Career Choices is an interactive website that promotes the exciting and varied career opportunities available in the UK food and grocery industry.

This increasingly sophisticated industry is constantly seeking highly skilled individuals able to meet the challenges of a highly competitive environment. Targeted at school leavers, graduates and career service advisers throughout the UK, Career Choices is supported by 21 leading companies from across the whole sector.

IGD Chief Executive, Joanne Denney OBE, said, ìIt is often forgotten that the food and grocery industry employs over 16% of all employees in the UK. Many young people are not aware of the vast array of career opportunities on offer. Career Choices endeavours to enhance the image and create greater understanding of a career in food and grocery.î

IGD has been working with key companies in the industry on a number of initiatives which aim to build a better understanding of the food and grocery industry. Career Choices sits at the heart of this bigger programme of activity. There are many ìjobî sites now available online but this site is much more than that. It is unique, offering a one-stop-shop for information on the varied career opportunities available in our industry, advice on how to secure a job and ìswotî sheets to help people learn quickly about the industry in preparation for interviews.
