Rewards & Recognition

Since the very beginning we’ve wanted Nando’s to be a different kind of place to work, not just eat. Naturally, the rewards you’ll get will depend on your role and where you join us, but we’ll clear that up with you before you join.

Rewards 1

Some of our benefits include:

Free meals for everyone who works in our restaurants when they’re on shift, and a discount of up to 40% when they’re not. (Depending on the day of the week.)


Cycle to work scheme and a great discounts platform available to everyone to help your money go further.


We offer a paid 4-week sabbatical for every five years of continual service. It gives our people the chance to do something a bit different and a bit new. We’ve got a couple of people who have experienced three or four sabbaticals now!


Patrãos and Assistant Managers have a 5-day working week and can have one weekend off per month. Also, a clothing allowance to look extra sharp.


Sharing in our success is a big thing to us. Patrãos and MD’s can earn their salary again in bonuses over the year. Or in Macho Peas if they prefer. And there’s private healthcare too.


Last, but definitely not least, there’s our fun extravaganzas. We make sure each year is filled with fun, whether it’s team trips, annual conferences, family fun days, networking events or Christmas parties.
