Jobs at food manufacturers related to cybersecurity were online for less time in the first quarter than a year earlier, data claims.
The posts were up on average for 14 days before they were taken offline, a decrease compared to the equivalent figure a year earlier, indicating the required skillset for these roles has become easier to find in the past year, GlobalData suggests.
Cybersecurity is one of the topics that GlobalData, our parent company and the source of the data for this article, has identified as being a disruptive force facing businesses in the coming years. Companies that excel and invest in these areas now are thought to be better prepared for the future business landscape and better equipped to survive unforeseen challenges.
On a regional level, these roles were hardest to fill in South & Central America, with related jobs that were taken offline in the first quarter online for an average of 22 days.
At the opposite end of the scale, jobs were filled fastest in the Middle East and Africa, with adverts taken offline after five days on average.
Food manufacturers also found it easier to recruit cybersecurity jobs than the wider market, with ads online for 58.8% less time on average compared to similar jobs across the entire jobs market.
