The only downside, for those who live elsewhere, the position is located in England. If you are looking to move, this would definitely be a good starting gig. Unless you have wickedly proficient tastebuds or are a chocolate legacy, we doubt that flying back and forth between the two countries would be a possibility. Regardless, it is quite a cool addition to any resume.
Mondelez International also owns Milka, Prince, and Oreo. Maybe if this job goes well, they will offer you a position tasting chocolates at all of their companies.
