NEW MACCA'S: Serving up Mcjobs for the Fraser Coast

McDONALD'S new Urangan store will create 80 new jobs in the Fraser Coast when it opens on December 18.

Construction on the site is almost complete with most of the machines and playground already installed.

There are opportunities for full-time and casual staff with flexibility to work nights and weekends.

The pair behind the new restaurant, Craig and Mel Manley, will run seven McDonald's stores when the Urangan one is completed.

They are currently hiring the new staff and jobs available range from McCafe baristas to managers.

"About 10 full time and 70 casual positions (will be available)," Mr Manley said.

"It's a fair-sized business going down there."

The new business will mark the second McDonald's restaurant to open in Hervey Bay, and Mr Manly said they need job applications.

"(We need) people who are flexible, available in the afternoons and evenings and on weekends obviously - hard working, reliable and happy to work as part of a team," he said.

Hervey Bay Chamber of Commerce president Tim Powers welcomed the injection in the region's jobs.

"Certainly the number of jobs is fantastic."

The Urangan McDonald's store is expected to open on December 18.

Mr Manley said fine weather had ensured construction had run smoothly with only one minor problem.

"Our only delay was the theft of some copper cabling about six weeks ago," he said.

McDelivery will not be on offer from the Urangan site initially, but the option will be explored at a later date.

He said potential sites for the store had been discussed for more than 10 years.

HOW TO APPLY

- People over 14 years old wanting to apply for a job can visit mcdonalds.com.au or collect and return an application form from the Pialba McDonald's store
