Have a great Summer!
The sun is out, the summer is over us and Foodjob Nordic hopes that everyone will enjoy the summer holiday.
The first six months of 2019 are in the rear-view mirror and summer holiday is approaching fast for our small team and the Nordic food industry. The business has been more volatile and challenging than for many years but is generally still buzzing with more than 20 closed management recruitment assignments but also a lot of bumps with sudden stops to almost all activity in some major companies the food sector. The food industry job market is overall still very active and buzzing with activity, but we are really interested and concerned to see, if this continues in the second half of 2019, since dark clouds are looming for the sector and the World economy too. We hope that this will clear out like the weather forecast for the summer ahead!
Another interesting development is that the high activity of acquisitions and mergers in our industry is still going at rapid speed, making the market ever more and more consolidated and polarized. This emphasizes the importance of being real food industry specialists and having real insights into people and organizational matters, since the pace of the business is constantly accelerating making the combination of speed and quality as paramount values for us at the moment. I expect this trend only to grow in the years to come, challenging our procedures and resources, and in essence: our business model.
Besides our many recruitment tasks, we have three other exciting projects to look forward to in the next six months of 2019. We are co-organizing the Career Day in Agro Food Park on September 25th were students and graduates get the chance to meet more than 25 of the leading companies within the food or agricultural business, network with other students and participate in two career preparing workshops. And like last year we will recruit companies and products for the International Food Contest.
We thank you for the trust given to Foodjob Nordic by our clients and candidates and look forward to seeing you all again fully energized and recharged in August.
