Good People

A business driven by home grown talent
At McCain, we know that good people are the key ingredient to a successful business. In the UK alone we have over 1,700 employees who help our business produce some of the nation’s favourite foods. We actively support the development of our employees through extensive learning and development opportunities, with continuous improvement schemes and global 'best practice sharing.'  If you’re interested in joining our team, visit our careers page: www.mccain.com/good-people

Investing in the next generation
Investing in education for young people gives back to our communities and helps us to build our future as a business. Our engineering apprenticeship scheme is now in its fifth year and aims to ensure we have the best talent in place for the future.

We also support a wider-industry approach to help create new opportunities for young people in the UK food and drink industry, including supporting the first UK MEng Food Engineering degree at Sheffield Hallam University and the establishment of a University Technology College in Scarborough, where our head office is based.

McCain in the community
Our community support programme focuses on community and social issues in the areas where we live and work. We’re actively working with a number of partners to help educate the next generation, reduce food waste, encourage healthy, active lifestyles and support sustainable wealth within our communities. 

Ethical practices
Sixty years ago, the McCain brothers established our business on their belief that ‘Good ethics, is good business’, and this remains fundamental to our values today as a responsible company.

As such, McCain Foods (GB) Limited is committed to ensuring that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains.

Diversity and Inclusion 
We know that our business is enhanced when our workforce represents the diversity of our customers, consumers, suppliers and communities. McCain is championing diversity and real people in our advertising and has many initiatives as a business. As part of this we welcome the introduction of ‘Gender Pay’ reporting and acknowledge the need for progress in bridging the gap that exists today. Our report can be found here:
