people with a sense of ease, whether dealing with other team members or managers. The perfect blend of skills.


Role highlights – just a taste!


  • Making sure we’re amazing in the kitchen, every single time
  • Following recipes to perfection – and presenting the food that way too
  • Keeping a keen eye on food quality – never letting a wrong-looking dish slip by
  • Making such a great job of the daily clean-up that the big weekly one is a piece of cake
  • Always thinking: ‘This is one restaurant. We’re one team!’
  • Being truly focused on Health & Safety/Food Hygiene regulations


We’ll give you world-class training, a culture that rewards every great job done and tons of other benefits on top. As for career progression, there’s as much as you can handle!

About The Company

Pizza Hut Restaurants creates magical moments for millions across the UK, sharing delicious food and special times. We have been around for quite a while now, (48 years in fact), and we know a thing or two about how to adapt, facing all the challenges of 2020 by continuing to serve in Hut and also at home. We are optimistic about the future and with your help, looking forward to reuniting more friends and family very soon.

However we are more than just a restaurant, we are also a diverse, strong community and during the good times and the bad we work together to demonstrate our culture and vision to be the ‘Most Loved Place to Eat and Work’. Everyone is welcome, we are proud to be an equal opportunities employer and our people make us what we are today.

To enjoy working as part of our team, you will be the sort of person who is continuously looking to improve and make a difference. Development is so important to us that in January 2020 we became a ‘school’ formally certified to deliver Apprenticeship qualification programmes right up to foundation degree level. This year particularly, we are very proud of our students who have overcome the challenges of the pandemic to graduate and go on to achieve great things.

However, whether you are studying with us or considering a particular role, we encourage and stretch all of our people to unlock their inner potential and become their best selves, not just in the workplace but also in day to day life. We call it ‘skills for life’ and we coach around developing constructive behaviours and techniques to help build positive mental health.

We also have a strong sense of responsibility and we carefully balance business realities, while limiting our environmental impact and making a positive difference within society.  During 2020 we were proud to have been able to support the front line NHS and Care Homes by providing 110,000 meals and we continue to provide food for the homeless.
