Landing this job will mean you get paid to eat chocolate

It’s one of those jobs that chocolics could only dream of having but, thanks to Mondelez International, eating chocolate for a living is about to become a reality for one lucky cocoa-lover.

The company responsible for some of your favourite chocolate brands – think Cadbury, Milks, Prince and Oreo – have officially announced an opening to join their team as a professional chocolate taster.

The successful candidate will help them to test, perfect and launch new products all over the world.

Posted on employment social-networking site Linked In, Mondelez International is looking for someone with a passion for confectionary, the ability to be honest when giving an opinion and who is eager to try new and inventive products.

The lucky candidate must, of course, be able to taste chocolate and cocoa beverage goods and use clearly defined vocabulary to describe products.

Located out of a Mondelez building in Reading, the position is advertised as part time and ‘to work 7.5 hours per week Tuesday-Thursday 12:15-2.45pm.’
