We are pleased to announce the launch of our new food industry job board and careers site – Find Food Jobs. Find Food Jobs will be live in July 2017 and will be hosted on the domain www.findfoodjobs.co.uk.
Find Food Jobs is a drinks industry job board developed from 10 years of operating in the food industry. Our aim is to provide career advice, jobs across all disciplines, industry blog articles e.g. Featured Employers and many more resources. The simple goal is for Find Food Jobs to be the one-stop platform for both professionals and industry employers to find each other in a busy and fragmented online space.
There are currently hundreds of individual employer sites, generalist job boards and social media channels, but there is not one site that brings food jobs and career resources together on one platform.
Find Food Jobs will have;
- Food industry specific job postings, focused and targeted unlike generalist job boards
- A tailored and curated food industry platform offering bespoke commentary, professional bodies, and employer features & video
- The Find Food Jobs careers blog, brought to you earlier this year
- Job alerts, meaning you never miss out on applying for that next opportunity
- Cost effective and targeted recruitment solutions on a platform that offers much more than simply job adverts
- Career support, advice insight and resources for those new to the industry or progressing within it
- If you are signed up to our Find Food Jobs newsletter, then look out for the further announcements. If you are not signed up please click here to register and we will send you further details.
