Pret A Manger Apprenticeship - London
School Leaver Programme / Apprenticeship
At Pret, we recognise that after leaving school some young people want to start climbing the career ladder straight away. Our School Leavers Programme (which also happens to be a Level 2 Apprenticeship) is a fantastic opportunity for enthusiastic and hard-working school leavers who want to get ahead.
The year-long programme provides you with a full-time, permanent role, working in a Pret shop 35 hours per week. As well as great ‘Pret Perks’ and pay, we’ll also provide training with our specialist School Leaver courses at the Pret Academy in Central London and in locations around the country.
Throughout the year (and beyond) we will support you and your career development. It’s up to you how quickly, and in which area of Pret, you progress. This is your chance to grow in confidence and experience, and shape a fantastic career for yourself (both within Pret and out in the working world).
If you have a passion for food and people, and you’re not afraid of hard work or early mornings, then Pret could be a great place to join. We’d love to hear from you.
