Nutritionalist jobs & careers

Working with food, nutritionists study how it is used in the body, and the relationship between diet, health and disease. Their work differs from that of dieticians, with duties typically involving:

  • Working mainly in a preventative role
  • Dealing with healthy people
  • Working mostly with groups

Training and certification are essential for any jobs as a nutritionist.

There are growing opportunities in this field, in areas as diverse as research, education and journalism. In addition, the NHS is increasingly employing nutritionists for posts which have no clinical component to them. Nutritionists can also find work for:
  • Local authorities
  • Food and drink manufacturers
  • Supermarket chains
  • Trade associations and promotional groups
  • Education and research establishments
  • The media
  • Pharmaceutical companies

In addition, there are also possibilities working in the voluntary sector or even with relief agencies in developing countries. Finally, some practitioners work on a self-employed business, out of their own homes or sharing space with other types of practitioners in a health clinic.

For more information on all aspects of training, certification and employment prospects, contact the following:
