Food & FMCG

Thriving Food and FMCG Recruitment

With over 20 years experience in this fast-moving sector, we are privileged to support the growth of some of the best known companies in food and FMCG manufacturing.

Food manufacturing remained robust during Covid, and with an acceleration of technology, companies have developed the agility to respond quickly to food safety issues, and the ability to audit remotely and at speed. Food fraud is one the industry’s greatest threats at the moment, with authenticity and traceability at the heart of business and technical strategy. Innovation has surged in many categories, with multi-millions being invested into products that deliver health benefits, and the plant-based and meat-free sectors.

BRC version 9 is due to be released in August 2022, so the pressure on factory-based teams has never been greater. Equipping the leadership team with capable, commercially savvy and technically competent staff is at the top of most HR leaders’ agendas.

We lead and manage FMCG and food recruitment projects for clients, identifying hard-to-find skills within Technical, Operations, Innovation, Supply Chain, Commercial and Engineering areas, ensuring they have access to the very best superstars for the Food and FMCG jobs they are seeking to fill.

Enabling Investment and Growth

Our clients rate how we enable them to invest in new plant, build new products and markets. Due to promotion and internal movement we recruit for both permanent and interim roles, from director level through to first line management. We act as a true extension to our RPO clients as their dedicated recruitment experts, attending Board / Exec meetings to help them drive recruitment, innovation, and growth. Food recruitment is in our DNA.

​We’ve recruited for the Food and FMCG jobs sector since the start of the century, and been really privileged to have placed many candidates in manufacturing businesses several times over.
