Minister for Milk
You will be a hard-working individual excited about the joy of cow’s milk, whether it’s of the green, red, blue or gold top variety.  You will be expected to leverage your influence to highlight the wholesome joy of milk, and help people rediscover one of dairy’s simple pleasures. If you have a latte love to offer milk, then get applying.

Director of Cheese (Hard)
You can be as mature as cheddar or as joyously young as a creamy Lancashire for this role. Whether pimping up your mac ‘n’ cheese or stuffing your fajitas full of cheesy goodness, you’ll be committed to raising awareness of the unique qualities hard cheese has to offer.  Whilst this role is dedicated to hard cheeses, you will need to have the collaborative abilities to do ‘grate’ work with your colleague in the mirror role, Director of Cheese (Soft). Please see below.

Director of Cheese (Soft)
You will have an appreciation for the nuanced challenge of a role that involves educating the public about the joy of soft cheese, from cracker pairings to spreading tactics. Please note that this role is not limited to helping the Department progress in its efforts to celebrate and showcase the wholesome joy of soft cow’s cheese: if you are a fan of soft cheeses made from sheep’s or goat’s milk, then we, as an equal opportunities employer, would also love to hear from you.

Chief Yogurt Officer
You will have a clear understanding of and passion for yogurt, and will not discriminate between frozen and unfrozen versions of this wholesome food. This role will challenge you to take the lid off the yogurt market, mixing consumption experience with flavour fanaticism to encourage people to indulge in a dollop of yogurt goodness.

Ice Cream Cone-oisseur
Whether you’re 7 or 70, there’s no fun more wholesome than a lick of real dairy ice cream. So no age limits here. If you prefer the real thing to a whipped-up imposter, we want to hear from you.  You will know all about the latest flavour trends, but you won’t be distracted by gimmicks like sprinkles and sauces (though fans of flakes are encouraged).  For you, it’s all about the ice and the cream. And the cone.

Head of Butter
This senior role provides countless opportunities to spread a love of butter across the bread that is Great Britain.  You will understand intuitively the challenge in encouraging people to reappraise butter as more than just a cooking and baking ingredient. You will bring fresh ideas and a sense of fun to your team, as well as an incisive strategic streak that will cut through the day-to-day like a knife through, well, you know the rest.
