Cadbury is now hiring chocolate tasters and you can apply here

Where do we sign?

The sun has well and truly gone (again) and we’ve spent the whole month Googling getaways and the most Instagrammable Airbnbs.

But we’ve got some news that will brighten up your mid-week. Cadbury is hiring chocolate tasters – and we’re so in.

Mondelez International, the company behind Cadbury, Oreo, and Green & Blacks, is looking for four chocolate tasters to test out new products before they hit shelves in 150 countries. 

The right candidates will be paid £10.75 an hour for their time and expertise, and the best part is that you don’t need any formal qualifications. However, you will need to have ‘a passion for confectionary and taste buds for detection, honesty when it comes to giving opinion, and be eager to try new inventive products’.

You’ll be working as part of a team in Wokingham, Berkshire to taste test chocolate and cocoa drinks to help the companies perfect their recipes.

The main responsibilities include: being able to taste chocolate products and give objective and honest feedback, working within a team of panelists to share opinions and collaborate to reach an agreement on taste, and using a clearly defined vocabulary to describe products and aid in the discrimination between products.

However, before you start making grand plans to pack in your 9 to 5, the role is offered at up to eight hours a week so it’ll probably work best as a sweet side hustle.

You can apply to be a chocolate taster here.

The hours are as follows: 7.5 hours Tuesday-Thursday, 12.15pm-2.45pm; 8 hours Monday-Thursday, 3pm-5pm or 8 hours Monday-Thursday 10am-12pm on a weekly ongoing basis.

Sound like something that you’re up for?

Then get applying – we have a feeling that there will be a lot of competition.
