Swizzels create greatest job in the universe

16 March 2015

swizzels sweets Swizzels - the good folks behind Love Hearts, Refreshers, Drumsticks and those ace chalky lollipops - are looking for someone to become their chief taster.

Sod your teeth - this is the best job in the universe and you can always get some dentures.

There's a catch though. The job itself will pay a salary in sweets, so unless you want to run a black market on chewy, fizzy sweeties, you might want to look elsewhere if you want to keep up with your rent.

So what's the job entail? Well, you have to be over 16 (sorry kids) and show that you have the following skills.

A sweet tooth
Previous and detailed experience of eating sweets
Finely tuned taste buds
A passion for confectionery
The ability to act like a kid in a sweet shop
An adventurous and creative mind

Your responsibilities?

Going behind the scenes at the Swizzels factory in Derbyshire
Learning the tricks of the trade alongside new product development manager Emma Herring
Sampling existing and brand new (to the market) products that no-one’s tried before
Helping to develop new and exciting products
Receiving highly confidential sweet prototypes through the year to test and feedback to the team

Sarah-Louise Heslop, Swizzels marketing manager said: "We’re looking for our biggest fan to join us at our factory and help us develop new additions to our range. No experience is necessary – just a love of sweets."

If you want in, then you have 'til April 30th to write 500 words or submit a short video entry detailing why you're the person for the job. Click here to get on it. Might be worth looking up type 2 diabetes while you're at it.
