Doritos to recruit superfan to test new products

Do you fancy a career change? How about becoming a professional snacker?

Well, step this way, as crisp product Doritos is seeking a ‘corn-oisseur’ to test its new products.

As part of the role, you will also be expected to visit the Doritos factory, attend quarterly research and development meetings for new product concepts, chipping in with ideas review, future marketing campaigns against a ‘Bold-ometer' and champion Doritos as the boldest tasting snack to friends, family – and in fact anyone that crosses your path.

The most Cool Original applicants will be picked to take part in an interview process, led by comedian Katherine Ryan. 

The role offers a £18k a year, as well as year’s supply of Doritos – if you weren’t sick of them by then. Applications close on 15 April – good luck! And you don’t even have to give up your day job, as you can dip in and out of this role [rushes off to fill in application form…].
