"Quality assurance jobs are an integral part in the food manufacturing process, ensuring that the product the customer receives is of the best possible standards," a spokesperson for the food recruitment specialist said. "Food companies know that their brand reputation is primarily built on the quality of their products, so continue to invest significantly in this area of the business."
The food manufacturing industry employs 500,000 people in the UK and there are presently in excess of 16,000 food job vacancies that need to be filled. For anyone with transferrable skills who doesn't yet work in the food industry or for graduates looking to begin their careers, there are a wide variety of opportunities to be had.
"Food and drink employers pay around 5% more than companies in other private sector industries,"
The food recruitment consultancy is made up of seven separate divisions – Focus Chefs, Focus Graduates, Focus Interim, Focus International, Focus Management, Focus Select and Focus Ingredients – and places candidates in food jobs at all levels of the industry, from executives through to directors.
