The Peanutter position is a full-time, paid, one-year job opportunity from June 2024 to June 2025. Responsibilities and highlights include:

  • Representing the PLANTERS® brand in media interviews and appearances with local radio, TV and digital publications. The Nutmobile is a rolling public relations firm on wheels that garners millions of media and social impressions each year.
  • Entertaining fans across the country at local community events.
  • Engaging with consumers, ensuring everyone has a nutty time and a positive brand experience with the NUTmobile and MR. PEANUT®.

  • College graduate with a bachelor's degree, preferably in communications, marketing, advertising, public relations or a related field.
  • Desire to travel, an appetite for adventure and proficiency in nut-related puns is a must.
