If you love Nutella, we have the ideal job for you!

Officially dubbed "sensory judges", the 60 new employees will work a couple of days a week starting in late September with three months of courses created to help them refine their tasting and smelling skills to the company's satisfaction. It's so popular that US discount warehouse club chain Costco started offering its own version this year.

Job site "Open-Job-Metis" posted the ad for the Italian company.

The Italian confectionary brand who is responsible for our other favourite luxury chocolate, Ferro Rocher, is looking for 60 "sensorial judges". That's the area famed for its white truffles, not to mention Barolos, Barbarescos and other fine wines. The lucky chosen ones will learn the correct terminology to describe each taste, and 40 sensory judges will be selected to make up two tasting panels. The training is created to sharpen the recruits' senses of taste and smell, as well as teach them the correct terminology to describe their reactions, The Local reported. No experience is required, but you will only be working two days a week, giving you plenty of time to enjoy your new life in Piedmont, Italy. Ferrero asks only that applicants suffer from no food allergies and feel comfortable using a computer.
