Elevation Recruitment has launched a new division in response to a surge in demand for candidates from the food and beverage sector.
The Rotherham-based recruiter already includes a significant number of Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMGC) businesses – and food manufacturers in particular – among its clients.
Elevation says it has received details of more than 30 engineering vacancies to fill from FMGC clients this year – a 60 per cent increase on the same period last year.
It adds that there has been significant growth in demand from the FMGC sector following the launch of its specialist Engineering and Manufacturing sector 12 months ago and the launch of its Leeds office.
The company has taken on senior recruitment consultant Tom Jagger, who has experienced recruiting engineering, operational and technical staff from supervisory to director level for FMCG clients.
Elevation’s director of engineering and manufacturing, John Bohan, said: “This year we have seen encouraging growth particularly from food and beverage businesses.”
