Welcome to Food Matters Careers. Supported by the Food and Drink Federation, the new careers hub will be a place to not only showcase the many different career opportunities in this sector at a time when building a sustainable future for food, health and nutrition has never been more important, but also help to create a community of people who work in the industry in order to forge long lasting connections between industry, academia and those seeking opportunities in the food and nutrition sectors.

From food science and technology, nutrition and dietetics, innovation and NPD to sustainable supply chain management, packaging design, creative marketing and strategic branding, the hub will provide a wealth of information and a place where industry can connect directly with academia and future employees.

Over the coming weeks this hub will evolve to include some of the following features:

  • Virtual 1-2-1 meetings between industry, academia and candidates, industry job vacancies, roundtables, live events and webinars via the Food Matters Careers portal 
  • Industry experts sharing case studies of their careers – from entry level to senior management
  • Resources for young people to access with regards to different disciplines– food science and technology, nutrition, dietetics, sustainability, supply chain, packaging, marketing and branding and softer skills
  • Podcasts, videos, articles and ongoing insights from across the global food and drink industry
