Employment Trends in Local and Regional Food Systems Development

Job Locations, Jan-Dec 2021

Remote job opportunities made up more than 16% of the posting in 2021. Comparatively, in 2019 remote positions accounted for only 0.04% of job postings, as tracked by NAFSN. The COVID pandemic likely played a large role in the increase of remote job postings. California and New York posted the most in-person job postings, which was also the case in 2019 and 2020. Unlike in past years, all US states posted at least one position.

Job Types, Jan-Dec 2021

Compared to prior years, administrative roles made up a lower percentage of the job postings tracked by NAFSN. In 2020 and 2019 administrative roles accounted for more than 50% of the job postings; in 2021, this percentage decreased to 22%, during which time we also saw a diversification of job types. Other roles - such as operations, communications, and food systems policy work - slightly increased their share in 2021.
