Mead scored in Sunderland’s shock 2–1 win over reigning champions Liverpool in her first match at the top level. On 19 July 2015, Mead scored a hat-trick against league leaders Chelsea, making her the league-leading scorer with eight goals. Earlier that week, Mead avoided injury despite rolling her car three times while trying to avoid a deer.

She ended the 2015 season as the leading goalscorer in the WSL1 with 12 goals in 14 appearances.
On 24 January 2017, it was announced that Arsenal Ladies had signed Beth Mead on an undisclosed-length full-time deal. At Arsenal, summer 2017 signing Vivianne Miedema soon occupied the center-forward berth, so Mead had to play as a winger instead: “I’d played No 9 all my career until I came to Arsenal. I was a bit annoyed that I wasn’t playing No 9, because I thought that was my best position. But now I really enjoy playing on the wing. I can get involved, run at people, bring other people into play.” Arsenal won the 2017–18 FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup with Mead scoring in the knockout rounds against her former club Sunderland in the Quarter Final and against Reading in the semi-final.
Mead finished the 2017–18 season as Arsenal’s top goalscorer in the league with 8 goals and was voted Arsenal’s player of the season. Despite this, Arsenal missed out on qualification to the 2018–19 Champions League. On missing out on Champions League qualification, Mead said, “It’s a bit frustrating, we had a few results this season where we slipped up and that was our fault. That took it out of our own hands today and Manchester City deserved to finish above us in the end.”
By the 2018–19 season, Mead had fully reinvented herself as a versatile winger under Joe Montemurro and built up a good relationship on the pitch with Arsenal’s leading goalscorer Vivianne Miedema combining nine times to score, more than any other duo. She also broke the record for most assists in a single season with 12 and created more chances than any other Arsenal player with 54. She finished third in the WSL for total goal contributions with 7 goals along with her 12 assists. Mead capped a great season off by scoring the 3rd goal in Arsenal’s 4–0 title-clinching win at Brighton and Hove Albion on 28 April 2019.

On 9 April, she scored the game-opening goal in the 36th minute against Spain lifting England to an eventual 2–1 win.
She started in the first two games of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France. She provided the assist to Jodie Taylor’s goal during the team’s second group stage match against Argentina — a 1–0 win. After finishing first in Group D and defeating Cameroon 3–0 in the Round of 16, England faced Norway in the quarter-finals. During the 3–0 win, Mead provided the assist on Lucy Bronze’s goal in the 57th minute lifting England to a 3–0 win. During the semi-final against 2015 champions, the United States, Mead started on the left flank for England and provided the assist on Ellen White’s equalizer goal in the first half of the match.
