Craft Guild of Chefs launches mentor scheme

The Craft Guild of Chefs has launched a new mentor scheme to help up-and-coming chefs who are looking to develop their careers.

The trade body said it believes its role includes assisting the career development of its members and creating networking opportunities.

Among the chefs taking part in the scheme as mentors are Andrew Bennett, Matt Owens and Chris Galvin.

Andrew Bennett, chair of Craft Guild of Chefs, said: “Members of the Craft Guild of Chefs benefit from years of experience and I know our mentors will take a lot of pleasure in giving back and using their expertise to boost the careers of fellow chefs.

“Whether the mentee is a commis chef looking to take the next step on the ladder, or a Sous Chef looking for advice on advancing to the role of Head Chef, our mentor scheme should offer a valuable boost.”

Galvin, chef patron of Galvin Restaurants, said: “I’m delighted that the Craft Guild of Chefs has decided to launch a mentorship scheme to support chefs across the industry. 

“There’s never been a more important time for chefs to come together, than there is right now.”
