So how does it work?

Well, the successful applicant will be sent 10 different products to review – all while working from home, we might add – providing feedback to Aldi on the entire range of products.

Essentially, drink some beer and rate your experience.

How do I apply?

To apply for Aldi’s official beer taster role, simply email and include:

  • Your full name
  • Proof of age
  • Links to your social accounts
  • An explanation of no more than 150 words of why you’d be brilliant at the role

“For beer lovers, this is the ultimate opportunity.”

Applications are open now and close on 29 August, with the winner announced on 2 September.
