Fantastic food opportunities in Scotland

Like oil and gas before it, to say Scotland has a booming food and drink industry would be an understatement of epic proportions. More than that, a report by a leading bank now suggests as a result of this growth over 5,000 new food jobs in Scotland could be created by 2018.

Thanks to targeting new, emerging export markets like India and brazil, the Scottish food manufacturing sector could significantly exceed a targeted turnover of £12.5bn in the same period, with two thirds of the food companies expecting to increase their workforce.  Of the companies surveyed, respondents were adamant at least 940 food jobs in Scotland would be created. If this is replicated across the entire Scottish food manufacturing sector, nearly 5,600 new food careers in Scotland would be produced.

If you feel a job “north of the border” is appealing, thankfully can help. As the UK’s market leading job board specifically for food & drink, every day we have multiple food jobs in Scotland advertised covering technical, NPD, production, commercial, engineering and many, many more.
