From cereal to wine, and from washing up liquid to ice creams, the short-shelf-life items we purchase every day for rapid consumption are known as ‘fast-moving consumer goods’ (FMCG). These often low-cost products are sold in such huge numbers, meaning that the benefits of making, moving, advertising and selling them are enormous.
Online sales of food are rising rapidly, with the International Data Group (IDG) predicting that the sector in the UK will grow 51 per cent by 2023 to 7.9 per cent of the total market. New technologies develop all the time, as do new products, and logistics will become increasingly important post-Brexit as established supply chains are disrupted and need rethinking.
Many of the biggest companies are global players and located within the South East of England. The FMCG industry has jobs in many functions, including:
National Account Managers
Business Development Managers
National Account Controllers
Key locations for FMCG companies in the South East include Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, Hemel Hempstead, St Albans, other parts of Hertfordshire and areas of Northamptonshire including Kettering, Wellingborough and Northampton.
With leading salaries for senior jobs reaching in excess of six figures, now is an excellent time to apply.
