A Job with a Difference: Sealy offers $10,000 Employment Contract to Literally “Sleep on the Job”
Blogging and sleeping. And get paid for both.
Are you the sort of person who has a habit of drifting off by morning tea, taking nana naps when any opportunity arises or grabbing 40 winks whilst on the couch with the kids? Then Sealy has got the perfect job for you. Australia’s leading bed manufacturer is recruiting for a unique new position within the company – a Sealy Sleep Ambassador – whose sole responsibility will be to sleep on the job!
The successful applicant – who will receive a package worth approximately $10,000 for a month’s work – will be required to keep a sleep journal, reporting back findings on different sleep routines, offering product feedback, as well as blogging about their experiences for Sealy.
In return they will receive $100 per night ‘sleep salary’ for 30 days, along with a top-of-the-range Sealy Posturepedic Queen Size Ensemble to sleep on, a Manchester package and return flights to visit Sealy’s head office in Brisbane.
“The job is 100% genuine,” says Daniel Robinson, Sealy’s training manager. “It will involve a legally binding contract for 30 days with a detailed job description. Overall the ‘package’ is worth around $10,000 – not bad for sleeping on the job!”
The newly created role is designed to coincide with the Sealy Posturepedic Diamond Jubilee - celebrating 60 years of great sleep.
“We’re always receiving feedback from customers about how much they love their Sealy Posturepedic beds, but they wish they had more time to sleep on it! So we decided to give one lucky person the chance to have this dream come true by offering them a job where they are paid to enjoy more sleep on a top-of-the-range Sealy Posturepedic bed”
Interested in applying? Australia residents over the age of 18 can apply from Monday for the role via Sealy’s Twitter page, www.twitter.com/SealyAustralia, stating in 140 characters or less why they would be the perfect Sealy Sleep Ambassador.
A judging panel at Sealy will sort through the applications and find the most unique, interesting or clever response, producing a shortlist of five people. Sealy’s online Twitter community will then vote on who they think should be the successful applicant with the role starting on 1st October 2011.
Job applications open on Monday 22 August 2011.
