The first McDonald’s opened in Ireland on Grafton Street in May 1977. Since then, the company has grown and is now one of Ireland’s largest employers.
McDonald’s in Ireland employs over 5000 people, across more than 92 restaurants and creates 250 new jobs every year. For the past two years, they have finished in the Top 7 companies in Ireland.
The company offers jobs across Ireland. In addition, McDonald’s offers flexible hours, accredited training, and the chance to progress your career.
Opportunities for staff
All employees take part in structured training across 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 and have the opportunity to work towards an NVQ Level 2 in Multi-Skilled Hospitality or Customer Care.
McDonald’s offer managers in their restaurants the opportunity to complete third-level qualification with the National College of Ireland completing a Certificate in Retail Management and BA in Management Practice.
Launched in 2001, the McDonald’s Scholarship Programme offers employees the opportunity to win financial support towards their formal education or lifelong learning.
