Welcome to FoodStart, IFST’s unique platform providing all types of work experience placements in the food sector – 14-18 secondary school placements, graduate placements, internships and holiday jobs.
We know how difficult it can be for students to find meaningful work experience placements and also the challenges for employers when looking to provide placements. FoodStart has been especially designed to make the whole process very quick and straightforward for everyone.
This facility is provided free to students and food employers using the system thanks to the generous support of food-based businesses and IFST members.
