Aaron Finch started working in a kitchen straight from school aged just 17. He enjoyed the job and decided he wanted to train more formally as a chef.
He made the move to TLH Leisure Resort’s Aztec Bistro in 2017 as a Sous Chef and soon became an integral part of the kitchen team. Whilst in this role he undertook his Level 3 Senior Production Chef Apprenticeship, supervised and assisted by the Swatpro Academy.
Aaron found the apprenticeship to be invaluable and he was quickly able to use his enhanced skills when promoted to Acting Head Chef in the Aztec Bistro.
After completing his apprenticeship, Aaron has now been promoted to Head Chef for the Aztec Bistro at only 24 years. He is relishing the additional responsibility and the chance to make an impact on the menus and the customer experience. He is keen to undergo more training and eventually would like to own his own restaurant.
Aaron has proved that if you have the passion and enjoy the job then an apprenticeship within hospitality can be a rewarding route to furthering your career.
