McDonald's is the world's largest chain of fast food restaurants. The popular chain is well-known for its Big Macs, Quarter Pounders, and Chicken McNuggets. Most of its outlets are free-standing units, but McDonald's also has many quick-service kiosk units located in airports and retail areas. Each unit gets its food and packaging from approved suppliers and uses standardized procedures to ensure that a Big Mac purchased in Pittsburgh tastes the same as one bought in Beijing. McDonalds offers an intensive 18-week Management Development Programme (MDP) for graduates to work as a Trainee Business Manager. You will be given a thorough grounding in the business and all the commercial skills you need to thrive and develop into an effective Second Assistant Manager. McDonalds gives you exceptional support, real progression opportunities, a range of excellent rewards and all the potential associated with working for a world-famous global brand.
