Restaurant chain TGI Friday's is to create another 700 jobs before the end of 2015.
The move includes 100 management-level positions across several sites, with the news coming in the same week that the business topped the Sunday Times' Best Big Companies to Work For list.
The business, which was acquired at the end of last year by private equity firm Electra Partners for £225m, is expected to open a further six restaurants this year, with another 10 planned for 2016.
"We're also very pleased to be creating at least 700 careers this year right across the UK. We will therefore be on the lookout for great candidates to come and join the Fridays family in 2015, forge their careers with us in the hospitality industry and live our four key values of pride, passion, personality and protection."
TGI Friday's was a new entry in the Sunday Times' Best Big Companies to Work For list this year.
It took the top spot after employees, who were asked to complete detailed questionnaires on the business, reported a "strong sense of family" (82%) and "fun" (86%). They also felt that working for the business was "good for personal growth" (80%) and that they "love working for the chain" (79%).
