Recruitment and Headhunting

Find a nutritionist: we provide you with the expertise you need when you need it.

Finding the right nutrition expert when you need it can be a challenge.
We want to make it simple for you.

Permanent and temporary positions or short notice projects and activities, we recruit for all your needs across all areas and levels of expertise, from graduate level to senior management.

In a world of self-appointed “health experts” we make sure you get properly qualified robust expertise, e.g. a Registered Nutritionist or Dietitian, vitally important for your business, brand and reputation.

Our combination of first-hand experience as nutrition professionals and strong networks differentiates us from other recruiters.

Recruitment can be laborious, and outcomes aren’t guaranteed. We want to simplify the process for you and make sure you are set up for success.

Permanent Recruitment

So you’ve decided you need to hire a nutritionist, that’s where we come in! Whether you are looking for a Nutrition Assistant, Nutrition Scientist, Scientific Affairs Manager or a Head of Nutrition, we can help.

We can work with you at every stage; from writing or editing the job descriptions, to sharing your position with our community of motivated nutritionists to presenting you with the top candidates. What sets us apart from other recruiters is not only our vast experience within the field, it is also that we recruit by conversations not computerised systems, and provide reassurance that we have spoken to each candidate we put forward so you can be sure they meet your requirements.

We provide you with a select group of nutrition experts with the right qualifications to invite to interview, not masses of uploaded CVs. A more streamlined, efficient approach.

Interview Support

Our interview service goes one step further. We can support you with interview preparation if required and sit in on the interviews and offer strategic advice and help you to consider the decision that is best for your organisation. This can be particularly useful if you are in a small team, don’t have a nutrition background or you have not hired a nutritionist before, or simply if you would like an expert view during the recruitment process.


Due to our 30+ years of combined experience within the nutrition field in diverse roles across academia, product development, communications, food industry, manufacturing, pharma, retail, sales support and catering, we have a strong network of fellow professionals we can personally approach if a head-hunter strategy is right for you to find a nutritionist. This can be particularly effective for high-level positions.

Temporary solutions

Your needs for nutrition expertise may be transient given the changing nature of the commercial and external environment. Sometimes there’s a need for immediate or additional support. We can help, whether by finding you a nutrition specialist or via Nutrition Talent Consultancy services.
