Everyone is

Changing lives together


Inspired by our Southern African heritage we know and value the richness that diversity brings, not just in running a successful business, but in creating a better world for us all to live in. We believe in inclusivity and opportunity for all - at Nando’s you will find people from every country, every race, and every religion working together and eating together.

We believe that there is no such thing as a ‘typical Nandoca’ (our word for employee), but what connects us all is the commitment to being open-minded, embracing and accepting of every individual. We are proud to welcome everyone who shares these values and attitudes. At the same time, we aim to create a place where our people feel they can be themselves, belong, grow and in turn deliver a great experience to our customers.

How we do it…

At Nando’s, we’re all about changing lives, together. That starts with our Nandocas. We deliberately work to create a safe environment where their voices are heard, they can really thrive and grow.

With people at our core, we actively address any barriers our current and future Nandocas face inside and outside Nando’s. We take responsibility and accountability of the role we play and need to continue to play in creating a fairer and equal society, for everyone. And by doing so, we inspire and encourage others to do the same.

Creating a sense of Inclusion and Belonging is essential for our people, our customers and our brand.
