It’s true! A UK company are looking to pay one lucky person £50,000 a year to travel the world, discovering new food.
The new plant-based food subscription service the Vibrant Vegan Co. are looking to hire a ‘Director of Taste’, meaning all travel, accommodation and food expenses covered.
Do not think that if you’re not a vegan it will go against you, it definitely helps but isn’t compulsory for the job role. The job will be focused on plant-based ingredients as you travel around trying new foods and all you have to do is report back on your discoveries to the company.
The exciting job could mean travelling for up to four months at a time, visiting countries such as Turkey, Chile, India, China, Mexico and Japan. The person will be looking for exciting new ingredients and recipes which the Vibrant Vegan Co. will then use.
If you want to apply you must be ‘suitably qualified with at least three years’ experience in the food business or as a chef’ and ‘preferably have a degree in Food Science or similar’, although the company notes this isn’t compulsory.
The job description states:
“We are looking for an experienced individual with an excellent palate, to bring exciting new and innovative recipes to the UK as our new Director of Taste. You will be responsible for finding, then taste testing new exotic ingredients and recipes, which will be fed back and incorporated into our products.”
“You will help set up overseas partnerships to source the new ingredients you find and will be expected to work up to 35 hours a week, with flexible working patterns available.”
“Full sick pay and 28 days holiday. It’s important that the candidate is available and willing to be away from the UK for long periods of time.”
