Posting an advert on LinkedIn, Meantime are looking for people they can pay to taste new beers and provide feedback.
The advert reads:
This could just be the best job in the world.
Meantime Brewing Company, the brewery behind modern beer staples London Lager, London Pale Ale and Yakima Red, are searching for part-time staff to join the company as official beer tasters.
Beer tasters are key in helping Meantime perfect and launch new products around the world.
A successful candidate will join the panel brewers as they taste, discuss and pass opinion on a range of different beers.
Where do I sign up?
The role has a ‘competitive salary… with beer benefits’ and since you are only required for three hours each Friday morning, this sounds like a cracking deal.
The brewery is looking for someone who has ‘an expert knowledge’, is a strong team player and can provide informed results.
So just be careful not to get too sloshed as the world is relying on your opinion!
To apply all you have to do is write a 30-word post on LinkedIn on why you should get the job.
Meantime encourage you to use video or photos although it isn’t a necessity.
After they have reviewed profiles, they will shortlist three candidates for a final tense beer-tasting round where someone will be crowned the winner.
