McDonald’s UK Announces 5,000 New Jobs

McDonald’s UK is to create over 5,000 jobs by the end of 2017.  These new jobs build on the 8,000 announced in 2014 which has taken the workforce to over 110,000 ahead of schedule.

“As a major UK employer, we have added more than 15,000 people to our workforce during the last five years as a result of our sustained business growth and long-term investment in recruitment and training,” points out Paul Pomroy, chief executive of McDonald’s UK. “Growth has been driven by investment and innovation in the restaurant experience, new restaurants and extended opening hours – over half of our stores are now open 24/7 throughout the week.”

McDonalds UK recently completed its 500th restaurant transformation and is on track to convert a further 250 stores by the end of this year. Innovations like table service where customers place their order via McDonalds’ new digital kiosks and have their food brought to them, are proving incredibly popular and in place in over 350 restaurants across the UK.

“This focus on continued investment and innovation has seen another strong quarter performance for the UK business. We have now delivered 41 consecutive quarters of sales growth in the UK, by delivering what matter most to our customers – freshly prepared, great tasting food at affordable prices,” says Paul Pomroy. “These remain challenging economic conditions but I’m pleased that, together with our franchisees, we remain committed to the UK, and our continued focus on serving quality, affordable food and giving our customers a great experience is enabling us to keep investing in our business and creating jobs.”
