As well as sampling the products on visits to manufacturing sites, the lucky candidate will have access to unreleased candy and chocolate and see firsthand how it’s made. They will also have the opportunity to help organise events that “exemplify the ways we’re giving back to the city we call home.”

Some of the skills the company is looking for in a candidate are experience with writing and communication, photo and video editing, knowledge of social media platforms, and the ability to organise and manage multiple projects at once.

If working with the makers of the likes of M&M’s, Skittles, Snickers, and Wrigley’s gum sounds up your street, and you’re at least 21 years old, you can apply for the role here.
