Get Paid To Work As A Mars Chocolate Taster, Yes Seriously
Fancy yourself as a chocoholic? Maybe you could go through a
bag share bag of Maltesers in one sitting, are never satisfied by just one Mars bar or a combination of the two.
If this sounds like you, we reckon we've found your perfect job - a chocolate taster. And not just any old chocolate taster but a paid one.
According to the Manchester Evening News, there are eight positions available at the home of Mars Incorporated that are available and all you have to do... have 'good taste buds', be available to work part time and be willing to commit to a 'long term project'. Check, check, check.
The role is being advertised through Adecco (you can apply here), it's in Slough, Berks, UK, so a move might be on the cards but a change of scenery is always good, isn't it?
Oh and they're paying £9.76 to £10.25 ($12ish) per hour for the position. And for 12 hours work that would equate to around £117-£123. Easy work.
The MEN reported that applicants will be put through a rigorous interview process that will see them having to rate different foods on a scale from 1 to 15 for how sweet, savoury, bitter or salty they are.
If you landed this dream role, you would have six-months of intensive training before you can your teeth into the job at hand. Training to eat chocolate. This is too good to be true.
The successful candidates will then taste a wide range of confectionery as well as participate in product and sensory related training.
Speaking to the MEN, Linda Lopez, senior sensory manager at Mars Wrigley, said: "We are thrilled to be recruiting for our next group of Chocolate Tasters.
"We encourage anyone that has an interest in the textures and tastes of chocolate to apply - we'll train you in the rest!"
Reckon they'll pay commission if one of the positions is filled off the back of this article? If so, my payment can come in the form of chocolate, please and thank you.
Maybe chocolate isn't your thing (imbecile) and you're more suited to the camping/festival life. Well, what if we were you to tell you that you could be paid £5,000 ($6,300) a pop to go to festivals across Europe, and all you have to do is make sure an anonymous millionaire has the time of his life.
Probably wouldn't believe me, would you? Your title would be 'luxury concierge' and you'd be employed by a wealthy fella who feels like he's missing out when it comes to festival enjoyment.
