“Fed up of split shifts and evening work in the catering industry I joined Cranstons as a mature apprentice. It’s been a great move for me and for my young family, I’m now a fully trained butcher and manage Cranstons Orton Grange Food Hall. It’s a really supportive friendly company with plenty of opportunities for progression.”
