CALLING ALL carnivores! The dream job for meat-lovers the world over has arrived and best of all, it’s over in Ireland.
A company in Dublin is looking to recruit candidates to join a specially selected panel made up of members of the general public who share a common love and appreciation for meat in its many forms..
Definitely not one for the vegans and vegetarians among us, the successful candidate will be expected to taste and evaluate a variety of cooked meats on a near-weekly basis.
The job is being advertised by the Teagasc Food Research Centre in Ashtown, Dublin 15 ygor a major national project titled Meat Technology Ireland.
Anyone wishing to put themselves forward for the job needs to be available for a two-hour screening session set to take place in October.
Should you pass this initial screening, then you will be expected to make yourself available for at least two, two-hour tasting sessions, per week.
The tasting sessions will be held between 10am and 12pm but come with a handsome reward beyond simply scoffing some sausages and steaks.
Tasters will be paid an impressive €26 per two-hour session and will be expected to attend sessions most weeks.
All that and they will go home well fed too.
