Drop your current job because Ferrero will pay you to eat Nutella

Even if you're happy at your current job, you're probably going to want to consider this one. 

Nutella is looking for taste testers to go live in northern Italy and eat their chocolate hazelnut spread at their factory. What a time to be alive. 

It's the first time Ferrero have recruited the public for the job, which requires four hours of Nutella eating weekly, which can be spread out over the course of two days. 

Italian newspaper La Reppublica reports wannabe tasters don't have to have any previous experience, but must have no allergies, know how to use a computer  and love chocolate, we assume. 

The complete job listing reads:

We are looking for people who would like to learn how to taste cocoa, hazelnut grains, and other semi-finished sweet products.

A paid training course (beginning in September and lasting three months) will aim to educate the sense of smell and taste and improve the ability to express in words what will be perceived with the tasting of semi-finished products.

At the end of the course, candidates deemed suitable will be hired with a long-term supply contract with a part-time commitment of two days per week of two hours.

There are some terrible catches however: 

Firstly, you'd have to relocate to the small, piteresque town of Alba, in Italy's northern Piedmont region. 


The second requirement, probably a bit harder to get around, is the chosen person must speak Italian. 

If you fit the bill, get drafting that cover letter ASAP.
