Sir Ian Botham is on the lookout for apprentices in Milton Keynes to be trained by him and eventually become the Boss of Beef.

The winner will be given the chance to learn top tips from the cricket legend himself and Beefeater’s skilled chefs at the Whitbread Skills Academy, and enjoy a lifetime supply of free steak at their local Beefeater.

Sir Ian said: “This summer, I’ve had the chance to combine my passion for food and cricket in my role as Beefeater’s Boss of Beef.

“I’ll be in Oz this winter so I’m on the lookout for a worthy candidate from Milton Keynes who can step into my chef whites and become Beefeater’s new Boss of Beef.

“I will be giving all candidates a grilling before I make my choice. Think you’ve got what it takes?”

Anybody interested has until October 5 to enter the competition through Beefeater’s Boss of Beef website.

Five candidates will be shortlisted and interviewed by Sir Ian with the winner becoming his apprentice and Beefeater’s official steak taster.

The winning apprentice will receive the same training session as Sir Ian and learning how to grill the perfect steak as well as the prize of a lifetime supply of steak at their local restaurant as part of their new role.

Sarah Tinsley, brand manager for Beefeater, added: “With Sir Ian’s help we have been able to put steak back into the heart of the nation this summer.

“After an incredible summer we are really excited to see who has what it takes to take on such an incredible role, and to really do justice to the role of Boss of Beef and all the responsibility that comes with the title.”
