A Perfect McMatch


McDonald’s partners with Mai-Wel to provide employment opportunities to people with a disability. 

Mai-Wel LabourForce Solutions (MWLFS) takes pride in its ability to source employers who will meet the needs and fulfil the dreams of their jobseekers. One of the most rewarding parts of this process is building strong relationships with local businesses who share Mai-Wel’s values of promoting opportunity and choice to people with a disability or of disadvantage. 

Staff at MWLFS have had the pleasure of building one such relationship with McDonald’s Kurri Kurri and Cessnock. With more than two years experience of working with Mai-Wel, these businesses are currently providing a valuable employment experience for two Mai-Wel participants, Mary Marks and Frances Read, who are employed as Dining Room Attendants.

“McDonalds is a good place to work and make new friends. There is good company here for me. I think I’ve learnt more skills here; sweeping, mopping, wiping down tables and talking to customers. Everyone is really nice to me and always asks me how I am”, said Mary.

McDonald’s Kurri Kurri and Cessnock are true advocates of McDonald’s Australia’s long-standing commitment to supporting employment opportunities for people with disability.  Through the employment of hundreds of individuals with disabilities throughout Australia, McDonald’s Australia is proud to be part of an extensive network of community organisations, groups and citizens, pro-active in supporting people with disability.
