Our Track Record

An important measure of effectiveness in recruitment is track record, and in particular the level of repeat business and referrals a recruiter receives. 74% of our custom comes from repeat business or referral. The fact that clients and candidates want to work with us repeatedly tells us that we're delivering on what we promise.

Our mentality is far removed from that of the vast majority of recruiters. An example of this is our pledge to keep in touch with you for a 12 month period following commencement of your employment. In our culture, a placement is only a success if the recruited candidate completes 12 months employment with the client.

Our consultants are experts within food manufacturing recruitment and when Food Careers work on your behalf, you will receive the very highest levels of customer service. We recruit professionals for clients ranging from large food corporations to niche entrepreneurial food entities.

Our track record stands alongside any food industry recruiting firm in Europe, and our achievements are evidence of our success helping a broad range of food industry organisations to find the talent they need.
