The brewer, Carlsberg Singapore, is doubling the salary for its 'Probably The Best Job in the World' campaign


The Danish beer company, Carlsberg, has doubled the salary for what has been described as “Probably The Best Job in the World” in Singapore. The brewer is recruiting for an exclusive beer taster position and will pay £11,211 ($20,000) for just four hours of work.

The suitable candidate will require no educational qualification or experience. They will be expected to take up the chore of drinking beer and will act as a Carlsberg ambassador. Applicants are expected to describe why they are the best fit and name a song that describes how they feel when they drink the beer.

According to Today, Jimmy Toh, general manager of Carlsberg Singapore said: 'Whatever Carlsberg does, we strive to do better. While the exhilarating job of a beer taster remains the same this year, the successful applicant will earn S$20,000 (£11,300) which is double the salary offered last year.

'We are looking for the best candidate that exemplifies this spirit, and demonstrates passion for the Carlsberg brand to bag this unique job opportunity.”

The job offer is only open to those aged 18 and above and the closing date for applications is 4 December 2016.
