You might already know us as the home of PERi-PERi chicken but we’re really a people-first, chicken-second kind of place!

As a Patrao (meaning head of the family and what we call Restaurant Managers), your day-to-day is all about creating unforgettable experiences for our customers and a space for your team to grow and develop. You’ll get all the support and opportunities to do this as well as the freedom to run the restaurant as if it’s your own.

You’ll deliver the Nando’s magic that keeps customers coming back again and again. The sizzle of the grill, the welcoming warmth and the fond farewells.

So don’t wait in the wings, this could be your new flame.

What’s in it for you: 

  • A generous bonus package, up to $10,000 annually.
  • Free Nando’s when you’re working, plus a discount to share with family and friends when you’re off the clock.
  • Work life balance. Flexible rotating rosters published in advance with set weekends off. Get your beauty sleep with no overnights.
  • A six-week onboarding training program to set you up for success with one of our training champions. Your personal mentor will teach you all about the Nando’s culture and how to run our restaurants brilliantly.
  • Engagement events for national management teams to grow, connect and have fun. Get ready to mingle.
  • A Fun Budget to reward your crew with nights out and team building. Refilled every six months!
  • Join a purpose-led business focused on changing lives backed by a global brand with a cult following. What a flex!
  • Free access to nutrition advice, exercise support, financial and psychological counselling.
  • Referral bonus for every successful manager you send our way!
  • Paid parental leave for primary (six weeks) and secondary carers (one week).

We’re looking for:

  • An experienced leader or someone with previous management experience in fast casual dining or similar is preferred, but not essential.
  • A bucket-load of passion to inspire, motivate, and engage your team.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • A people-focused human, who loves to coach, mentor, and develop team members from all walks of life.
  • A passion for running restaurants brilliantly – serving up high quality food and making every customer feel welcome.
  • A Leader-By-Example who lives Nando’s core values in their day-to-day life.
  • A problem-solver who can think outside the box to find solutions that deliver great results for restaurants, customers and team members.
  • Limitless passion for grilling our legendary PERi-PERi chicken!

As a leader in our restaurants, it is an inherent requirement of the role to work with all ingredients on the Nando’s menu, to obtain and hold appropriate certifications, such as liquor accreditation, First Aid, CPR and manager accreditation, subject to applicable local legislation. Only candidates with the rights to work in Australia & New Zealand will be shortlisted.

Nando’s is an Equal Opportunity Employer who seek to ensure that people are employed, trained, and promoted fairly. And, most of all, we want all our people to feel comfortable to bring their whole selves to work!

We check ourselves against these five values every day: Pride, Passion, Courage, Integrity and, last but not least, Family.

If these values inspire you too, then you’re reading the right job ad! So, what are you waiting for?

Fire it up.
