MORE ABOUT THE ROLE
This a great opportunity for someone who is passionate and enthusiastic about making a difference, who will help shape the future of the risk and compliance strategy for the business, in a brand that is firmly part of UK Culture.
We are looking for Risk Manager who is interested in working for a business that does the right thing when it comes to safety, who will continue to build on this reputation and who can influence across all levels.
Critically this person will have the ability to turn their high technical knowledge and ability into practical thinking that will continue to help keep our restaurant teams and guests safe. The role will require some field-based work (but we’ll provide you with a company car to get around) and you’ll be part of the Restaurant Excellence team, which is focused on making our restaurants easier to run. The right person will help support and influence across projects and workstreams continuing to ensure risk is at the forefront of everyone’s thinking.
Oh and there’s one more important thing to say about KFC.. this is a fun place to work. Our culture is quite unique. We are not looking for a dry corporate ‘suit’. Yes, you’ll need to be super smart and totally plugged in to what’s current in the world of risk and be interested and engaged… And this is a business full of bright people who like to get stuff done. But we also love a chicken pun and don’t take ourselves too seriously.
