Mission: To create lasting happiness
Meet our very own Nando’s band, The 1987, who played their third ever gig last night in London. An amazing night had by all with profits from the gig going to Nando’s Fighting Malaria
Today, there are over 350 Nando’s restaurants in the UK, but our story starts long before the first UK restaurants opened here in West London suburb of Ealing. It’s a story of discovery, passion and ambition. It’s an evolving story too, so while we always look back on where we’ve come from with pride, it’s where we’re going next that really gets us excited. Have a read for yourself and see if you agree.
Our main aim is to simply create memorable experiences for everyone who has a bit (or a lot) of Nando’s in their life – our customers, communities, founders and suppliers. In fact, it’s everyone we work with. How do we do it? Good question.
It really comes down to the fact that we genuinely care for one another. We want everyone in our family to be happy and succeed, so we keep an eye out for each other, inspire each other and celebrate with each other.
Our informal approach to work means we don’t take ourselves too seriously, and that everyone can be true to themselves. Who we are at work is who we are at home.
Since the very beginning, our values have been our guiding light. Pride, passion, courage, integrity and most of all family, are the 5 things we live and breathe, every day.
Everyone at Nando’s has their own story relating to one or more of our values…
‘Why Nando’s?’ That’s a good question, but also a question with no definitive answer. In fact, if you asked everyone who worked for us, you’d probably get a different answer every time. For some it may be the fact that we’re the kind of name that’s on everyone’s lips. For others it may be the fact that we’ve won awards for being a great place to work and continually invest in our people. To be on the safe side, we’ll go over a few of the reasons why people join us.
We invest a great deal in helping you to be yourself at your best. Whether that’s helping you to fulfil your full potential in your current role or help you aim even higher, we’ll work with you to make sure it happens. When you’re enjoying your experience with us, our customers find themselves smiling too.
It doesn’t matter where you join us, in the first month we’ll show you the basics and continue from there. Everyone has their own preferred way of learning, so our training programmes are tailored to individual needs, putting you in control of your own journey. Whether it’s learning new skills, learning about yourself, learning from others, we’ll provide the map and guidance. You choose the route and destination. And, as with everything else at Nando’s, you can be assured that we make it fun.
Decisions, decisions. Deciding which role is right for you is probably up there with working out which bite to go for after you’ve just ordered the Wing Roulette. The good thing is, it doesn’t matter who you are or what you’ve done in the past (assuming it was legal), there’s almost certainly a role here with your name on it. Here’s a quick overview. Delve deeper for more.
I have been working at Nando's UK full-time (More than 3 years)
Really look after staff with lots of additional benefits.
Sometimes shifts are a struggle because the labour budget is too tight.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nando's UK (London, England) in December 2017.
I applied online through indeed.co.uk and received a phone call to arrange an interview about a month later. The interview itself was fairly casual and consisted of general questions about availability and a few standard interview questions (why do you want the job etc). I was also told there would be a four hour 'trial shift' to see how well I worked in practice.
