Our Student Work Experience Programme is aimed at full-time students looking for the ideas and skills that will support their future careers. Joining the team in your local McDonald’s restaurant for either five or ten days, you’ll gain valuable work experience and learn new skills that will last you a lifetime. These include planning and organisation, communication, confidence when dealing with customers, decision-making and team work. It’s also a great opportunity to meet new people!
