Chocolate lovers - pin back your ears and have a bit of this. You could get paid to eat chocolate, reported LADbible.
Yes, you heard that right -you could get paid to eat chocolate if you are one of four lucky people hired by Mondelez International, the firm which brings you Oreos and Cadbury's chocolate snacks.
It is going to pay someone to work for the company as a "Chocolate and Cocoa Beverage Taster" and there are three positions advertised for "Chocolate Tasters".
If you fancy chucking in a CV for any of the above roles you will need to demonstrate that you have "taste buds for detection" and "passion for confectionery".
You will also - according to the job description - need to be "eager to try new and inventive products" and have "a firm grasp of the English language".
The successful candidate will work alongside a team of expert panellists to discuss and share ideas about how to make the chocolate snacks or drinks even more delicious.
If you want to apply you'll have to go to the Mondelez International website submit your application here.
The role is only part-time and pays £9 per hour, so it's above minimum wage at least. On top of that, you get to eat a whole load of chocolate (although it doesn't say if there are any other benefits like, say, a company gym to work off all of that chocolate).
The position requires you to work for 7.5 hours a week, between 9:30am and 12 noon on Tuesday to Thursday or Monday to Thursday between 3pm and 5pm.
It is based out of the University of Reading Consumer Science department, so you'll probably need to either live near there or be willing to make a long journey every week.
Applicants have until February 16th (next Friday) to apply, and if they've not heard back in two weeks you should just assume that you've not got the job as they're expecting a whole load of people to apply for it.
Last year they advertised for a similar role and had 6,000 applications in total from as far afield as the USA and Australia. It was the 5th most viewed job on LinkedIn in 2017 overall.
