About the employer

Ask people where Nando's comes from and you'll get a different answer every time. Portugal? Mexico? The UK? The Nando's story started in 1987 in Rosettenville, a Portuguese neighbourhood in Johannesburg, South Africa. Fast forward five years and Nando's landed in the UK. Now, with over 460 restaurants (and counting), their PERi-PERi is a bestselling hot sauce and Nando's has become as big a part of culture as drinking tea.
