The 2015 AGR survey showed that, whilst ‘image of the industry sector’ is increasingly influential on career choices, Fast Moving Consumer Goods is not seen as the most glamorous option by job-seeking graduates, meaning that attracting high-quality talent is a key challenge for this sector.
Skills shortages are also an issue, with 46% of companies claiming to have difficulties finding candidates with high level skills, and 45% citing underprepared school leavers and graduates as the greatest risk to the sector in the next 10 years. (Source: Institute of Grocery Distribution)
