As a Business Member, you are entitled to send two of your young role model high-flyers on Tasty Careers Ambassador training each year – with many Members using the opportunity as a rewarding personal development platform for young employees working a variety of job roles.

Ambassadors receive free training on a two-day residential course and are backed with all the resources they need.

Tasty Careers Ambassadors represent the career opportunity in every aspect of the food industry – from young production line operatives, engineers, food scientists and marketeers, to sales staff, product developers, quality control assistants and warehouse staff.

They all have one thing in common – they are passionate about their work and role models for the industry.

Ambassador training, which takes place over two days, gives them the skills and confidence to present themselves, your business and the industry in an engaging way to other young people making crucial study and career choices.

As part of the wider Tasty Careers outreach programme, Ambassadors are making a major contribution to raising the profile of food and drink manufacturing as a career destination of choice for young people with the talent and ability to help your business growth.

The experience they gain will be an asset throughout their career and they’re putting the industry on the radar of other young people – a vital task in an industry with a rapidly aging workforce profile nearing retirement.
