Food & Drink recruitment agencies, including those in the West Midlands, are in high demand to source organised and enthusiastic candidates who can succeed in what is a fast moving and pressurised industry.

Economic overview and salaries

Food & drink is an industry made up of passionate professionals as opposed to particularly well paid staff. The average salary in the sector will sit between £23K-£40K although there are many determining factors such as job role, experience and type of organisation that can affect this. Directors and managers could far exceed the average, whereas graduates and trainees will typically earn less than £20K. The industry covers an array of job roles such as hygiene managers, development chefs, marketing directors and technicians.

The West Midlands food & drink sector is responsible for around £6 billion a year and employs over 30,000 people, with Staffordshire and Birmingham seeing the most concentrated numbers. Food & drink recruitment agencies in the West Midlands are important for keeping the industry strong here and are able to use local expertise to source the most capable staff in the area.

Qualifications and entry requirements

The food & drink industry doesn't necessarily require a degree, but some positions will require this or a similar qualification. A food technologist will benefit from a degree in biochemistry, chemical engineering or food science, while a food hygienist will most likely need a CIEH in food safety. Each vocation will need a different set of qualifications and skills, but good communication, commercial awareness and a passion for the field are needed across the entire industry. Food & drink recruitment agencies are able to assess these skills and ensure clients are being supplied with staff who can make an immediate impact in the job.
