The proportion of food manufacturers hiring for cloud-related roles remained relatively stable in March, compared with the equivalent month last year, according to a new analysis of industry employment trends.
Some 43.2% of companies tracked by data and analytics group GlobalData were hiring for at least one of these roles during the month. That’s down slightly from 43.8% of companies hiring for cloud-related jobs a year earlier and down from 47.1% in February.
In terms of the rate of all job postings, cloud-related job postings increased in March, with 2.3% of newly posted job postings related to the topic.
The latter figure was the highest monthly figure recorded last year and represents an increase from the 1.4% of newly announced jobs that were cloud-related in the equivalent month a year ago.
The cloud is one of the topics GlobalData, the parent company of Just Food, has identified as a disruptive force for businesses in the coming years. Companies that excel and invest in these areas are now seen as better prepared for the future business landscape and better equipped to weather unforeseen challenges.
GlobalData says its data analysis shows that food manufacturers are hiring for cloud-related jobs at a lower rate than the average of all companies in its jobs analysis database. The average for all companies was 6.9% in March 2022.
The company’s job analytics database tracks the daily hiring patterns of thousands of companies around the world, pulling in jobs as they are posted and tagging them with additional layers of data on everything from the seniority of each position to whether a job is related to broader industry trends.
