Purdys Chocolatier recognizes the value of skills and knowledge gained outside of formal education and paid employment.  Applicants who present an equivalent combination of qualifications and experience will be considered and are encouraged to apply. We thank all applicants for their interest in Purdys Chocolatier, but due to the volume of applications received, we are only able to contact those applicants who have been selected for an interview.  No phone calls please.
