We’ve created a development programme that gives you the structured framework you will need to fulfil your potential at a fast pace. 

Full job description


Colonel Sanders was an Original, opening his first restaurant in 1955 in Corbin Kentucky, going bust at the age of 65 and then starting again – a creative genius and relentless in everything he did. We love and respect that and follow in his footsteps so at KFC we celebrate originality.

For Graduates in 2016, we offer a programme which gives you the opportunity to learn our business from it's heart, in our restaurants learning the fundamentals of chicken and chips, balanced with rotations at our Head Office (or Restaurant Support Centre as we like to call it) in a central support role in one of our functions.

To compliment the "hands on" learning we’ve created a development programme that gives you the structured framework you will need to fulfil your potential at a fast pace.

Our goal is to equip you with versatile management and leadership skills so that, moving forwards, you can make the most of opportunities right across our business and emerge a business leader who can innovate, and influence direction on a global scale. We’re looking for people who are adaptable, resilient, commercially aware, naturally gifted leaders, who can inspire and motivate the people around them.

So if you are an Original like the Colonel, with entrepreneurial spirit, ambition, unrelenting tenacity, warmth and humility and you share our passion for real restaurants, real food and making a real difference, somewhere you can be yourself then this is the opportunity for you.


The starting salary for our Graduates is £24,000


We offer a £3,000 bonus on Day One you can use this to pay off some of that student loan or enjoy a holiday, it’s up to you! You will also receive an additional £1,000 bonus on completion of each of your three training milestones.

Flexible Benefits:

We offer an excellent mix of benefits as you start your career with us, we call it our "Pick and Mix" Benefits because you can build your own bespoke reward package from a wide variety of core and flexible benefits, such as gym membership, car ownership and holiday trading.

Learning and development:

Our Leadership and Development platform is a solid framework to guide and support you throughout this exciting journey. We have put in place a leadership programme that will help you develop the right skills, competencies and behaviours you need to progress in your career.

We accept online applications all year round, and we do have a lot of people apply early on - so if you don't hear from one of the team for a little while after we acknowledge your application, don't panic!

We're looking for people with at least a 2:1 in their degree, who will be ready to start working with us from September 2016. Good luck!
