Apprentices Urged to Take Up Tasty Careers
by scotlandfoodanddrink.org - 02/02/2011
"Food and drink manufacturers are urging students to think about tasty careers with their companies as National Apprenticeship Week kicks off on 7th February."
The industry is the UK's biggest employer with over 440,000 employees, many of whom are school or college leavers apprenticed to some of the UK's biggest brands. However, the Food and Drink Federation (FDF), the voice of UK food manufacturers, is keen to dispel some of the negative images around careers in manufacturing.
FDF director of HR, Angela Coleshill, says: "We want to tackle the myth that food manufacturing is all hairnets and wellies. There are many opportunities with food companies in development and research, science and safety as well as marketing, HR and finance. The sector is well paid with excellent prospects and is surviving the economic uncertainty well.
"We are urging young people to consider apprenticeships and encouraging food manufacturers to look at where they could make these opportunities available in their companies."
