What’s the deal with this role?

The successful candidate will be the world’s (and the company’s) first dedicated Meat Sommelier, possessing one of the finest palates in the UK. The role is a fixed term contract for 2 months, with a highly competitive rate reflective of the degree of refinement that we expect from each tastebud.

THIS™ requires stamina, as the successful candidate will be expected to give feedback on up to 20 different meat alternatives a day. Therefore, the weak of tongue need not apply.

The Meat Sommelier will work directly with the innovation team and oversee the creation of all new products, as well as making incremental improvements on existing products. You will be the first swallow and the final chew of every product before they hit the shelves.

What will you be doing?

  • Oversee the conception, development, testing and commercialization of new plant-based products for THIS
  • Daily tastings of THIS™ vs other Meat-Alternative products
  • Suggesting key areas for improvement to the Innovation team

What are we looking for?

  • Someone with a deep, end-to-end understanding of meat
  • An Olympically trained tongue that is relentless in its pursuit of perfection
  • Well versed in the language and art of tasting
