If you're passionate about food and the art of cooking then a career as a chef may be tailor-made for you

Chefs work in a variety of settings to prepare, cook and plate food. You can work in restaurants, pubs, hotel restaurants, cruise ships, the armed forces and in contract catering. Responsibilities and job titles can vary depending on your specific role, the type of cuisine you produce and the nature of where you work.

The restaurant sector in the UK is a fast-growing one, which means there are many opportunities for dedicated, skilled chefs.

Due to the time and pressure demands of the job, a level of personal and professional commitment will be needed in order for you to learn, develop and succeed.
