Jamie Stevenson, SJR Partners, October 2019

“Having just placed another Senior Technical position through YFJ it has reaffirmed my ongoing belief that for the food industry this is the go to website for Foodies! I have worked closely with James in 2 previous businesses over an 8 year period and had no hesitation in using them again when I set up my own specialist Food business. In comparison to others they are approachable, flexible and always insightful. We look forward to working with James and his team for many more years to come! Thank you again”


Guy Moreton, CEO, MorePeople. October 2018

Helen Crawshaw, Helen Crawshaw Search. September 2018

"Since establishing my own business 6 years ago, I have worked in partnership with yourfoodjob. Dave Fowler has provided outstanding customer service and ongoing support to my business’s advertising needs. Working in a very niche sector within the food and drink industry, advertising on some platforms is not always particularly successful, however I am always impressed with the calibre and relevance of candidates I receive when advertising with yourfoodjob and Dave’s commitment to helping me fill my vacancies."

Jo Richardson, Director, Winhurst recruitment. October 2016

“I approached YourFoodJobs a couple of years ago when I set up my own recruitment company, having worked in the food industry for many years. In the 3 years that I had no longer become a candidate, recruitment had changed significantly and as all my jobs as a National Account Manager had been found either directly or through word of mouth / recommendation, I knew that finding the right calibre of candidates was imperative to the success of my business. From the moment I spoke to James at YourFoodJob, he took the time to get to know me, my background, my plans for the business, and this was invaluable. He fully understood that I had to make every single penny I spent on advertising count and we trialled a few jobs, which some of the major competitors didn’t do. After a couple of months, I agreed to work with YourFoodJobs on a long term basis and I’ve not looked back. It doesn’t feel like a contract, it feels like a partnership and James genuinely wants to help and is at the end of a phone to bounce ideas off, make recommendations and assist in any way he can. I’d absolutely recommend YourFoodJobs and I’d definitely recommend James”.

Steph Walton, Director, RaeBrooke Recruitment, November 2013

"I have worked with for a couple of years now with good results. To build on this I arranged a meeting with my YFJ account manager and we devised a plan to increase my branding presence onsite. Since implementing the phone has rang much more with genuine enquiries, high level people looking for jobs– they are calling me even though I may not have the perfect job for them advertised – These candidates have been enquiring how we can work together.  Great timing you came to see me and we improved my presence and Brand on the site- it is working already. Good job!"


Michael Dale, Senior Consultant, Atkinson Page. 20th June 2013.

“After having previous reservations, we’d monitored developments from afar and felt it was difficult to ignore Yourfoodjobs’ presence in the market place anymore. Last year, we took the decision to work with them and after the initial 12 months, can confirm this was the right business decision to make. Results have been above expectations and the behind-the-scenes support has been agreeable too. We’ve now committed to another year and are confident the good work started will continue over the coming months.”

Saskia Arnold, Pertemps, 20th November 2012


“We recently advertised for the first time on for a Technical role based in Scotland. This was the first of what we hope to be more vacancies from this particular client and thus it was very important we generated a good response. I am delighted to say that it did, and very quickly as well. The candidate has now started at the company and we will be coming back to with future requirements.”

Toni Lea, Magenta Recruitment Ltd, 21 November 2011

"Having used a number of food specific job boards and advertising outlets for some time, we were beginning to get a bit frustrated with the lack of continuous quality applicants coming through so needed to consider our options. We decided to commit to a trial with during the summer of 2011 and were very encouraged both with the results and the pro-activity and support from the account team. So much so and particularly since the website was upgraded, we have since committed to a longer term contract and aim to build on the initial success of the partnership."

Martin Brown, Director, Henderson Brown, 11 November 2011

“Although I had many years experience in recruiting in the food industry, as a fledgling business when we launched Henderson Brown just over three years ago, it was vital we got off to a really good start. As with most new companies in this space, the key to success was to channel recruitment advertising budgets into the right areas and ensure our candidate attraction processes were working hard and smart from day one. We chose to give a try and this has proved to be a great decision for us. So much so, we’ve recently committed to our third successive annual contract. Plus, now they have launched the new and improved version, we look forward to sharing this success for many years to come.”

Lisa Pinhorne, Senior Consultant, STR Group, 11 November 2011

“Our relationship with began as early as 2007 and has proved to be a great success! Because they are always looking for ways to improve the way in which they manage and support our account. And they keep in tune with the latest job posting technology & candidate attraction tools, it was an easy decision for STR to continue working with for another year. We look forward to continuing working with them and sharing their success.”
