About McDonald’s in Ireland
The first McDonald’s in Ireland opened on Grafton Street in May 1977. The company has grown and, as a result, McDonald’s is now one of Ireland’s largest employers.
In Ireland, McDonald’s in Ireland employs over 5000 people. They work across more than 92 restaurants and McDonald’s creates 250 new jobs every year. The company offers jobs across Ireland. In addition, McDonald’s offers flexible hours, accredited training, and the chance to progress your career.
All McDonald’s staff take part in structured training. This includes training in customer service, team work and restaurant operations. They also have the opportunity to achieve an array of qualifications with the company.
City & Guilds Ireland accredits McDonald’s Crew Development Programme (CDP). New employees start working through the CDP from day 1. They also have the opportunity to work towards an NVQ Level 2 in Multi-Skilled Hospitality or Customer Care.
Restaurant managers have the chance to complete a third-level qualification with the National College of Ireland completing a Certificate in Retail Management and BA in Management Practice.
Finally, launched in 2001, the McDonald’s Scholarship Programme offers employees the opportunity to win financial support towards their formal education or lifelong learning.
Join the McDonald’s crew
McDonald’s looks for employees with genuine smiles and the ability to connect with others. Staff should love dealing with different types of people and be ready to work as part of a team. In addition, high levels of energy and efficiency plus attention to detail are needed.
The vast majority – 95 percent – of McDonald’s restaurant managers started out as crew members.
