The golden arches could be calling for some university leavers, with fast food giant McDonalds looking to hire 150 graduates in 2009 as trainee business managers.
According to the Times, programme entrants initially participate in an 18-week management development programme, which covers operations, finance, marketing, leadership and human resources.
From here, they join a restaurant management team before becoming a business manager within two to three years.
Trainees start on a salary of £21,500, plus an allowance of £3,000 for those working in inner London or £1,500 for the south-east region.
One of the major attractions of this particular graduate scheme may be the wage on promotion, which is currently a healthy £45,000 per annum.
Applications for graduate management roles usually receive around 25 applications for every place, the Times reports.
Last month, Angel HR management consultant Wendy Dining told Recruiter magazine that recruitment levels were steady in the hospitality sector despite the economic downturn.
