Cadbury is hiring a permanent chocolate taster to try new products before they hit the shelves

Cadbury is searching for a new chocolate taster to join its panel of experts to taste new products before they hit the shelves. The Cadbury job description says the chocolate panellist will be expected to taste, describe and provide feedback on products while collaborating with other panellists.

The job advert, posted by Mondelēz International - the company that owns Cadbury states: “Working with a team of tasters (also known as panelists), you will taste products, provide consistent, objective and honest feedback to share opinions and to reach agreement on the taste profile of products.

“To work collaboratively with others, you will use a clearly defined vocabulary to describe products and to aid in the discrimination among products. Full training will be provided to help you develop your taste buds and the specific vocabulary required to communicate your opinions.”

Tasters do not need to have any experience but should be eager to try new, inventive products and have a passion for food and beverages. Cadbury are recruiting for several permanent part-time positions working 7.5 or 8 hours a week.
