The Milkybar Kid was a pretty iconic figure growing up in Australia. The blonde hair, white toothed, spectacle-wearing young child who usually sports a cowboy getup has been used since the 1960s.

Nestlé, the company that has put the Milkybar Kid to work, has announced it's on the hunt for a new face. However, children who look similar to the famous kid need not apply for this role.

They are looking for an adult Milkybar Kid to take on the new role and the job sound pretty good.


The winner will have to taste-test new Milkybar flavours while still in development phase, be treated to a free supply of Milkybar Whirl, have the opportunity to feature in marketing campaigns and media interviews, wear a custom made Milkybar Kid-ult uniform, take a behind the scenes tour of the magic that goes into creating the world-famous Milkybar, and receive an hourly rate for all work undertaken.

The contract would be for two months, so make sure you've got enough time in your diary for the job.

You can apply for the job here, but there are some important things you'll need to have in order to get the job.

Nestlé is looking for someone who is a mega Milkybar Fan, someone who loves white and milk chocolate, 'feels forever young' and doesn't take themselves (or life) too seriously, and over the age of 18.


Nestlé Head of Marketing Confectionery Joyce Tan said: "We know Australians of a certain age fondly remember the Milkybar Kid, so we're excited that Milkybar Whirl is giving the nation an opportunity to relive their childhood.

"We're looking for an ultimate Kid-ult, someone who's still a kid at heart - but don't worry spectacles and freckles from the original ads are not necessary!

"Whether it's through this new role or enjoying the new Milkybar Whirl, we want to show Aussies that even though we're all grown up, we can still enjoy a taste of our childhood."

All you have to do is send in a 30 second video of yourself and why you reckon you're the best person for the job.

Applications close on June 19 so you better be quick.
