What We Can Do For You …..
With no requirements other than passion for the hospitality industry, great chat and a hunger to be successful, we offer a unique opportunity for you to gain unrivalled access to the nerve centre of our business and the industry.
We are dedicated to making THE PIGs an inspiring, exciting and fun place to work.
We’re growing fast and we want to give our teams a great place to work that is fun, professional and just little bit different!
We offer Our Chef Apprenticeship Programme
Our Award-Winning Chef Apprenticeship Programme provides budding chefs of any age with an accredited training pathway which will enable you to develop unique knowledge and skills. Throughout the programme you will have the opportunity to work your way around the various sections in our award-winning PIG kitchens, overseen by Chef Director James Golding and Group Apprentice & Kitchen Coordinator Alexa Bartlett-Woodnutt.
We have a Budding Entrepreneurs Programme
Here at Lime Wood Group and Home Grown Hotels, we not only grow produce for the kitchen – we home grow our people too through the Budding Entrepreneur programme. The Programme aims to develop the Managers of the future who are able to run our hotels – or your own one day.
Budding Entrepreneurs are often spotted as those in the team who have just that bit ‘extra’. Once approved onto the 3 year programme personally by our Chairman Robin Hutson, Budding Entrepreneurs transfer between Lime Wood, THE PIGs, Portetta.
There is no entry requirement to becoming a Budding Entrepreneur, just a natural curiosity, a dedication to hard work and a passion for success in our great industry.
Who & Where are we ……
Hampshire. Somerset. Dorset. Devon. Kent. Cornwall.
THE PIGs are really restaurants with rooms and kitchen gardens. The concept was created in 2011 with THE PIG, Brockenhurst and our litter now consists of five hotels with the latest additions of THE PIG-in the wall, THE PIG-near Bath, THE PIG-on the beach and THE PIG-at Combe. Our latest hotel The PIG at Bridge Place, opened April 2019, and we are expecting more to follow soon. Each hotel has its own personality and sense of self. Each evolved rather than interior designed, with laid-back warm service, and a genuine commitment to environmental and social responsibility.
With an obsessive commitment to home grown and local produce, THE PIGs celebrate the seasons and use only the best, freshest and most authentic foods and ingredients. It is all about our kitchen gardens, they are the beating heart of each operation. From seed to plate is crucial to who we are, and what we can’t grow ourselves, we source from within 25 miles.
Whether you are planning to just join us for the summer or looking to further your hospitality career journey you will be joining a business that cares, whether that’s about its people, guests, food, sustainability or the environment!
If this sounds a bit like you, we want to hear from you!
