There are many initiatives designed to help young people stay out of trouble and make something of their lives. As an active member of our community in Victoria, Roast Meat & Sandwich Shop offers something very special…

Our apprentice program combines on-the-job-based learning, a paid tuition to culinary school, sourcing trips and personal development. Each year we task a new team member under our wing and nurture their passion for food, with the end goal of turning them into a professional chef.

It’s an intensive program that requires hard work and dedication to the end goal, but it’s a transformational journey. We accept fresh young blood each year; applicants can apply as a working employee of Roast or as a new applicant.

Each apprentice, while in the Roast kitchen, is trained across a number of sections of the kitchen including:

  • butchery
  • roasting
  • colds/salads
  • customer service
  • ordering & menu development
  • food safety planning
