    Synopsis: Finding, retaining and growing the skills required in the marketplace is one of the most critical factors facing engineering and manufacturing businesses. We are experiencing a significant skills crisis and need to think differently about attracting people today in the ‘war for talent’ but also consider how to encourage a sustainable stream of new talent to futureproof the growing demands of the sector.


    The specialist FMCG team at Jonathan Lee Recruitment will provide insight into how hard-to-find skills are being identified and attracted to the Food & Beverage sector, providing case studies of successful approaches and insight into how to develop a holistic approach to recruitment and skills planning. They will also address the additional pressures being evidenced in the market from ‘competitive’ sectors and the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
