Work at Nando’s

We’re always looking for people with fire in their bellies and passion in their souls. If you’re that kind of person, then we’d love you to join our Nando’s family!

Whether it’s on the restaurant floor, perfecting the art of grilling or running the whole Nando’s restaurant, the opportunities are every bit as tasty as our famous PERi-PERi.

Starting out

We would never throw you in at the deep end and expect you to grill 100 chickens in your first hour. (There’s way more to it than that!) Instead you’ll start as a Trainee Nandoca and get used to restaurant life before we hand you a specific role. But don’t expect to stay there forever. Trying different roles and learning new skills is all part of Nando’s life. You’ll receive all the support, development, mentoring and encouragement you need to succeed.

Pride, Passion, Courage, Integrity, Family

These are the values we live by at Nando’s – and when you aspire to them, you can’t go far wrong! Above everything, we have fun and our work hard, play hard attitude keeps Nandocas fired up for action!
