What's next for my career?

The continuing interest in the investigation between nutrition and health indicates an increase in career opportunities for nutrition graduates. There are many opportunities in charities and social enterprises that promote healthy eating. Most of the major food manufacturers and retailers employ nutritionists for either improving the nutritional quality of existing products and/or developing new products with health enhancing properties. There are also opportunities in the foodservice industry (e.g. wholesalers and catering companies). In addition, there are a variety of careers for nutritionists in the community and in governmental and non-governmental public health units.

In these roles you will be able to develop and implement health policies and programmes and promote healthy eating to the public. Opportunities for nutritionists also arise in research, education and journalism. Once you gain at least 3 years of experience after you graduate you can become a registered nutritionist (RNutr) and you may consider setting up your own consultancy business and work as a freelancer. 

There are many opportunities for registered associate nutritionists including working in: public health where you can educate people to make healthier choices; the food industry where you can provide nutritional information and help develop healthier products and clinical nutrition where you can advise on diets to reduce the risk of chronic disease. Opportunities also exist in sports nutrition, animal nutrition, consultancy, research, education or journalism.
