Many of our teams join KFC at the start of their working lives – we have been the ‘first job’ of thousands of young people. We take that responsibility seriously, and we passionately believe in the value of jobs in hospitality. Restaurants are the perfect training ground for personal growth and social mobility, by teaching teamwork, and building self-esteem and confidence.
There’s a clear pathway to the top too, with many team members reaching Restaurant Manager in just a few years. There aren’t many businesses where you can progress to running a large restaurant and managing a team of 40 in your early twenties. But our commitment to training has helped that happen for so many within KFC. We’re passionate about providing the right training and development opportunities – so whether you’re with us part-time or full time, every day can be a school day.
Although you may not see KFC on University Challenge any time soon, since 2013, we've partnered with De Montfort and Glasgow Caledonian Universities to offer recognised degrees in Business Management to all of our KFC team members
