Pub Wants To Pay Someone For Drinking At Their Local

Finding a job you think you'll enjoy can be challenging. Competition is stiff for the best ones, meaning the majority of adverts online look a bit like this:


Basically, 'do you want to cold call people?'.

However, a vacancy for what might just be your actual dream job has come up. The role involves going down to the pub and drinking beer.

The right candidate is also expected to get involved with pub games, such as darts and pool. You'll have to sample various foods on the menu as well... Reckon you could handle the demands of the role?


The opportunity has been made available by Hungry Horse, who own more than 200 pubs across Britain. The 'pub-licist' will be expected to make numerous visits to their local Hungry Horse pub and make recommendations in order to help the pub become the best in the country.

So, what's the pay like (as if the promise of free beer isn't enough)? The successful candidate will be paid a salary of £500, which means you may have to call your boss back and ask if you can retract your resignation.

Still, an extra half a grand on top of your salary could help pay for the beers down the... wait that's covered... Guess you could find something else to spend your money on?

Plus, you'll only have to do five 'shifts' to claim your 'salary', which is pretty much unheard of.

By now, you have probably managed to convince yourself that you want the job, but would Hungry Horse want you?

The job advert reads: "The winner should know their cask from their craft, be a pro at pub quizzes and be a key player in any pub sports tournaments.

"The ultimate pub-lover will be put through their paces to ensure they get the most out of their role and help to make their local Hungry Horse stand out from the competition.


"As well as sampling the latest drink selection, the pub-licist will also be required to make a number of visits to their local, in order to provide feedback and recommendations to help make their pub the best in the country."

To apply for the job, visit the Hungry Horse website and tell them why you deserve to be given the role. The deadline for applications is 13 November.
