This job listing might provide sweet relief to Nutella fans.
The job listing, posted in Italian, says that Ferrero's research company Soremartec Italia Srl is looking for people interested in learning "how to taste cocoa, hazelnut and other semi-finished sweet products".
The company needs 60 part-time "sensory judges" to try its products. Per the Local, Ferrero is hiring dozens of "non-professional" testers to help them test ingredients at their Italy headquarters in Alba, Piedmont.
At the end of the training, Ferrero will select 40 recruits for two tasting panels. While normally the company relies on professionals for this all-important task, this time Ferrero is taking a different approach - they want regular consumers, whose taste buds aren't influenced by a formal education in nutrition.
According to the Local, the requirements are that candidates have no allergies and are familiar with using a computer.
The role, which begins 30 September, has a "competitive salary" for just four days work.
The 60 people recruited to join the ranks of the Nutella taste-testers would first go through a three-month training program to develop their taste and smell, and learn the proper terminology for describing the flavors.
