Join the team!
There’s nothing ordinary about joining the Nando’s family. We’re all about passion and personality. You’ll be part of an awesome workplace culture that encourages you to be your best self, will support and develop you and is FUN and inclusive. You’ll receive sweet perks, free Nando’s eats and get fired up about serving tasty, real food all while helping to change the lives of the people and communities around you, as we work together to do good in our local neighbourhoods and for the planet. Keen to find out more?
We put people first
Nando’s has always said it’s never been just about the chicken, it’s about the people who make the chicken! We’re all about looking after our crew and being a good neighbour, especially during tough times.
We recognise the value of work life balance so you can enjoy coming to work (and living life!), and a supportive culture where you’re celebrated for being yourself. We shout you free Nando’s, get you fired up about serving seriously tasty, real food, and have loads of free and fun events you can get involved in, including our International Master Griller competition, Life & Soul Award trip to Southern Africa, manager conferences, plus a special budget just for having fun with your team.
Do good while you work
When you work with us, you’ll be doing good in the world too. We’re always looking for ways to help change the lives of the people and communities around us, like through our national NanDonation program that donates excess chicken to people in need, and Nando’s Music Exchange program supporting up and coming music artists and creatives. We love helping! During COVID-19 we fed the nation, donating $500,000 to Foodbank to help generate 1 million meals to feed Aussies in need and offered a 50% discount to Healthcare and Emergency Services workers.
We work with small-scale, independent chilli farmers in Southern Africa (our heartland and the birthplace of Nando’s where our signature Nando’s African Birds Eye Chillies are grown!) to empower them to run a successful business. There’s plenty of ways you can get involved.
We’re also setting ambitious sustainability targets to be an active part of the climate change solution, and always eager to support you with causes that you’re passionate about. Does this light you up? Then we want to hear from you!
We stand for Equal Opportunity
We believe everyone is welcome to dine at our table. We’re lucky enough to work with over 4,000 Nandocas (that’s what we call our team), from all different backgrounds, ages and ethnicities, and every day we welcome thousands of Nando’s fans into our restaurants across Australia. So, we’re passionate about creating an environment where everyone feels safe and can be their whole self. We’re proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer and seek to ensure that people are employed, trained and promoted fairly.
A career that will grow with you
We want you to go places, which is why we start you on your Nando’s journey with an immersive introduction to your role and how we’ll continue to support you. You’ll get regular, ongoing training and opportunities for personal and professional development, so you’re set up for success as you grow your career through our leadership program. In fact, in the last year, most of our restaurant managers roles were filled by internal promotion!
