​You Can Earn £45 An Hour As A White Chocolate Creme Egg Hunter

Many of you may have been keeping an eye out for those elusive white chocolate Cadbury Creme Eggs, which not only sound delicious, but are also worth a fair bit of cash.

But it seems some people can't be arsed with the treasure hunt, and are instead looking for people to do the hard work for them - meaning you can get PAID to look for the eggs. This is all because a website has launched the world's first professional 'Cadbury Creme Egg Hunter' service.

Bark.com has unveiled the new platform and is recruiting people across the UK for the service, with rates expected to start at £45 an hour.

Professional players will be required to travel to supermarkets and buy the eggs in order to find a coveted white chocolate version, which sounds easy enough, right?

Anyone can sign up as a 'pro' via the Bark.com website, where you'll be asked your postcode and how far you'll be able to travel.

Once signed up, you'll also have to provide a photo ID, be subject to a full background check, and be willing to travel to several supermarkets either in your local area or around the UK. You can also arrange for a contract to be written up between the customer and the hunter to agree on the transfer of prizes and terms.

As well as the hourly rate, which includes the cost of eight boxes of eggs, and travel expenses, there is an option for pro hunters and customers to agree bonuses should prizes be won.

The odds aren't bad, either, as there are 872 prize-winning white chocolate eggs in circulation in this year's Cadbury Creme Egg hunting campaign.

The prizes include nine x £10,000 white chocolate eggs, 22 x £1,000 white chocolate eggs, 66 x £100 white chocolate eggs, 700 x £50 white chocolate eggs, 75 x £10 white chocolate eggs.

Kai Feller, co-founder of Bark.com, said: "The McDonald's Monopoly Player service was a massive hit last year and we think this service could do equally as well.

"This is the second year Cadbury has launched the white chocolate Creme Egg hunt and thousands of people across the UK are understandably eager to find a white chocolate Creme Egg and a high value prize.

"However, some people just don't have the time to be constantly buying eggs from a selection of supermarkets across the country - and that's why we've launched this service.

"We already have professional Cadbury Creme Egg Hunters signed up on site, however demand is high, so we need more hunters to offer the service."

Shops selling the white chocolate eggs include Asda, Morrisons, Tesco, Co-op, Sainsburys, Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, One Stop and some independent retailers.

You've got just over a month to go, as the Cadbury White Creme Egg hunt ends on 21 April at 11.59pm UK time and claims must be made before May 21st.
