Europe was the fastest-growing region for the hiring of artificial intelligence-related jobs among food manufacturers in the three months ending March, GlobalData suggests.

The number of roles on offer in Europe made up 24% of total AI jobs, up from 19.8% in the same quarter last year.

GlobalData 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. The data and analytics group, Just Food’s parent company, seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

By tracking the themes across job advertisements, 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.
