McDonald's, Greggs and Subway fans could be presented with an exciting opportunity of getting paid £1,000 to eat products from each of the brands.

Six 'Takeaway Testers' are being sought after by UK-based marketplace website MaterialsMarket.com to work out the best food for tradespeople.

The month-long role will see successful applicants paid £1,000 for their efforts, and the cost of each meal will be covered.

Each participant will be expected to sample one of the 20 most popular meals from a range of fast-food UK restaurants for either lunch or dinner.

McDonald's fans could be in luck with the new role.

The meals have previously been voted for by tradespeople.

Meals among the list include a Greggs Sausage and Omelette Breakfast Baguette, a McDonald's large Big Mac meal and a footlong Subway Meatball Marinara.

Successful candidates will be required to keep a log of how they are feeling after each meal, their fitness levels, energy, productivity, sluggishness and overall satisfaction, straight after eating the meal and two and four hours afterwards.

Greggs Sausage and Omelette Breakfast Baguette is among the list of possible products candidates will be trying.

Hopeful applicants must be over the age of 18, but no previous experience or qualifications are needed for the role.

Samuel Hunt co-founder of MaterialsMarket.com, said: "If you head into your local Greggs or McDonald’s early morning or at lunchtime it’s very likely you’ll see tradesmen getting their fuel for the day.

"Although fast food has negative connotations, for tradespeople those meals are convenient fuel for them! In trade jobs you're physically put to work and as a result, burn lots of calories, so a substantial meal is a necessity to keep you full, satisfied and energised throughout the working day.

"We’re really excited to launch this experiment. As we will work with a nutritionist on the findings, we’re looking forward to sharing the best ‘fast food' meals to eat when on the job with our community. If you wouldn’t mind getting paid to test some of the UK’s favourite fast food, please apply now!"

The closing date for applications is 27th May 2022, and successful candidates will be informed shortly after.
