Students in Leicester could win a years' supply of free food

Students can apply for a job as a takeaway taste tester.

As students across the country begin a different version of fresher’s weeks, online food portal Foodhub is offering students across Leicester the chance to bag a years’ worth of free food worth over £750.

Students from universities in Leicester will be able to apply for the Tastiest job as Chief Student Taste Tester for Foodhub, winning the chance to taste offerings from takeaways and food outlets in their area for free.

To apply for the dream job, students from De Montfort University and University of Leicester should show or tell Foodhub why they have the best tastebuds for the job with this online application form.

Students feeling particularly adventurous can upload a video of themselves explaining why they should be chosen for the best job on campus. 

The winning student will be chosen by a panel of food experts and will be expected to write reviews of the local takeaways they visit – getting their weekly supply of free grub from their favourite Leicester takeaways.

To be eligible for entry, students simply need to use their university email address when submitting their job application.

Wil Chung, Foodhub spokesperson, said: “We know that virtual freshers’ week won’t be as fun as previous years so we want to offer students the chance to bag the best job at Uni. “We want to ensure we have the tastiest, best takeaways across the region on our app and know that students are connoisseurs of takeaway food when they first leave home so we couldn’t think of a better person to join our team. “If you’re at university in Leicester then we want to hear from you, simply tell us, in words or video, why you are the best person to take on the takeaway tasting challenge. In return, that person won’t need to buy a takeaway meal for a whole year.” 

All runners up who aren’t chosen for the taste testing job will receive a 25% discount code of their next takeaway from Foodhub.
