Our company restaurant The Market is open from 11:30 - 14:00 where we serve lunch to around 300 guests every day. In addition, we provide banqueting upon request.  

Your team

The team at The Base consists of 10 colleagues and a catering manager. Half of them work in the kitchen and the other half serve food. 

Your job

Today, Wednesday, is practice day for you. A quick chat with colleagues and then you are ready to pop into the kitchen of this catering location at an airport. First some preparatory work and checking the kitchen stock. Your mentor, an experienced (chef) cook, then asks if you would like to observe a number of dishes. This way, you learn more about certain techniques and the layout of a plate. Great, you've been given some good tips and tricks and get to work on preparing the best dishes yourself.

At the end of the practical day, you discuss the rest of the week with your mentor. The rest of the week you go back to school for your other subjects, next week you'll be back. You have gained a lot of practical experience today!

Your growth
Our main concern is that you grow and get the best out of yourself. Together, we look at what you want to learn and how we can help you. Besides good supervision at your work placement, you can also take a look at other Vermaat catering locations. With around 400 locations, there are enough possibilities and opportunities for you to stay on after your internship or come back after school.
