If you've ever sat and wanted you to be paid for takeaway food (let's be honest, who not?), Then it's your lucky day because the popular pizza chain Papa John's is looking for someone who who tastes her delicious food.

Sounds like a dream job, right? There is only one catch: to be successful, you have to be vegan.

The pizza chain is looking for their next "Chief Vegan Officer" – a role where someone has to try all the vegan dishes before selling them to the general public.

It is expected that the successful candidate will work at least 8-10 hours a month between January and June next year. You get a very handsome sum of £ 100 – £ 125 per hour, which together equal to around £ 6,000. Not too shabby, eh?

The role requires that the contestants be "the eyes and ears of the pizza chain for upcoming vegan trends," and the successful candidate can assist the Papa Johns research and development director in creating new vegan menu options.
