The Trainee Business Manager is the first step on the journey to leading and inspiring teams, within one of our £multi-million restaurants. From the minute you join us, our values will guide how you lead our people on the shop floor and shape the experiences you provide our customers.
This accelerated training programme is the first step on the journey to leading and inspiring teams, within one of our restaurants. When you move through the initial training stage, you will be promoted to a 2nd Assistant Manager, and become an even bigger part of the core restaurant management support system. From there, your journey could take you to 1st Assistant, Business Manager and beyond!
Over the course of nine months you’ll learn how our values shape our business from the ground up. The hands on experience you will gain from working in our kitchens, service areas, customer areas and our drive-thru will give you the confidence to make your impact across each of our day parts.
We want our customers and our people to feel valued and appreciated at all times, and you will help us achieve that as you gain momentum, and take responsibility, of shifts and our key systems and processes. Your passion for doing the right thing for our people and our customers will have you fired up by the idea of running your own successful business!
