Management careers with Nandos

Passionate about what you do? Living life to the full? We`ve always believed that success should be recognised! A management career with Nando’s is one of the most rewarding challenges you will ever undertake. The benefits go far beyond financial reward, as you see yourself and those around you grow, both professionally and personally.

The Patrão

The main management job we recruit for is the Patrão – the name we give the general manager of our restaurants. Patrão means head of the family in Portuguese. Although you’ll be like the father or mother of your Nandoca team, you’ll quickly realise that we don't do hierarchy at Nando's. Everyone works together and parties together. So you’ll need to be a ‘roll-up-your-sleeves and get-stuck-in’ sort of person to make the most of everything we have to offer. As a Patrão, you will be responsible for creating the life and soul of your restaurant, and making all the big decisions to keep it profitable. You will control the finances, inspire marketing to creative heights, and hire your team of Nandocas.

- You will have general management experience from a hospitality or retail background
- You will come with passion and energy which will naturally help you support, develop, motivate and inspire your new family at Nando`s
