Bath Rugby has teamed up with Thatchers to recruit a cider ‘taste’ officer for its annual event, The Clash, at Twickenham on 6th April, when it takes on local rivals Bristol Bears for its third annual event.
The job will pay a flat rate of £200 for the day, and will involve sampling the Thatchers that is used at The Clash, to confirm its quality is top notch.
Thatchers pride themselves on the quality of their cider and have teamed up with Bath Rugby to prove if it’s not perfect, it simply doesn’t leave their Somerset Farm.
The ideal candidate will need to be 18 years old or over, be passionate about cider and have a love for rugby – no other prior experience is required, and they will get free entry to the event.
At the event, the new recruit will be sampling the Thatchers used on site before it’s sold to the public, to confirm the taste is to Thatchers’ high level of standard.
Bath Rugby and Thatchers endorses responsible drinking so the candidate will be required to take regular water breaks to rehydrate, eat and watch parts of the game.
He/she will not be allowed to drive after the event, so alternate travel must be prearranged.

Game day gates open for pre-match entertainment at 11am, with the game kicking-off at 2pm.
The ‘taste’ officer will need to arrive at 10:30am and will be on shift for just a few hours, so they can still watch the game. After, that they can head to the West Fan Village to enjoy the rest of their evening.
Last year, more than 61,000 supporters enjoyed a spectacular family day out, full of entertainment and live music, headlined by West Country stalwarts, The Wurzels.
Thatchers Cider and Bath Ales were available for those keen for a refreshing local tipple, alongside the best of the west food stalls.
For the rugby faithful’s, Q&As with legends gone by were all part of a fantastic event with a top-flight Premiership rugby match at its heart.
Tickets start from £15 for adults and £5 for children, a family of four can enjoy a day out for only £40. Tickets can be purchased at www.bathrugby.com/theclash.
Ben Wells from Bath Rugby said: “I can’t think of a better way to come and cheer on the Blue, Black and Whites. To be honest, if I wasn’t working, I’d apply myself!
“Tickets are selling out fast so fans who want to experience an action-packed day of professional rugby and family fun at the end of the season need to act soon.”
