For over 60 years we?ve been the number one branded player in the frozen potato market. When it comes to bringing the nation together at mealtimes with simple, delicious and great tasting food we?re kind of a big deal!

You won?t just find us in supermarkets though. As well as owning a household retail brand, our respected foodservice business works in close partnership with distributors, chefs and caterers across thousands of the country?s pubs, restaurants, hospitals and schools.

From our humble beginnings in the rural community of Florenceville, Canada, McCain Foods is now a global business! We have operations within six continents, with plant sites and offices across the world.

#TakeABite of life outside of your university studies.

We?re recruiting for a Manufacturing Intern.

Based at our largest plant in Scarborough, you?ll join a line of successful interns that have all been in the same shoes, who?ve spent 12 months of their time at University walking through the doors of our HQ to gain some valuable experience. Some of which have since returned to continue their careers with us.

You?ll join us in July 2022, and you?ll spend the next 12 months working alongside our Scarborough manufacturing team. You?ll get an insight into what life is like working for one of the largest frozen food companies in the world, and experience lots of different elements within manufacturing.

You?ll get some hands on experience in our plants and gain an understanding of all our functional areas including engineering, production, quality and supply chain. Working on some tasty projects alongside our teams, you?ll also live and breathe the little wins that come with working in a professional manufacturing team, whilst also experiencing some of the real life challenges that go with it.

As an intern, you?ll not only get hands on experience, but you?ll also experience development within a professional environment where you?ll work towards set objectives, with a clear development plan and regular one to one?s with your line managers. You?ll also build a network both inside and outside of McCain as well as creating connections with other interns across the business.


Here at McCain we are go-getters. We are winners. And we work hard.
And that?s what we look for in our interns.

But you must also?

  • Be currently studying a relevant degree in Manufacturing or equivalent.

  • Have a passion and interest for food.

  • Be seeking a 12 month placement year to support your degree studies (which will run from July to June)

  • Must be available for interview on **** and be available to start early July.

  • And of course, a love of potatoes!


Although we do encourage you to taste the goods you?ll be pleased to know we don?t pay you in chips. For working hard, you?ll also get a great salary and some pretty good benefits including:

  • An excellent pension where we will pay double what you do, up to a maximum of 12% of your pay

  • Flexible holidays ? where you can buy & sell up to 5 days holiday per year

  • Optional health cash plan

  • Cycle to work scheme

  • ?Chips In? Volunteering Day Off – to make a positive impact to the competitiveness, resilience, and long-term development of McCain communities across the globe

  • And of course, being part of a Global business there are great opportunities to shine/thrive should you wish to relocate in the future. We have an ambitious 5 year growth plan that presents development & progression opportunities for those who seek it out.


You?ll be mainly based at our plant in Scarborough. It?s the largest plant in our portfolio and over the last few years it went through a big investment, meaning lots of new state of the art machinery to get to know. There may also be the opportunity to visit our other four plants across the UK.
