They’ve recruited staff, they aroused a city’s taste buds and now Nando’s hopes to get the signs ‘signed off’ for their store on the Ely Leisure Park complex.

The company has submitted designs of for signage at the new store to East Cambridgeshire Council and hope for a decision within weeks.

It could then be full speed ahead for the fast food chain that began recruiting the staff they need for the new unit last autumn.

Nando’s will create stiff competition for other outlets on the leisure park hat include Frankie and Benny’s, a Greene King pub, Arbuckles, KFC, Costa, Pizza Hut and McDonald’s.

They’ve been offering potential staff some good incentives to join them including the potential of a £4,000 a year bonus, heavily discounted food for staff members and their friends, an annual family fun day – and the chance of being invited to a conference at a luxury resort.

“At Nando’s we like to create an environment that allows people to shine, enabling you to deliver amazing moments and feelings for every customer and team member,” says their recruitment advertising.
