The Biscoff biscuits maker was advertising for an average of 1,072 new jobs a month over that period, according to GlobalData figures.

That equated to 447 new positions per 1,000 employees, the highest rate out of the 67 large food manufacturing companies tracked by GlobalData’s job analytics database.

Lotus also topped the leaderboard in March.

GlobalData has defined a large company as one with more than 1,000 employees. The data and analytics group included those for which it had comprehensive figures.

Lotus’ hiring rate has decreased in the past three months when compared to the previous three, with an average of 1,338 new jobs posted in the three months up to and including January.

French dairy group Unibel came in second place based on a metric of ads per 1,000 staff, with 127 new job postings. Ecotone, the France-based food group, was in third place.

When ignoring the size of the company, Nestlé came top of the rankings for total job ads posted in the past quarter, with PepsiCo in second and Unibel in third.

GlobalData’s job analytics database tracks the daily hiring patterns of thousands of companies across the world, drawing in jobs as they’re posted and tagging them with additional layers of data on everything from the seniority of each position to whether a job is linked to wider industry trends such as automation or artificial intelligence.
