5,000 jobs to be created with McDonald's

5,000 jobs with McDonald's

If you're looking for a job, McDonald's has said that they're going to be creating 5,000 new jobs in the UK by the end of 2017.

This is in addition to 8,000 new positions that they spoke about in 2014.

Basically, the jobs are coming from new restaurants that are being opened, and extended opening hours for existing branches (more than half of McDonald's are now open for 24 hours).

We're not offering to be a conduit for these jobs mind you - you'll have to check McDonald's job page for yourself.

MPs are happy about this, obviously.

Business Secretary Greg Clark said that this is all "great news for the UK economy", and pointed out that large companies have confidence "that the UK is open for business".

A sly nod to the Brexit there.

Of course, McDonald's are taking something of a gamble here, because recently, they've seen sales falling, and they're having their market share eaten away by rivals and independent burger joints.

Either way, if you're looking for work, and are wanting to work for someone that has a respected management program, this is a decent news.

And if you get a job, fulfil Bitterwallet's long need for a Big Mac that is made with the sausage patties from their breakfast menu. We need the grease.
