Recruits needed to test compliance in their local pubs

A provider of ID and compliance services is seeking professional ‘pub testers’.

Serve Legal has announced it is paying people to do ‘audits’ of their local pubs to ensure that the venues are acknowledging their ‘Think 25’ ID-ing policies. As well as pubs, other places recruits may be asked to ‘test’ include local supermarkets, bookmakers, racecourses and cinemas.

Recruits, who will be aged either 18 or 19, will get assigned a certain number of ‘audits’. They head to the venue, order the age-restricted product requested – this may be alcohol or cigarettes, or may involve placing a bet, for example – and check their ID has been verified for their purchase. At the end of every audit, they have to submit a short report about the venue and whether they were queried about their age. Serve Legal will pay them for their time (in a pay-per-audit rate), as well as any travel expenses, and recruits get to keep everything they buy.

Recruits are required to be aged either 18 or 19 to be a certified ‘age-tester’. However, if anyone is over 19 but still likes the sound of getting paid to ‘mystery shop’, then the company also offers a wide range of other ‘audits’ that aren’t age-dependent. They include completing customer service audits to casinos, making sure vouchers are handed out with products, and even going to pubs to check what they’re showing on their TV screens.
