Accountants apply for McDonalds jobs

New Irish branch gets 500 applicants from accountants, bankers and architects

Accountants, bankers and architects feature prominently among the applicants for a new McDonalds branch in Ireland, the Independent reported.

Professionals are chasing 'McJobs' in Ennis, County Clare, where unemployment has jumped by 73% over the past year.

Franchisee Kieran McDermott said he had to do a double-take on some of the CVs he received. He was swamped with 500 applications in just 10 days, forcing him to take down the 'now hiring' banner.

The situation could be repeated across Europe. McDonalds is one of the few employers still hiring, with plans to open a further 240 outlets in Europe.
