Local pub launches new role that will pay one lucky meat mogul to visit the pub and eat steak this summer

As part of the role, the candidate will be provided with free food and drink for themselves and five other guests and will be required to visit their local Greene King pub and grill for a number of different occasions, reporting back on their experiences.

Interested applicants should visit before Monday June 14 explaining in 250 words or less why they should be the pub and grill’s official Grill Seeker.

Elaine Russell, general manager at the Cuddie Brae said, “There’s nothing better than getting together with friends and family and tucking into a tasty steak in the pub, so after a year of restrictions we wanted to give someone in Edinburgh the chance to do just that – and get paid for it.

“This is a hugely important position, so we’re looking for a real steak connoisseur; someone who knows their rumps from their sirloins and their ribeyes from their fillets, and enjoys nothing more than spending time in the pub with good food and good company.

“You’ll get the opportunity to sample a range of tasty dishes from our new menu, including a whopping 32oz Tomahawk sharer or a mouthwatering 16oz T-bone steak, in exchange for your honest opinions.

“No previous experience is required for the role, just truly talented taste buds, so if you think you’ve got what it takes, fill out an application form and let us know why you should to become our first official Grill Seeker. We’ve fired up the grill, now all we need is you!”

Applications are open now until Monday 14 June.
