The Trainee Manager Programme is the first step to managing one of our franchised UK restaurants. Many of our franchises have £million plus turnover and employ a team of 60 or more people. From day one, you’ll be based on the shop floor learning how each area of the business works. One minute you’ll be serving customers, the next you’ll be learning about stock control. You’ll work alongside our crew, crew trainers, customer care teams and assistant managers whilst you complete an intensive initial training period. It takes up to six months to complete the initial stages of the Trainee Manager programme, and after successfully completing the training period and relevant courses, you’ll be promoted to a 2nd Assistant Manager and become part of the core restaurant management team. The next steps could involve promotion to 1st Assistant, Business Manager and beyond.
Open to Graduates or those with experience of working in a customer facing environment or managing teams – you’ll want to provide a great experience for each of our customers and be passionate about training and developing your teams. You’ll need to be comfortable rolling up your sleeves and getting involved with each area of the restaurant and be a really quick learner, as there’s a lot to learn up in a short space of time. A logical mind and great people skills are really important too.
We'll give you the training, knowledge, skills and confidence. Apply determination, hard work and ambition, and you’ll complete the training period and be ready for promotion to 2nd Assistant Manager. You’ll be required to learn a lot and apply what you have learnt, and to always lead by example. It’s a challenging and diverse role, so being self-motivated and open to change really helps. As this role is working for one of the most successful global brands, you’ll also be required to adhere to all our policies and procedures and to focus on providing a great customer experience at all times. In return, you’ll embark on a career with a company ranked 6th in the 2013 Sunday Times Best Big Companies list, where you will develop and acquire transferable skills in a dynamic business environment, as well as meet some great people along the way.
