FDF Scotland promoting career opportunities to Further and Higher Education Institutions

Responding to requests from our members, FDF Scotland is testing a new service to help the food and drink industry recruit new employees for work placement, internship and employment opportunities. Food and drink companies can fill out a form to advertise directly to students in further or higher education. FDF Scotland will then send directly to colleges and universities across Scotland that specialise in food and drink and engineering courses.
