We employ over 16,500 people in our 380 plus restaurants across all corners of the country. That equates to total annual wages of $250 million – a substantial contribution to the economies in neighbourhoods small and large, metropolitan and regional.
A lot goes on behind the scenes before we open the doors of a new restaurant. A team of between 35 and 50 people are highly trained to serve the community. In both regional and metropolitan areas, the total annual wages per restaurant is in the vicinity of $600,000 – providing a substantial benefit to local community economies.
The majority of our people work in a part time capacity (more than 90 per cent), with just a small percentage full time (five per cent) and casual (two per cent). Our part time workforce enjoys job security combined with the flexibility to balance work and other commitments such as family and study.
We're also pleased to be selected by many Australians as their first employer. We take great pride in knowing that Hungry Jack's restaurants Australia-wide offer a training ground for young people to learn essential work and life skills.
More than one million Australians have walked through the doors of a Hungry Jack's restaurant to begin their working life. It's a responsibility of which we're very proud and one we take seriously.
A large percentage of our workforce is under the age of 18 years.
As an equal opportunity employer, some of our restaurants employ crew members with learning and physical disabilities. We work with local employment placement services to integrate these highly valued employees into our workforce.
Our predominantly young team is supported by a dynamic culture. We're guided by six pillars: guest-led; meritocratic; empowered; accountable; teamwork; and fun. It guides our thinking and decision-making and ensures we remain firmly focused on delivering the best possible experience for our millions of customers.
