At Nando's we like to create an environment that allows people to shine, enabling them to deliver amazing moments for every customer and team member. To help us achieve this, we recruit the very best General Managers - we call them Patraos, which is Portuguese for the head of the family.
Whilst waiting for the Patrao opportunity most suitable to you to become available, you'll be an important part of the region. You will help where necessary managing in different restaurants, helping develop Team Members, fulfilling the Nando's plan and ultimately growing business performance. You will also have the opportunity to get involved with projects which help fulfil the above too.
