We want every McDonald’s customer to have a brilliant experience, every time they visit. That means hot food in a clean and friendly restaurant. As a Crew Member, you’ll make it happen, whether you’re preparing food, serving on the till or helping out in the dining areas. We’ll train you in our high standards of customer service, food preparation, and cleanliness and hygiene. But the rest is up to you.

What we look for

A genuine smile and an ability to connect with others is a great start. You love dealing with different types of people and are ready to work as part of a team. High levels of energy are vital. You’re efficient at getting things done, but that doesn’t mean you skip on the details. You like to get things right – every time.

To apply for a job as a Crew Member, you'll need to have finished secondary school and be legally allowed to work in the UK.
