10 Feb Heddy’s supports local talent with apprenticeship
In 2015 we took on an apprentice in the kitchen – Zac Cubbon, then 16. Zac spent 14 months completing his apprenticeship and since then has continued to work in our kitchen.
We are incredibly proud to have supported Zac in his ambitions and to have given him the chance to make a start in his chosen career. With National Apprenticeship Week (6th to 10th March) fast approaching, it’s a great time to celebrate the concept of apprenticeships and to spread the word about the benefits for both businesses and young people.
During his time here, Zac has learned not just basic cooking skills but has also had valuable experience in a busy kitchen, learned about Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine, helped devise and cook specials as well as the regular menu and confirmed that his future lies in the world of cooking.
Taking on Zac has been a really positive experience for us at Heddy’s and we’re delighted to have trained Zac and set him on the path in his career. Zac will shortly be moving onto a new job and we are currently searching for a new apprentice for the restaurant as we really believe it’s a great way of nurturing talent and supporting young people – as well as the benefits to us in having a young, enthusiastic person working in the kitchen.
