You Can Get Paid £200 A Week To Sunbathe

Sunbathing is a joy we're finally getting to squeeze into our lives at the moment, as the warm weather has arrived.

But what if we told you that you could get paid for working on your tan?

Yep, a gardening and review website, named Whatshed.co.uk, is looking for five people to test out its garden furniture whilst basking in the sun.

And they're paying a whopping £40 an hour for the lucky hires.

They're dubbing the new recruits the Parasol Patrol, and the main objective is going to be to review a whole range of items, from garden umbrellas to sun loungers to cushions and other garden accessories.

The successful candidates will be given a whole array of products to test out for a month, and they'll be asked to judge each on comfort, style and practicality.

You'll have to work five hours a week in total - although, calling it work is generous, tbh.

Very sensibly, you'll be asked to wear factor 50 suncream while road-testing, which will be provided alongside snacks and beverages for the professional sunbathers to enjoy whilst they're working.

The company also stipulates that the sunblock must be reapplied a minimum of every two hours, and candidates must work for no longer than three hours across an entire day.

If you're interested, you can check out the job posting on the website, here.

You don't need any specific qualifications for the role, but the advertisement states that applicants "must be living in the UK, be over the age of 18 and have access to a garden or outdoor space with good sun exposure".

Of course, there's every chance that Britain's sun will disappear again tomorrow. Don't worry, if this happens, they're not expecting us to sunbathe in the rain.

Due to 'unpredictability of the weather' the company has confirmed that if it rains the working hours can be delayed and the employment period can be extended.

The position is being filled ASAP, so you only have until the 11th June to apply.

Kate Fromings from Whatshed.co.uk, said: "We are always looking to improve our products and have a few exciting things in the pipeline, so we thought why not take advantage of the upcoming heat wave and put our products to the ultimate test.

"In my opinion, there is nothing better than relaxing in the sun, so we're expecting a lot of people to apply to be a part of our Parasol Patrol team.

"If you think you could be a great judge on what makes the best garden products and fancy soaking up the sun, please get in touch!"
