Thursday, June 13, 2019 - 09:30

Following months of behind-the-scenes work, we’re happy to announce that our new Tasty Careers website is now live! An online hub of all things food and drink careers, it’s now an even more accessible go-to platform for students, teachers and parents.

We’ve also merged the Welsh and national sites together so that career opportunities are visible to all and to ensure that both audiences have access to the same great content.

The new site is tailored towards students, teachers and parents with separate microsites for each group ensuring that the right audience sees the right information.

Students visiting the site can research the many reasons it’s worthwhile exploring a career in the food and drink industry, as well as researching the variety of different job roles available across the sector. The new site has over 100 job descriptions, allowing visitors to read more about what it’s like to work in the industry. We’ve got descriptions for everything from a day in the life of an agronomist* to 24 hours as a game keeper.

*These are scientists who look for the best way to increase soil productivity! Ensuring that the soil is consistently producing high quality crops without harming the environment.

Students can access the Tasty Jobs portal, which is regularly updated with roles from some of the biggest household brands in the UK, and learn about apprenticeships and training courses taking place at some of the most prestigious colleges, universities and training providers across the country.

For teachers, the new site boasts an updated resource function which contains a host of downloadable content including lesson plans, Tasty Careers literature and information about the school’s Tasty Challenge.

Parents accessing the updated site will be able to find out about the support and guidance available to students interested in pursuing a career in the food and drink industry as well as a full list of FAQs which help answer some of the most common questions parents might have about the industry. Details about how to support a student taking place on an industry apprenticeship, as well as information about the different types of apprenticeships available, is also on hand. The site has a section on supporting young people keen to explore different career paths across the industry and also outlines the financial and practical support on offer to young people undertaking apprenticeships.

We’d love to hear your feedback on the updated website! Let us know what you think by getting in touch at info@tastycareer.org.uk.
