Do you like cider? Get paid £200 to taste test the Thatchers sold at The Clash

Bath Rugby and Thatchers have teamed up to offer a unique job, and are recruiting for a ‘taste officer’ to sample the Thatchers cider sold at The Clash on the 6th April. It may sound too good to be true, but it is 100% genuine. The ‘taste officer’ will be paid a flat day rate of £200, and will involve sampling the Thatchers that is used at The Clash, to confirm its quality is top notch.

The ideal candidate will need to be 18 years old or over, be passionate about cider and have a love for rugby – no other prior experience is required, and you will get free entry to the event, which will see Bath Rugby take on the Bristol Bears.

Bath Rugby and Thatchers endorses responsible drinking so the candidate will be required to take regular water breaks to rehydrate, eat and watch parts of the game. He/she will not be authorised to drive after the event, so alternate travel must be prearranged!

Game day gates open for pre-match entertainment at 11am, with the game kicking-off at 2pm. The ‘taste’ officer will need to arrive at 10:30am and will be on shift for just a few hours, so they can still watch the game. After that they can head to the West Fan Village to enjoy the rest of their evening. The successful candidate will be contacted by the 19th of March to confirm their position.


Must be 18 or over
