The companies that take part in our employability programmes represent the breadth and diversity of our industry and include the big household names of the food retailers on our highstreets, and manufacturers of the iconic brands that sit in our cupboards. We are the largest programme of its type in the country and is truly unique because it involves so many companies!
The food and consumer goods industry is the UK’s largest private sector employer, employing one in seven people. IGD is uniquely placed to bring together industry professionals to help young people build confidence and the employability skills needed for a fulfilling career in the industry.
Together we help thousands of young people develop their employability skills and support our industry to develop a pipeline of talent. Find out below how you can take part.
