Calling all biscuit lovers!
Let’s be honest, working from home or at the office calls for biscuits. You’ve got to fuel all that hard work somehow. According to a survey, alongside books and tea, biscuits were one of the items that Brits were spending more of their money on during lockdown. Kantar reported that a whopping £19 million more was spent on biscuits than usual between April and June 2020!
So, with such a demand for biscuits across the UK and afar, Border Biscuits are now hiring a ‘master biscuiteer’ to help create and taste test their baked goods. From light and buttery Viennese Whirls to Sweet Memories Butterscotch Crunch, this new role will be able to feast their eyes on, and feast on, these classic biscuits every day.
The lucky foodie will also receive an impressive £40,000 salary, which also equates to over 26,600 packs of chocolate ginger biscuits, in case you were interested. However, the job requirements to work in the Lanark-based factory include a qualification in either Food Science, Nutrition or food related studies, as well scientific and practical experience with bakery products and processes.
Border Biscuits job specification says it is looking for a creative foodie with finely-tuned taste buds and a talent for the technical side of baking. Plus, the successful candidate will be “forward thinking, keeping abreast of advances within technology, ingredients and packaging.”
Responsibilities include taste-testing Border Biscuits’ range and helping decide which new flavours deserve a place in biscuit tins across the nation. The ‘master biscuiteer’ will spend their days launching products from the kitchen table to production.
As well as the tasty salary, Border Biscuits’ new employee will also get 35 days holiday per annum, free onsite parking, discounts in over 1000 retailers and a free online exercise programme. And if that’s not enough, there will be plenty of free biscuits, of course. Where do we sign up?
Founded in 1984 , Border Biscuits is an independently-owned family run business which is famed for its best-selling Dark Chocolate Ginger, which is Britain’s number one chocolate-coated ginger biscuit, and now comes in bar form too.
