The food industries continue to search quality control candidates

There has been an upsurge in the number of employers seeking quality assurance candidates

The firm, which has more than 300,000 candidates in its database, says the growth in this area has been one of the leading trends this summer, as food manufacturers look to consolidate and enhance their standards in meeting the expectations of consumers. Focus Management Consultants currently has a number of great opportunities available for anyone seeking a new position.

"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," Focus Management Consultants' spokesperson said. "So whether you're just starting out in the sector or your skills could be applied to food and drink, this could be the perfect time to enter the industry and build a successful career."

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.
