With a starting salary of £50K, Vibrant Vegan’s Director of Taste position is a dream come true for most plant-based people.
They are looking for an experienced foodie, with an excellent palate to bring new and exciting recipes to their UK based business. The lucky individual will be responsible for discovering exotic flavours, testing new ingredients and feeding back all findings.
The successful applicant is required to travel up to four months of the year to exotic destinations such as Japan, Mexico, China, Chile and Turkey, as well as source overseas partners to import from. All travel expenses including flights, accommodation and food will be covered by Vibrant Vegans.
The position offers flexible working patterns, working approx. 35 hours a week with full sick pay and 28 days leave.
What? Way too good to be true. So before you rush off an apply, you need to be a suitably qualified individual with at least three years of experience in the food business. A degree in food science is preferable but not a necessity, and non-vegans are also eligible to apply.
The chosen candidates will go through a vigorous section process and be required to complete in house taste tests to assess their palates.
