Do you consider yourself a kebab connoisseur?

The role involves providing honest feedback so that the dishes can be made as enjoyable as possible for other customers - and you will be paid £500 for your opinion.

Among the new dishes are a chicken and chorizo skewer, five spice duck with hoisin sauce, and crispy halloumi with garlic butter.

The chosen candidate will be tasked with sampling each of the new kebabs and the ideal sides and sauces to be served with each one. You will also help staff to decide on the perfect drink to complement each dish and work on developing new hanging kebab options for The Botanist 2020 menu.

And as a seasonal treat, the lucky candidate will have the chance to try the Christmas hanging kebab to ensure it is set to become another festive favourite.
