Something for the weekend: Luxury dessert organisation Pots and Co is seeking a part-time pudding taster to offer feedback on its chocolate and fruit-filled delicacies for a wage of £15 an hour.
Pots and Co posted the job advertisement on its LinkedIn page, asking for sweet-toothed dessert lovers to apply for the drool-inducing role of professional pudding taster.
The position involves working from home once a month for a three-month period, making it ideal for candidates looking to build a rich work-life balance. Furthermore, it also provides a tasty salary of £15 an hour, to line the selected employee’s pockets as well as their stomach.
Pots and Co will send the chosen dessert aficionado products from its different ranges, including its decadent chocolate ganaches and fruity possets; the pudding taster will then have to provide honest feedback on flavour, appearance and texture.

Those with dietary restrictions, food intolerances or allergies should skip the application process because some treats contain gluten, nuts and dairy.
Applicants are required to submit their interest by emailing Pots and Co with 150 words explaining what puddings mean to them.
The job posting on LinkedIn reads: “Do you decide your pudding before your main because it’s the most important course of the day? Do you have a secret sweet treat stash hidden away at all times? Is your idea of heaven puddings sent straight to your doorstep for the rest of 2019?
