YourFoodJob expands into Denmark
Newly established YourFoodJob.dk will operate out of its head office at Roskilde, located to the South West of Copenhagen, with support from the firm’s second office, located at Aarhus.
Director, Michelle Lilley, said, “YourFoodJob.com has consistently proved to be an essential partner to many international and UK food businesses. As part of our strategic plan, we are delighted to confirm the launch in Denmark of a sister site, Yourfoodjob.dk.
“Like the UK, Denmark has a significant food manufacturing sector, employing 100,000s of specialist people. But despite its size, scope and importance to the Danish economy, nothing like YourFoodJob exists.
“This presents a great opportunity for us and one we intend to capitalise on. This is part of an expansion strategy which will see the development of a number of new international products within the next 12 months, offering candidates and clients even greater choice and opportunities.”
In Denmark, YourFoodJob will be represented by a dedicated team of food experts with local knowledge headed by Mads Kinch Clemmensen. He will combine his extensive international food recruitment experience with a strong network and insight into the Danish food and beverage market.
Clemmensen stated, “In the Danish food industry it is a challenge to find suitable candidates for management and specialist positions, and I believe we should adjust the Danish food talent recruitment and talent attraction strategy. Yourfoodjob offers companies and food professionals an exciting new opportunity for cost efficient recruitment.”
Lilley added, “Our digital resourcing solutions are used by many of the leading food brands and manufacturing businesses in the UK & internationally including Pepsico, Bakkavor, Greencore and many more. We aim to help them identify top food industry talent and reduce both the time and cost to hire senior professionals. These solutions, combined with our continued commitment to service excellence and old fashioned hard work, have enabled us to become the leading food-specific job board in the country. We are 100% confident that we will replicate this success in Denmark and beyond.”
Trading for seven years in the UK, Yourfoodjob.com has achieved 23% year on year increase in turnover (30 September 2015, year-end).
