Hospitality and retail jobs app
The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) has partnered with job recruitment app, Syft, to help hospitality and non-food retail sector workers.
The four month partnership will list potential job opportunities across the food and drink supply chain, with the aim of quickly helping as many people as possible return to employment. Syft will work with the FDF’s food and drink members to access their database of over 33,000 workers to fill essential jobs.
Syft is a flexible staffing platform, connecting fully verified workers with extensive experience in the warehousing, driving, and logistics sector. They are also GLAA licensed to supply food packaging and processing roles.
FDF’s Chief Operating Officer, Tim Rycroft, said: “We are delighted to be able to announce this partnership with Syft. Food and drink workers across the supply chain are hidden heroes.
“The FDF wanted to provide a solution for those who may be struggling to find work from other sectors and move them into food and drink where possible and Syft provides this opportunity. We hope this is the first of similar collaborations so sectors can share expertise and resources while the country navigates its way through this difficult time.”
Jack Beaman, Chief Executive Officer of Syft, said: “Partnering with the FDF will help thousands of our workers with prior experience in industrial and warehousing to get access to work.
“Our platform enables food and drink supply chain businesses to gain instant access to verified workers, lifting their staffing pressure and workload in this critical period.”
