Apprenticeships

Exciting development opportunities

Apprenticeships provide exciting development opportunities to all of our bar, kitchen and hotel teams. They give you the opportunity to learn while you earn – from associates right through to management.

Whether you’re applying for a new role or looking to progress to the next level, we have the perfect training opportunity for you.

Available programmes

Wetherspoon partners with leading apprenticeship providers to offer a range of hospitality and business management apprenticeships, from entry level 2 (equivalent to 5 GCSEs), designed for our associates, all the way through to level 6 (degree), for our management teams.

Apprenticeships are available for our teams in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Eligibility requirements differ slightly in each country.

Rewarding careers

From Cambridge to Clacton and Beccles to Blackburn – we have achievers all over the shop.

As well as training and progression, our apprenticeships offer skills, knowledge and confidence-building – they have kick-started so many rewarding careers with the company.

With various levels of hospitality apprenticeship opportunity on offer, nationwide, there are so many career paths available to everyone.

We are so proud of the success gained by all of our apprenticeship achievers. As a company, we are committed to offering each staff member the best opportunity to succeed and grow within the company, including studying for qualifications and apprenticeships.

Earn and learn

With 10 apprenticeship programmes, Wetherspoon has much to offer ambitious workers.

During March 2022, the 15th annual National Apprenticeship Week brought together the entire apprenticeship community to celebrate the value, benefit and opportunity of apprenticeships.

The theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2022 was ‘build the future’ (#buildthefuture), reflecting on how apprenticeships can help individuals to develop the skills and knowledge for a rewarding career – and how Wetherspoon can develop a talented workforce, equipped for the future.
