If you're looking for an exciting and varied position and hold a food related degree then a food technologist role could be perfect for you. Food technologist work for food and beverage companies developing new recipes and working with new tastes. It's a fast moving environment that's always interesting.
Almost all positions are full time and permanent. Very senior food technologists may be able to pick up some consultancy work but it's very rare. Most of these roles are in factories though some may be in a kitchen.
Recruiters looking to fill a food technologist role will be particularly interested in those with food related degrees, other science qualifications and applied science are also of interest. It's a highly specialised area so having shown a prior interest in the field can also help you to secure an entry level position.
Many of these roles are with large companies that you could well recognise. If you're given an interview then it's a good idea to find out about their existing processes etc. enthusiasm is key.
Progression opportunities are plentiful in this sector with skills and experience working alongside flair and talent. It's the perfect role for those with a science background but who also like to use their creative side.
