Job ad: Professional Protein Taster
We’re looking for a professional protein taster to sample and feedback on the new protein products we sell on the site for a £20,000 pro rata salary. The job role will include receiving new products through the post, and trialling them for two weeks at a time, to then submit a full review back to us.
The candidate must have a passion for fitness and nutrition. While qualifications in personal training and/or nutrition are not required, applicants should weight train at least four times a week, have good knowledge of supplements and nutrition and a keen sense of taste.
The protein taster is required to test at least one product a month, however this is subject to change and the taster must have availability to trial up to three a month. It may also be required that the protein taster samples supplements and other fitness nutrition products as well.
The successful candidate must feedback on the product’s taste, texture, functionality and value for money. In terms of functionality, this specifically refers to whether it ‘does what it says on the tin’. The protein tester can request to trial the product for longer than two weeks, to reach a better judgement, if required.
Applicants must be 18 years old and above and have a UK home address. Both men and women are encouraged to apply for the position by Monday 11th December.
To apply, candidates must submit 500 words on why they think they’d be a good fit for the job, along with supplements they already use and love, how often they exercise and their social media handles (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter). Shortlisted candidates will have to take a general multiple-choice test on nutrition and exercise in the New Year to determine that they have the right level of knowledge.
