Training the Nando’s way

Full of fun and excitement, development for us isn’t just an afterthought or lip service. It’s at the heart of everything we do.

We invest a great deal in helping you to be yourself at your best. Whether that’s helping you to fulfil your full potential in your current role or help you aim even higher, we’ll work with you to make sure it happens. When you’re enjoying your experience with us, our customers find themselves smiling too.

It doesn’t matter where you join us, in the first month we’ll show you the basics and continue from there. Everyone has their own preferred way of learning, so our training programmes are tailored to individual needs, putting you in control of your own journey. Whether it’s learning new skills, learning about yourself, learning from others, we’ll provide the map and guidance. You choose the route and destination. And, as with everything else at Nando’s, you can be assured that we make it fun.


Induction training

Focused on helping you to understand the way we do things around here, get to grips with the basics and set you up for success.


The best learning takes place on the job, not solely in a classroom. We have a variety of ways in place to support you, including cross training, NVQ’s and our much-admired Buddy and Host schemes.


You can expect regular feedback from everyone around you as well as reviews about not only what you are doing but how you are doing it.

Career paths

Clear career pathways for all operational roles, from Buddy to Regional Managing Director. We’re proud of our talent and have a strong focus on internal progression so you can be certain that if you have what it takes to advance in our business, we’ll be talking to you about it and doing everything we can to help you along the way.

Masterclasses and workshops

Giving you the knowledge, skills and behaviours to be at your best and shine like a star.
