You Can Now Get Paid To Go For A Pint As A ‘Pub-Tester’ – But There’s A Catch
If you love nothing more than a glass of cold beer then this could be the perfect role for you
As the weather heats up, most people will dream of spending their days sat in beer gardens with their mates, enjoying a pint.
But what if you could turn this dream into a reality? Well, thanks to one company, you can.
Serve Legal, who manage age restriction and media compliance testing in the UK are looking for people to ‘audit’ their local pub making sure that the venue is acknowledging the ‘Think 25’ ID policy.
So you can quite literally get paid to go down to the pub.
As well as pubs, the company may also ask you to head down to some other places to put them to the test, such as supermarkets, racecourses, bookmakers and cinemas.
For the role you’ll be assigned to a certain number of audits and then all you have to do is go down to the venue, order the age-restricted product requested (could be alcohol or cigarettes, for example) and check whether you are ID’ed for your purchase.
Following this you submit a short report about the place and whether you were queried about your age.
Serve Legal will pay you for your time as well as any travel expenses – and you get to keep everything that you buy on the job.
The only downside to this opportunity is that the ideal candidate should be aged between 18 and 19, as it’s age-restriction testing.
Though those outside of this age range shouldn’t be too disappointed as the company also offers a wide range of other audits that aren’t dependant on your birth date.
David Sharples, one of Serve Legal’s Area Managers said: “I think what really attracts our auditors to come to work for us is the fact that they can get paid for doing what they might do anyway.
“For example they might be planning on heading to a certain pub, but if they can get paid for doing that, just for some age restriction testing while they’re there – then why wouldn’t they?”
He added: “It really is as rewarding as it sounds. there are so many different types of testing that we do, that I think people get really excited when they hear about us.
“The work offered if flexible and works around what our auditors want to do, which is attractive to people who are in education or possibly even other part-time jobs. However some auditors do make this their full-time job, as the work is so well-paid and available.”
Serve Legal are currently recruiting for ‘pub-testers’ (ages 18-19) as well as non-age restricted auditors (age 20+) across the whole of the UK. You can submit your application here , and can expect to hear back from Serve Legal within the coming days.
