In 2014 we decided to start The James St South Apprenticeship Programme, employing and training up to 8 young people between the ages of 16 and 24.

We are working with the Belfast Met in training and educating our apprenticeships to NVQ level 2 in Professional Cookery. They are employed by the restaurant and will get the best of training from our dedicated team of chefs at the restaurant and Niall McKenna at the Cookery School.

This year we are going to employ 16 budding new recruits. Applications must be submitted by the 11th October 2016.
