'Dream job' on offer at First Choice


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.

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."

Dream job
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.
