Dream job alert: Cadbury is hiring people to taste chocolate professionally

Chocoholics, it’s time to put your expertise to good use - Cadbury is recruiting a paid chocolate taster. 

Mondolez International, parent company of Cadbury, Toblerone, Milka and more, is hiring a chocolate taster to ‘taste, describe and provide feedback on Mondolez products.’ 


The job advert also states that successful applicants will receive full training to help develop their taste buds, and specific chocolatey vocabulary to help them express their feedback. In addition to a passion for food and beverages, the ideal candidate will have the ability to use their taste buds ‘for detection’, the ability to express opinions honestly, an eagerness to try new products, a ‘communicative personality’ and a firm command of the English language. 

You won’t be alone in this venture. Tasters will work with a team of fellow tasters (also known as ‘panellists’) to provide ‘consistent, objective and honest feedback to share opinions and reach agreement on the taste profile of products.’

This tasty role is based in Wokingham with the option to choose between several weekday shifts. Unfortunately it isn’t full-time, so don’t quit your day job just yet. However, it does have a lot of potential as a side hustle for any chocoholics looking to earn some extra cash. 

Chocolate lovers with any allergens, dietary restrictions or intolerances should be aware that this post may not be suitable for them as they will have to taste products containing gluten, nuts and dairy. 

No closing application date has been announced as of yet, but it’s likely to be snapped up quickly. Interested? Find out more information and apply on the Mondolez International website.
