If you are a massive been fan, know your Tyskie from your Tennant’s and just happen to be in Singapore, a world-famous Danish brewery will pay you for the privilege of drinking the amber nectar for four hours.
According to a report by online men’s magazine The LADbible, Carlsberg, famous for its “If Carlsberg did..” advertising campaign, is now recruiting for what is probably the best job in the world, if you are not teetotal or watching the pounds. As part of an advertising promotion, Carlsberg’s Singapore branch is offering one lucky person the chance to earn SGD $200,000 (£11,241), which will include drinking as much Carlsberg beer as you want (or can handle) while working as a ‘Carlsberg Ambassador’.
An advert by the brewery states that in addition to drinking copious amounts of alcohol, the job candidate should also entertain their friends for drinks (Carlsberg beer only) and need only put in four hours a day, plus be 18 years of age or over. Other perks of the position include a chauffeur, as clearly you won’t be in much fit state to be behind the wheel, no experience required whatsoever and a chance to quaff as much Carlsberg beer as you want, a good thing if that is your favourite tipple.
General manager of Carlsberg Singapore, Jimmy Toh, told Today Online: “Whatever Carlsberg does, we strive to do better. While the exhilarating job of a beer taster remains the same this year, the successful applicant will earn S$20,000, which is double the salary offered last year – simply to enjoy ‘Probably the best beer in the world’.
“We are looking for the best candidate that exemplifies this spirit, and demonstrates passion for the Carlsberg brand to bag this unique job opportunity.”
Candidates for interview will need to submit creative and witty answers to three questions posed by the beer company, and must tender their applications in by the 4th December 2016.
