Asia-Pacific sees hiring boom in food-industry cloud roles

By Michael Goodier

Among food manufacturers, Asia-Pacific was the fastest-growing region for the hiring of jobs related to the cloud in the three months ending October, GlobalData analysis shows.

The number of roles in Asia-Pacific made up 24.1% of total cloud jobs – up from 20.2% in the same three-month period last year.

That was followed by Europe, which saw a 1.6 year-on-year percentage point increase in the hiring for cloud-related positions.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, which tracks the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData’s thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which businesses are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

By tracking them across job ads, GlobalData says it can see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels – and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

Which countries are seeing the most growth for cloud roles in the food industry?

The fastest-growing country was Poland, which accounted for 3.5% of all cloud job adverts in the three months ending October 2020, a figure that rose to 8.7% in the three months ending October this year.

That was followed by the United Kingdom (up 2.5 percentage points), India (up 1.5), and Spain (up one).

The top country for cloud roles in the food industry is the United States, which had 24.9% of all jobs in the three months ending October.

Which cities are the biggest hubs for cloud workers in the food industry?

Some 7.8% of all food industry cloud roles were advertised in Suresnes (France) in the three months ending October – more than any other city.

That was followed by three cities in India – Bengaluru with 7.8%, Chennai with 4.7% and Hyderabad with 4.3%.
