I support students and new grads to start their career in food and I LOVE to spread awareness of what a great industry this is, encouraging young people to pursue a career in food. I also recruit for the food industry too (in my spare time).

Name the top 3 characteristics you need to be good at your job –

  1. Enjoy working with people
  2. Communication skills
  3. Aptitude for social media and learning new ways to connect with people

Why did you decide to pursue a career in the food industry – 

This career sort of found me!  I was a generalist recruiter and I didn’t like being ‘jack of all trades and master of nothing’ so I decided to focus on the food sector. Â FoodGrads was founded based on seeing a huge need and gap in the industry.
