McDonalds To Create 2,500 New UK Jobs In 2013

28 Jan 2013


Immigration News

Fast-food chain McDonald's is set to create another 2,500 jobs in 2013, as it grows its workforce to 93,500 by the end of 2013.

The new appointments will come on top of the 3,500 jobs McDonald's created last year. Around 70% of those were taken by people under the age of 21.

Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, Vince Cable, who will visit a McDonald’s restaurant this afternoon to meet employees, welcomed the news.

Cable said: “A highly-skilled workforce is an important part of any growing business. That’s why I am pleased to see how McDonald’s is providing training and apprenticeships in a range of skills.

“McDonald’s is also to be applauded for helping adult employees get qualifications in maths and English. Poor literacy and numeracy skills can hold people back in the workplace, which is why the Government has doubled the funding for these core subjects.”

Jill McDonald, chief executive of McDonald’s UK, said: “These remain challenging economic conditions but I’m pleased that, together with our franchisees, 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.

“Whilst today’s job market is hugely competitive, we offer many people their first experience of work and we’re focused on doing what we can to help more young people get into quality jobs and careers.  To help young people get on in life, it’s crucial for major employers like us to keep investing in training and people development, because companies like ours can make a big difference through the jobs we create and the support we provide.”
