Nando's UK & IRE Company Updates |

Company Updates

  • “Nando’s for me is genuinely like my family. I know no matter how the shift ends that we’ve got each other’s back. I love the responsibility and helping my team out, and they do this for me. We’re definitely being part of more and knowing how much we do for our communities and how we came to be to where we are today makes me proud” – Ellie, a Buddy Trainer at our Guildford restaurant

  • Another great day at this year’s Central Support launch party for Nando’s Fighting Malaria. We joined the fight against malaria two years ago with a national fundraising campaign to donate to spray programmes in Southern Mozambique, and in that time we’ve protected over 300,000 lives…here’s to many more

  • “To come together with Managers from across the region to give and receive ideas and tips of what people are doing regarding thing like team morale, charity work and waste reduction was amazing. Then we can bring fresh ideas to implement them in a way that suits us as a restaurant and a team” – Tanya, a Manager at our Dublin St Andrews Street restaurant speaking about our Listening Forum, where all Managers and team members get the chance to have their voice heard on how we can improve their working environment, and share ideas about how to improve our business

  • “I joined Nando's as an Assistant Manager, having worked for another restaurant company and feeling very lost in terms of what I wanted to do with my life. I never thought that I would still be with Nando's 7 years later - I've opened 3 new restaurants, travelled the world, and had so much fun doing so. I still love what I do, and every day is different! The best bit is, I've made friends for life and I'm so proud to work for such an amazing company” – Adam, the Patrao (General Manager) of our Swindon Orbital restaurant

  • “We donated some money to our local football team, as we wanted to give back to our local community and we found out that the team has no funding. Speaking with one of the managers, he told me that with our donation they were able to buy the players new kits, polo shirts, tracksuits and jackets, which meant the world to them. They were so overwhelmed with the donation they received, it made them extremely happy and they couldn't thank us enough” – Ashley, a Manager from our Rushmere Centre restaurant (with Bart peeking in the back)

  • “I joined Nando’s just over 5 years ago. My first restaurant was in Livingstone, and I then opened Edinburgh Fort Kinnaird, before more recently opening the Glasgow Waterloo Street restaurant. I’m the dad of the restaurant (not the grandad!). From day one, I’ve felt accepted and loved by everyone that I’ve come into contact with. Despite working in hospitality since I was 16, I’ve finally found my home” – Andy, the Patrao (General Manager) of our Glasgow Waterloo Street restaurant

  • "I can't believe my Nando's journey is reaching almost 10 years! It has been a journey with many personal and professional developments and I still love working here. The culture and values encourage you to try new things and once I became a Patrao, there were always new and exciting opportunities offered to me such as helping to develop other Managers, opening new restaurants and becoming a partner in the business. Nando's try very hard not only to make chicken fun but also to develop each person to achieve their full potential, and rewarding hard work” – Eddie, the Patrao (General Manager) of our new Northend Road restaurant

  • “I started in Nando's ten years ago as an Assistant Manager, and I've been a Patrao for five years now! Nando's really put people in the centre of the business - every restaurant you work at or visit, you get the sense of family. From Central Support to restaurants we always care about each other, as we are all part of the family. There's no place in the company that you have to be other than yourself and that is something you can't say about any other place you work” – Daniel, the Patrao of our Eastbourne restaurant

  • Whether it’s driving down Route 66, hiking Machu Picchu or going to one of those interesting shows in Bangkok, anything is possible as everyone who works for Nando’s gets a four-week paid sabbatical every five years to see the world (or stay at home if they prefer). Our Ella is off to explore Aus and Bali, lucky gal hey…

  • “Our South Wales Region got involved with Street Games in the summer, which is a charity that helps under privileged children become fit and fed over the holidays. We wanted to be a part of helping these children have a day to remember, as well as going home with full bellies and lots of stories to share. Seeing the excitement on their faces that they were getting Nando's burgers was overwhelming! Everyone who took part on the day absolutely loved it and we can’t wait to be involved again this year” – Emily, the Patrao (General Manager) of our Newport Friars Walk restaurant.

    StreetGames harnesses the power of sport to create positive change in the lives of disadvantaged young people right across the UK.
