News: RCAT student cut out for apprenticeship


19 year old Mark Hammill from Rotherham has given computing the chop and is flourishing at The Underwood Meat Group's Northern Catering Business whilst completing an apprenticeship in butchery.

Underwood Meat Company operates from sites in Rotherham, Chesterfield, and Godalming in Surrey, and employs 150 people. From these premises, the company provides a wide variety of raw meat products to a range of blue-chip groups and independent catering customers throughout the UK.

With early starts, butchery can be a tough job, but Mark has stepped up to the challenge and is set to complete his apprenticeship in just over nine months.

Under the expert tuition of butchers at Northern Catering, Mark has learnt to butcher a range of meats including beef, chicken and pork. The Underwood's Group has its own farm in the Peak District National Park, with a commitment to source local produce and has over 35 years' experience.

Mark's been getting a broad variety of experience preparing meats to a range of chef's specifications varying in size, weight and cut. Mark has been working in the independent specific section of the business - Northern Catering Butchers.

In a world increasingly dominated by technology the ancient trade of butchery is in steady demand and Mark has found it offers a route into employment. He said: "I studied computing but there weren't too many jobs around so I started working at Underwood's and I really enjoy butchery."
