You don’t have to impress anyone’s dad to join us as a Nandoca, just your future team. Brimming with passion and personality, a Nandoca (the name we give to a member of our family) puts everything they have into everything they do, helping create those unforgettable customer experiences.

Find a Nando's

While it may be entertaining to watch you try to grill 100 chickens in your first hour, that’s not how we do things. Instead, you’ll start as a Trainee Nandoca and we’ll teach you pretty much everything you need to know about restaurant life. Then it’s about taking on a specific role. There are plenty of them. Don’t expect to stay in the same role forever, as we’re all about learning new skills and developing. Where you go next is up to you.

To join us as a Nandoca, simply pop into the Nando’s you hope to call home from home, and speak to the Patrão about any current or upcoming vacancies.
