Do you hate your job? Do you live for the weekend? Do you wish that you could get paid to do absolutely nothing?
If so, travel company Tui wants to hire you.
It’s looking to bring on a bunch of ‘Professional Slackers’ to sit around all day doing jack all.
There are foud ‘Fakeation Specialist’ positions up for grabs and the job description is dead simple: all they want you to do is basically to kick back and relax in the Tui office.
You don’t have to have any interest at all in interacting with other colleagues and you’re positively encouraged not to be able to multitask.
‘Previous experience of sleeping at your workplace is highly appreciated,’ Tui says.
The only slight snag is that this job is based in the heart of Stockholm as it’s for Tui’s Nordic arm. But then again, Stockholm might be quite a nice place to get paid to laze around.
‘Your cosy nine square meter office, which you will be sharing with a like-minded colleague, is located in a charming building with the shortest possible distance to some pretty impressive public transport,’ apparently.
‘The interior is highly influenced by Mediterranean beaches and offers an impressive array of ergonomic working surfaces and phenomenal views in all directions.’
So, what qualifications do you need for this dream job?
‘Not be at all able to think outside the box’, ‘feel extremely uncomfortable hearing words like “productivity” and “deadlines”‘ and ‘impressive ability to focus on your own relaxation regardless of external distractions’.
And yes, it’s actually paid.
The temporary positions are paid by the hour, with shifts running from 7am-1pm and 1pm-7pm between 22 January to 4 February.
All you’ve got to do is write a few lines on why you think you should get the job, and attach a picture or video of yourself in your most relaxing pose.
No CVs or cover letters necessary.
You’ve got until Sunday 14 January to apply so you’d better get your skates on. That’s probably the most work you’ll have to do if you land the job.
You can apply here.
