Travel agency seeks 'honeymoon tester'

Saturday, 20 March 2010 19:42

A travel company is seeking a couple to spend six months visiting the world's most romantic and exotic destinations to review honeymoon breaks.

Sipping champagne, lying on a white sandy beach and swimming in crystal clear waters isn't your typical day at the office, but for one lucky couple it will involve just that after a travel agency advertised for a 'honeymoon tester'.

In what could possibly be the world's greatest job, one fortunate pair will be paid £18,000 to sip champagne and relax on beaches in locations including the Maldives, Thailand and Zanzibar.

According to the job description, they will be required to sample cocktails, test outdoor waterfall showers and '"lie in hammocks slung between two palm trees".

After six months of travelling, the hard-working couple are then asked to report back their findings to the travel agency.

According to the company, candidates must "appreciate good service, fine dining and luxurious surroundings" as well as have a "friendly personality".

The position, billed as the "Ultimate Job", was announced by Irish travel agency Runaway Bride and Groom.

Applications for the job can be made online until 12am on April 1.

Rosemarie Meleady, managing director of Runaway Bride and Groom, said: "The job is so horrendous that we are willing to pay the candidate 20 thousand euro for six months of their time.

"And, as it would be very difficult to test out the rose petal Jacuzzis, hammocks made for two, the outdoor waterfall showers and the infinity pools alone, we will pay for their romantically linked other half to accompany them on the trip.

"The successful candidate will be required to report back their verdict to us."

To qualify, potential employees will make a 90 second video marketing Ireland as a wedding destination of choice and to say why they and their romantically-linked other half are the best couple for the job.

They must also write 200 words stating why they should be chosen for the job.

The 'honeymoon tester' is said to rival 'the world's best job' which was last year named as caretaker of an Australian tropical island which went to Ben Southall, from Hampshire.
