Can candidates feel confident of changing job in the current market?

The lack of qualified food professionals is now so critical that on 10 September there is a summit to enable food and drink manufacturers to discuss the crucial issue of the shortage of food scientists and technologists in the sector.

Food and drink sector skills council Improve has joined forces with the Institute of Food Science and Technology (IFST) and Defra, to host an employer event looking at the implications of the shortage, and discussing opportunities for collaborative action.

Research from Improve has highlighted

the fact that one in four food science and technologist roles in the industry remains unfilled - a shortage of more than 2,000 qualified professionals. With fewer young people choosing to study food science, and many of those that do ultimately pursuing careers in different sectors, it is a problem that's set to worsen unless urgent action is taken.

Although recruitment in other industries may be slowing down, food is fashionable, we love it and more importantly, we need it. For those wanting to change jobs within the food industry, there may never be a better time. Why not check out the wide range of opportunities currently available on the Focus site?

As a food professional, why not share your views on this topic. We're always happy to receive your comments...
