Process

Focus is a specialist recruitment agency for process food and FMCG jobs. We have a proven track record of placing industry professionals into roles at all levels, from Junior Process Technologists to Process Managers, with SMEs and large multi-national global businesses alike.

We represent talented individuals with expertise in all aspects of the process function, including new product development, formulation and characterisation, food engineering and processing, financial and commercial, food microbiology and safety, nutrition and health, food sustainability and policy, quality control and assurance, and marketing and management.

We work closely with our clients to identify and place the best possible individuals for their specific needs. Our candidates are experts armed with process skills, knowledge, and the ability to tackle the day-to-day challenges of scaling up new products from concept to launch.

They are the glue in a business that ensures that projects are delivered to the brief, on time, and to the required budget. They engineer products as needed, reducing or increasing nutritional claims, replacing ingredients, increasing profits, improving quality, and adapting recipes to increase factory efficiencies and capacity. They also forge strong working relationships with colleagues across all functions and customers.

We have also supported businesses by building dynamic teams to move production into new premises, locations, or new builds, and by supplying Project Managers with the ability to manage multi-site trials and launches.

Our deep understanding of the process food and FMCG sectors gives us a unique aerial view of the current market, which we use to the benefit of both our clients and candidates. We work across a variety of food categories, so if you are looking for a new role in the process food or FMCG industry, please do not hesitate to contact us.
