This 'Pizza Taster' Role Might Just Be The Best Student Job Ever

There are loads of dream jobs we've grown up thinking about, like becoming the Prime Minister (the power!), an astronaut (space!), professional footballer (that paycheck!) or a vet (dogs!).

The only thing is, while we've been told by parents and teachers that we can achieve anything, we eventually reach an age where we realise it's not quite that simple - turns out some of those jobs are MAD hard to get.

But before you feel too downhearted thinking about all of those broken dreams, what if we told you there's one ideal role that you probably hadn't realised was an option? Oh, and it's something we guarantee you're more than qualified for.

The job in question? A pizza taster! See, we told you it was something you've got the experience for.


The pizza lovers at Pizza Pilgrims are on the prowl for a student pizza taster, which will see one lucky person not only getting to chow down on free pizza for an entire year, but also pocket a not-too-shabby £1,500 for their troubles.

The role is open to all students at Oxford Brooks and Oxford University, with applications opening on 17 September.

Applicants will have to fill in a pizza application form (there's a sentence you never thought you'd read), before creating a promotional video explaining why they're perfect for the role.

Finalists will then be invited to battle it out at an event on 29 October, where they'll compete in a seires of tasks including pizza box folding, pizza spinning and pizza delivery - before the victor is finally crowned Pizza Taster.

The winner will then become a local ambassador for Pizza Pilgrims in the Oxford area, while also being given the exciting task of creating their very own Oxford Pizza special.

But, better than all of that, you'll also get to head into the Oxford restaurant once a week with up to three friends to undertake super important quality control pizza tastings - as in, you and a bunch of mates have to go and eat a load of pizza for free. Yep, something you were born to do.

Of course, all that pizza might just send you into a bit of a food coma. Good news, then, that NASA are also currently looking for people to get paid £12,000 to sleep for 70 days.

Eating a load of pizza before napping for ages? Maybe there is a god after all.
