McDonald's to create 2,500 UK jobs

Restaurant giant McDonald’s is to create at least 2,500 new jobs in Britain this year, taking its UK workforce to 93,500, the firm announced today.

The move follows 3,500 new jobs that McDonald’s created last year, of which 70% were taken by young people under the age of 21.

McDonald’s has added more than 20,000 people to its workforce during the last five years.

The company said its growth has been driven by investment in its restaurants and technology and extended opening hours and menu choice.
