Years ago, pals Laura and Carl had a dream – to bring damn good chicken to the masses. And so, Yard & Coop was born.

Fancy working at the Home of Buttermilk Fried Chicken?


With venues in Manchester & Liverpool – we serve up a whole lotta chicken. And we need a whole lotta people to make that happen.

That’s why we put people at the heart of everything we do. We’re a small, independent business with big plans (and a big heart!) – so there’s never been a better time to join us than now.


WE LISTEN. Your voice matters – we’re always making improvements based on team feedback.

SCRAN. Get a free meal on your break, and 50% discount on your days off!

FLEXIBILITY. We recruit full and part time, and are happy to chat about what works best for you.

WORK HARD, PARTY HARDER. We love staff days out, parties, incentives, prizes and more.

PROGRESSION. We have excellent opportunities for progression and personal development.

TRAINING. Receive industry gold standard training – management, food safety, allergens and more.

SUPPORT. We have a close knit, supportive environment at work.

Yard & Coop is no ordinary operator. We bloody love treating our team members, and the longer you’re with us, the more benefits you’ll earn. 

YEAR 1. Get your birthday off work! Never miss out on that boozy bday lunch again.

YEAR 2. A £500 bonus, just to say thanks. That’d buy a buttload of chicken, for sure.

YEAR 3. An additional 1 day of paid holiday. Party, visit the zoo, duvet day, whatever.

YEAR 4. Pick a European destination and we’ll pay for your flights. Bon voyage!

YEAR 5. As a Coop loyalist, you’ll get treated to a whole 1 month paid sabbatical. No work! Like lockdown, but 100% more desirable.


We are currently recruiting ALL positions, but are specifically looking for the following senior positions…

MANCHESTER: Assistant General Manager

For specific role details please submit your information and we’ll contact you.
