Take a page out of our founder Antonio Cerqueira’s book. He didn’t speak a word of English, all he had was a plan, a sense of adventure and an amazing gift for cooking delicious chicken. If there’s one piece of advice I’d give to anyone thinking of starting a career at Oporto it would be just that. Be fearless, set yourself a personal plan and work towards it. Make the most of the training and education we offer, and you’ll soon hit those goals.

Thanks for loving Oporto as much as we do. We hope to welcome you to the ‘familia’ soon.
