    Culinary Apprentice Chef, Edinburgh Marriott

    Hi I’m Susan, a Culinary Apprentice Chef at Marriott.

    I chose to do an apprenticeship because I wanted to be able to learn the job as I feel that is the best method for me to learn.

    I did some research and from that I learnt about the Marriott Culinary Apprentice Scheme and realised that you get so much more out of it than many of the other apprenticeships out there. Another thing was that there are so many Marriott hotels all over the world meaning that when I do graduate from the Apprenticeship, I have the choice to go anywhere I want.

    I enjoy the chance to get to do different things that you wouldn’t normally get to do at other places, such as helping with conference functions and events and getting to cook whenever possible. I also enjoy the support of the other staff – when I need any support or help it will always be available. Also the fact they do things such as the apprenticeship workshops are great as I can focus on certain skills and meet different people from different places to learn the different ways of cooking.

    What I enjoy most about my apprenticeship at Marriott is how friendly and helpful everyone is. Also the opportunities that there are to develop my skills even further.
