McDonald's Restaurants Limited
McDonald’s has operated in the UK since 1974 and the business is growing consistently with its 1,250 restaurants and over 110,000 employees. It is the biggest family restaurant business in the world, serving approximately 3.7 million customers a day in the UK alone.
Training and developing people has been at the heart of the McDonald’s business throughout its 41 years in the UK. Each year the company invests over £40 million in developing its people and providing opportunities for progression. Attracting, retaining and engaging the best people is key to their business.
It has a proven track record of career progression and prospective managers can create a long-term career with one of the world’s most recognised and successful brands.
A graduate job at McDonald’s is focused on restaurant management – it involves overseeing the performance and development of, on average, 80 employees and identifying ways in which to improve customer service, build sales and profitability. Following the training period, which can last up to six months, Trainee Managers are promoted to Assistant Managers and become part of the core restaurant management team. Successful Trainee Managers can, in future, progress to managing all aspects of a £multi million business – opportunities can then arise to progress to area management roles or secondments in support departments. Trainee Managers need to be logical thinkers, have a great attitude and be committed to delivering a great customer experience.
Working for a progressive company has its perks – including a host of benefits such as a quarterly bonus scheme, six weeks holiday allowance, meal allowance, private healthcare and access to discounts at over 800 retailers.
