 Published on: 4th October 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

Former England and Arsenal footballer Kelly Smith MBE visited McDonald’s in Stanmore to put in a shift.

The Lioness’ all-time top goal scorer, from Garston, first got a job with the fast food giant when she was 16. 

She helped the crew out for a day and revealed how the skills she learnt whilst working at McDonald’s helped build her confidence and propel her to succeed in her footballing career and beyond.

The visit was part of the Made At McDonald’s campaign, which brings to life the opportunities and skills that a first job, part time job, or lifelong career at McDonald’s can provide.

From basic workplace skills like communication and time management, to more specific business competencies like managing budgets, teams and schedules, McDonald’s offers employees a wide range of opportunities to develop skills that will be essential throughout their careers.

Kelly Smith MBE said: “My first job at McDonald’s gave me valuable teamwork and leadership skills that helped me succeed in my footballing career.

“Coming back to McDonald’s has been great fun and I’m really grateful to the restaurant for all it has taught me.”
