‘Veganuary’ is here in full force, but if you’re willing to give the plant-based diet a shot for a little longer, you could earn yourself an impressive salary in the process.
Are you one of those people who chomps down on a cheeseburger while saying things like “you’d have to pay me thousands to give this up”?
Well, one company is willing to take you up on that offer.
Vibrant Vegan – a plant based meal subscription service – is on the lookout for the UK’s biggest meat eater to become its Vegan Curious Coordinator in the hopes they can be persuaded to give it all up in favour of some mouthwatering plant products for three months, and if you think you could endure those few weeks without bacon, burgers, steak and everything else on the meat aisle, you could be in with the chance of earning yourself the equivalent of a £50,000 salary, as well as a supply of vegan ready meals to help ensure you don’t starve over the course of the challenge.
The chosen participant for the role will simply be required to test vegan products and share their honest thoughts on social media.
A registered nutritionist will be on hand to help you plan plant-based meals, while a chef will also be available to help you adjust to the new lifestyle, and if you successfully make it to the end of the three months without caving into your cravings, Vibrant Vegan will then offer one final test – could you say goodbye to meat for the rest of 2021?
If you think the answer’s yes, the company will offer a lifetime supply of their meals – worth £100,000 – in exchange for evidence of continued veganism posted on social media and supplied through a food diary.
Speaking on the launch of the Vegan Curious Coordinator role, Iain Burke-Hamilton – Founder of Vibrant Vegan – said: “There was a time when being vegan was an all or nothing lifestyle choice, and vegan food options were considered lesser than their meat-based counterparts [but] as we head into the New Year, we at Vibrant Vegan want to demonstrate not only the health and environmental benefits of being vegan that we hear so much about, but also highlight that vegan food can, and should, be enjoyed by everyone – even the UK’s biggest meat lover
“We’re incredibly excited to hire our first Vegan Curious Coordinator and to watch them share their journey with people that love good food and are interested in a vegan lifestyle but perhaps feel it’s too much of a commitment or simply aren’t sure where to start.
“Everyone has their own reasons for choosing veganism – we want to show it doesn’t have to be all or nothing, and you don’t have to sacrifice good food for the cause.”
Applications for the Vegan Curious Coordinator close on 25th January 2021, before the challenge begins in February, so you’ve got a few weeks to make your final meaty meals count.

Commentator Arlo White shows off what the Old Trafford gantry walk looks like
Ever wondered what it’s like to be up in the gantry in a football stadium, say, Old Trafford? Well, we certainly have.
You see the odd shot of the commentators sat there on the telly from time to time but it never really gives much away either and, at some venues, it’s quite a ways up there. There’s a little bit of allure behind these mysterious parts of footy grounds that most fans will never get to see.
After hours of mindless scrolling on the social media app, we stumbled across the well-known sports commentator‘s channel where he’s been showing off what it’s like to go in the gantry and one of them is his long walk to crow’s nest up at the Theatre of Dreams.
As it turns out, Arlo’s been doing these videos for a couple of years now, revealing how the gantry looks not only at Old Trafford but other big Premier League grounds too, such as down the road at the Etihad, Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, Tottenham Hotspurs’ sparkly new ground and many more.
Another reason we found ourselves stuck on his TikTok for so long was also because of the other behind-the-scenes details he reveals too, even shedding light on how he prepares for games: note-taking, data sheets, how keeps himself warm up there during those cold nights on comms and so on.
