YOU can now get paid to eat cheese and drink wine this Christmas as an official food reviewer.

Cartwright and Butler is searching for one lucky candidate to taste test an entire season's worth of cheese and wine.

The individual will be paid £500 while tucking into a generous amount of cheese and wine and reviewing packaging.

No prior experience is needed but any applicant should have a passion for cheese and wine tasting.

Cartwright & Butler wants to hear from those who are able to give honest opinions and critical feedback and anyone with a good eye for product presentation and consumer experience.

To apply, email and share your name, CV and a short personal statement on why you'd be the best candidate.

On top of the cheese and wine, the individual will also be gifted accompanying crackers to help enhance the tasting session as well as a cheese board for presentation.

Gemma Barton, head of marketing & eCommerce at Cartwright & Butler, said: “The festive season is huge for us at Cartwright & Butler which is exactly why we’re looking to receive additional support in reviewing our cheese boards and tasting wines this year.

“The ideal candidate needs to have a passion for everything surrounding cheese and wine. From the presentation to the taste, we’re looking for someone who can give us a comprehensive review of each product so we can use this information as part of our market research.”
