Planning is essential in the food manufacturing and processing industry. We work with food businesses of all sizes to help them strengthen their planning teams with new talent and experience.

Both our clients and candidates tell us that planning roles can be challenging and rewarding at the same time. There is a growing focus on internal training and support, which is leading to more promotions and career development opportunities.

We are seeing an increase in demand for all planning roles, from Production Planners and Material Schedulers to Logistics Coordinators, Demand Planners, Planning Managers, and Heads of Planning.

Despite the challenges, planning is a popular career choice for both entry-level candidates and experienced professionals looking to make a move into the food and drink sector. We have built a strong network of planning professionals and have helped many of them progress through their careers.

Focus is a specialist recruitment agency for food planning jobs.
