McDonald’s to hire 20,000 workers, eyes 50 new restaurants in UK & Ireland

It currently employs more than 130,000 crew members in the two countries.

McDonald’s announced plans to recruit 20,000 workers and open 50 new restaurants in the UK and Ireland, amidst the industry’s growing concerns about labour shortages after Brexit and COVID-19.

The fast food giant said the additions were not replacing jobs lost throughout the pandemic but were being driven by an expansion drive, and in anticipation of increased crew capacity as part of changing government guidelines on the coronavirus.

“There is no doubt the pandemic has had a huge impact on many people’s employment opportunities and threatened the future of high streets up and down the country,” Paul Pomroy, the chief executive of McDonald’s UK and Ireland, said

“Our 1,400 restaurants are run by 200 local franchisees, which means we have a personal stake in every one of our communities. It’s a big responsibility, and the moves we’ve announced today reflect our commitment to continue to innovate and invest in the local communities and economies we serve,” he added.

McDonald’s currently employs more than 130,000 crew members in the UK and Ireland.
