Your next job could be as a biscuit taster - you just don’t know it yet… 

Every now and then a job ad comes up that simply sounds too good to be true - and if this isn’t one of those time then frankly, I don’t know what is!

Biscuit company Border Biscuits is looking for a new Master Biscuitier to join its team. 

With an enticing salary of up to £40,000, the successful candidate will be graced with the all-important role of taste-testing Border Biscuits' range and helping to develop and launch brand new products.

The Master Biscuitier will also be required to help lead the team in driving innovation, quality and sustainability throughout the business.

Managing Director of Border Biscuits, Paul Parkins, said: "This is an incredible opportunity for someone to fulfil their dream of creating delicious treats every day and of course, be paid for it!

"The successful candidate will be crowned our Master Biscuitier and lead our passionate team in creating delicious ideas for new biscuit creations.

"We're encouraging people from across the country to apply and look forward to interviewing some great talent.”

However, before you get too carried away, there are few qualifications required before you’re let loose on the biscuits. 

Applicants should have an HND/Degree level qualification in either Food Science, Nutrition or food-related studies as well as real life experience of managing food product development, preferably in the confectionary or bakery sectors.

They’ll also be required to have scientific and practical experience with bakery products and processes as well as a decent level of proficiency in IT, including Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Excel and be ‘a creative, innovative foodie, obsessed with the best.’

On top of the £40,000 the successful applicant will get 35 days holiday per year and discounts in thousands of retailers.

Where do I sign up? Well, here actually. Good luck!
