The Green & Blacks 'taste assistant' will work alongside head of taste, Micah Carr-Hill

Premium chocolate maker Green & Black's has launched a UK campaign to find a 'taste assistant'.

The organic chocolate firm said today (18 October) that the role has been created as a result of the "growing business needs of the brand", across the UK and international markets.

The 'taste assistant' will work alongside head of taste, Micah Carr-Hill.

The initiative will be supported with an above the line campaign in Picture House movie theatre's across the UK until 16 December, as well as a nationwide PR campaign, inviting applicants to apply via pieceofgreenandblacks.com.

Potential applicants will also be targeted via Green & Black's existing Lovefilm partnership and a Facebook campaign.

Guillaume Brochen, general manager of the company's UK business unit, said: "This is the first time in 11 years that we have recruited to our taste team. As the brand grows, our ambitions have also grown and it will be impossible for Micah to meet these objectives single-handedly. The taste sssistant will work alongside Micah and contribute to all elements of new product development with the aim of launching some unique NPD in 2012."

The role will encompass a range of duties and applicants should be able to demonstrate the ability to create a variety of chocolate products that complement the existing Green & Black's range. In addition the team are looking for someone with "creative flair and superior taste buds" who will contribute to the NPD portfolio.
