North America has remained the region that accounted for the biggest share of cloud-related job adverts among food manufacturers, data suggests.

In the three months ending April, the number of roles on offer in North America made up 39.8% of total cloud jobs – up from 35.3% in the same quarter last year – according to GlobalData .

Europe was the only one of four regions to see its share decline during the period.

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.
