Project Coordinator


Monday, February 26, 2018 - 22:37

We are on a mission to make a difference. A big difference. Not only do we serve fresh, delicious Mexican food, we are doing our bit to end world hunger through our Plate 4 Plate initiative, seen in our video below. By 2025, our goal is to donate one billion meals. That's right, one BILLION meals. And in order to achieve this, we need to continue our growth. That's where our Project Coordinator comes in.

Founded in 2005 by philanthropist and entrepreneur Dr Sam Prince, Zambrero is Australia's largest Mexican chain with over 170 restaurants here and overseas. We move at lightning speed and will continue to do so opening 40+ restaurants this year in Australia alone.

About our new Project Coordinator – You?

Above all, we are looking for someone who gets stuff done. We can't stress enough; this is a fast paced role and you need to move quickly to be able to keep up.

Be client and customer focused – Franchise partners are our clients and everything we do is done with them and our customers in mind.

Be a people person and be able to engage with a wide range of stakeholders

We are looking for someone with 1-3 years' experience in a similar role. Franchise experience would be great however not essential.

What can this role offer you? You will work with a tight-knit, experienced team of professionals (inside and outside of building and design) and as we continue to grow, there will be plenty of development opportunities if you want them.

We are not a traditional business, so we don't want traditional people.

If this sounds like the role for you, hurry up and apply because we can't wait to meet you! Until then, we will keep your seat in our Surry Hills office warm for you!
