A cookie manufacturer is recruiting a "master biscuitier" and offering a salary of £40,000 ($52,000) per annum.

Border Biscuits is a family-run cookie manufacturer based in Scotland and is hoping to find someone who will taste-test its latest creations.

The role is full-time and offers 35 days of vacation in addition to free on-site parking.

Naturally, it also comes with free cookies.

The job description reads: "With finely-tuned taste buds and a talent for the technical side of baking, the successful candidate will spend their days launching products from the kitchen table to production, enticing new flavors worthy of a place in biscuit tins across the nation, as well as help lead the team in continuing to drive innovation, quality, and sustainability throughout the business."

Paul Parkins, managing director of Border Biscuits, said: "This is an incredible opportunity for someone to fulfill their dream of creating delicious treats every day and of course, be paid for it!

"The successful candidate will be crowned our Master Biscuitier and lead our passionate team in creating delicious ideas for new biscuit creations.

"We're encouraging people from across the country to apply and look forward to interviewing some great talent."

The role comes shortly after the UK's favorite cookie was revealed in a survey.

A poll of 2,000 people conducted by UK insight agency Perspectus Global found that chocolate digestives are the number one cookie in the country.

This was followed by shortbread, chocolate fingers, Jaffa Cakes, and chocolate Hobnobs.

A similar tasting role was advertised by Cadbury owner Mondelēz International in 2019.

The company was recruiting for four chocolate tasters to sample products before they arrive in shops.

Mondelēz owns several popular confectionery brands, including Milka, Oreo, and Green & Blacks, meaning successful applicants will be able to test a whole host of cocoa-based delicacies.

"Our Chocolate Tasters are key in helping Mondelēz perfect and launch an entirely new product all over the world by tasting and providing feedback just like our consumers," the job advertisement, as posted on LinkedIn, read.
