The awards celebrate the highest calibre of rising talent across a variety of sectors. This year, Laura Wileman, who has undertaken a commis chef apprenticeship at the Michelin-starred Simon Radley at The Chester Grosvenor, has been announced as one of the three contenders for Intermediate Apprentice of the Year by Total People.
General manager of The Chester Grosvenor, Richard Grove, said: "Having started her apprenticeship at the Simon Radley Kitchen Academy just over a year ago, Laura has shown a great deal of talent, drive and determination in a short period of time. Thanks to a comprehensive and hands-on training programme delivered by experts in the field, Laura has ascended a steep learning curve to deliver 2-4 AA Rosette/Michelin star standards. We are delighted that her hard work has been recognised and wish her the very best of luck in the finals."
