Fast Foods McDonald's to create 2,500 jobs in the UK
24 January 2012
The fast food restaurant will create thousands of jobs in the UK with the majority will go to young people.
McDonald’s has announced that it will create 2,500 jobs in 2012, and will see 30% of these go to 1st time workers, while more than half will go to people under the age 25.
Over the last 3 years McDonalds has created 13,500 and its total UK workforce will now reach 90,000.
Deputy PM Nick Clegg says, "McDonald's has an excellent reputation for developing its staff with training and apprenticeship programs. This invests valuable time and resources to help young people, with little or no experience in the world of work, to develop their skills and confidence.
“In the end, that gives young people a terrific opportunity to move up within the company, or use their experience and training to move into other jobs. It’s a telling fact that half of McDonald’s current board have progressed from the shop floor to the top floor, having started their careers serving customers in the restaurant.”
Jill McDonald, CEO of McDonald’s UK, says: “Today’s job market is particularly tough for young people so it remains vital that these jobs continue to offer great training programs that teach the valued, transferable skills that will give them a solid footing on the career ladder and help them to progress their careers with us or other employers.”
Borer's FUSION Flexitime System can cut overheads and reduce management time
With a high number of employees on payroll, using Borer's FUSION Time Recording System will help reduce management involvement and the administrative effort required to manage a time management scheme.
It is very labour intensive to manage and maintain a centrally administered or paper based flexitime system. Invariably, queries arise in relation to flexi balances and the process can become a very complicated one, particularly for the HR department. Implementing an automated time and attendance system makes things very easy for both employees and their managers alike.
