You could get paid to eat fast food!

If you love chowing down on delicious goodies from McDonald’s, Greggs and Subway, you are in for a treat! Materials Market are looking for six fast food fans to take part in research, where you could get paid £1,000.

Materials Market is a marketplace which connects builders, whether professional or hobbyist, with building materials suitable for them. The aim of the research is to find out which takeaway options are the best for tradespeople on the job.


What do you have to do?

The six lucky candidates will be asked to sample 20 of the most popular fast food and takeaway meals from restaurants across the UK. These include favourites McDonald’s and Greggs. Specifically, some of the meals which will be sampled are the Greggs Sausage and Omelette Breakfast Baguette, a footlong Subway Meatball Marinara and a large Big Mac meal from McDonald’s. It’s all sounding pretty good to us so far.

Candidates – fondly labelled the ‘Takeaway Testers’ – will then be asked to share how they feel after each meal. These feelings will include how long they stay full for, whether the meal causes ‘food comas’, ‘slumps’ or sugar crashes, and their general energy levels. These are all important factors to consider when working in a physically demanding job.

The findings will be analysed by Materials Market, with the expertise and advice of a professional nutritionist, to find out what the best takeaway and fast-food options are for tradespeople on the job.


Are you tempted?

If your stomach is rumbling and this sounds like a dream come true, why not apply for this chance to get paid to eat fast food? The role will last for one month. On top of the payment, all food and drink expenses will be covered by Materials Market. So that’s £1,000 straight in your pocket.

Applicants must be over the age of 18. Applications close 27th May 2022. You will be contacted a few days after this date should you be successful. You can apply here.


Why is this research happening?

Samuel Hunt, co-founder of Materials Market 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.”
