First Choice Holidays

If you fancy a fun new job for the New Year, First Choice Holidays may have the role for you.

The company is recruiting a fun-loving 'slide tester' to work overseas at its SplashWorld resorts throughout the summer.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%

Following the departure of the current slide tester (pictured) after four years in the job, First Choice is looking for a waterpark enthusiast to fill the vacancy.

The much-publicised role involves riding and rating water slides, flumes and pools across 20 SplashWorld resorts in destinations including Majorca, Turkey and Egypt.

The winning candidate will receive a six-month contract with a salary of £20,000 per annum (pro rata), plus a seven-day holiday for two at an all-inclusive First Choice resort at the end.

Luke Gaskins, First Choice Head of Holiday Innovation, said: "This is an amazing job for one lucky person who'll get to escape the 9-5 and instead spend their days rating slides and pools in the sun this summer."

So if a job getting wet, with international travel and a whole lot of fun, sounds like your perfect role, how do you apply?

The ideal candidate is required to have a strong sense of fun and be passionate about waterparks, as well possessing good communication skills to promote the experience through social media.

To apply for the role - dubbed as the 'dream job' - candidates are encouraged to upload a 30-second video pitch at www.firstchoice.co.uk/slidetester before 28th February 2013.

A shortlist of five will be whisked off to a water park to battle it out for the job in a series of challenges.
