Okay so we know we’ve thrown a lot of amazing jobs your way recently, but this one involves getting paid to eat Greggs- and that deserves a shoutout by itself.
There’s been some rather unusual, but nonetheless exciting, jobs advertised as of late. We’ve seen companies offering to pay £150 a day to test bottomless brunches with your friends; an offer of £1000 payment in return for your two pence on taco and tequila for Cinco de Mayo and even a summer job offering to pay partygoers £7,500 to visit UK festivals this summer- it really has been a wild few months in the dream job market.
This job comes close to our personal favourites: a £1,200 salary to become a ‘professional recipe taster’ and ‘doughnut testers’ from a local bakery- but this one involves the most British meal of all time: the humbled Greggs sausage roll.
But that’s just the beginning, Materials Market is looking for takeaway-lovers to fill the position of ‘takeaway tester’ for one month- and the rewards are rather handsome.
Get paid £1,000 for testing out the likes of McDonald’s Big Mac and Subway’s infamous Meatball Marinara and all you need to do is keep a diary of how you feel after the meal.
Best of all, there’s six vacancies for this job, so there’s a good chance that you and your mates can all make the most of this position.
Advertised on the Materials Market website, the job description says that successful applicants will be expected to test out a total of 20 of the UK’s ‘favourite fast food meals’ over a period of early morning breakfast or at lunchtime. Some of the suggested meals include, Greggs, McDonalds and Subway but it is expected that they will extend to other national chains
All expenses are paid for meal purchases made during the month-long experiment, so you won’t even need to dip into your payment for your lunch.
Once you’ve finished your meal, the job will require the takeaway tester to make notes of “how you feel after eating each meal, monitoring your levels of fullness, energy, productivity, sluggishness and overall satisfaction, immediately after consuming the meal and two and four hours afterwards.”
As part of the process, applicants will get to work with a partnering nutritionist to help you devise an onsite content guide for future customers and advise them based on your own reviews.
Not a bad workload for a free lunch.
If you reckon you’re up for the challenge, applications must be filled in by Friday 27 May 2022.
