About us

We’re Abri, a housing association based in the south of England. One of the largest in fact. We've got 35,000 homes and 1,500 colleagues. And if all our 80,000 residents lived in the same place, we’d have a town roughly the size of Guildford.

We’re a passionate bunch. We think we can make a real difference. Homelessness, poverty, inequality, a lack of affordable housing. They’re all linked. They’re issues that affect so many, young and old alike. And we don’t think that’s right. We want to give people the chance to dream big and be who they want to be. Homes are at the heart of everybody’s lives. And we exist to help make good homes, and good lives a reality for everyone.

About you

We’ve all got different backgrounds, strengths and experiences. But we share the same values. It’s these shared values that bring us together as one team.

Our colleagues embrace these every day. Be the difference to our customers and colleagues, always curious and look for better solutions, achieve together by working in partnership with others, own it openly through working with others in an open and honest way, and finally embrace possibility and see changes and challenges as welcomed opportunities.

If you share our values and want to make a real difference in the world, you’re on to a winner and we’d love to hear from you! 

Your new role

The Abri community team at Café 1759 in Bordon have an exciting  opportunity where you'll be able to achieve a Level 2 apprenticeship qualification as a Commis Chef.

Previous experience and knowledge are not required but enthusiasm, a desire to learn and the ability to work well with others is. The friendly Café 1759 team want you to be successful and will support and encourage you throughout your apprenticeship, and in return they'll want you to support them too.  They won't mind you making mistakes, in fact they'll expect it but they'll expect you to learn from them. 

The successful candidate will be given comprehensive training to undertake their role working mainly in the kitchen but occasional front of house as well.

The hours are 37 hours per week worked over 5 days Monday to Saturday. One of the 5 days is spent at Basingstoke College of Technology, the successful candidate will be required to make their own travel arrangements.  The apprenticeship will last for 15 months.

We want our colleagues at all levels to be bold, inspiring and not afraid to speak up and be their authentic selves.

We’ll work with you to help you reach your goals through personal development plans and our in-house People Development team.

Depending on your role you may need to work a set shift pattern, or you may have greater flexibility to choose when and where you work. Either way, we strive to ensure all colleagues have a degree of flexibility to attend life’s important events.
