Company offering £80 an hour to watch TikTok

Company offering £80 an hour to watch TikTok

The company is on the hunt for three 'professional TikTok Watchers'

A company is looking to hire three 'professional TikTok watchers’ who - as the name suggests - will earn money for just being sat on TikTok watching clips. If there was ever a job I was made for, it is surely this one.

Influencer marketing company, Ubiquitous, is offering just shy of £80 (£79.34, to be exact) an hour to the lucky folks who nab the job.

So, what exactly is involved? Well, the three candidates who bag the role will watch ten hours of TikTok clips and be paid almost £800 for their trouble.

While watching, the chosen candidates will be tasked with helping Ubiquitous to discover emerging trends by filling out a simple document of recurring trends they spot.

No experience is necessary, but - as you can imagine - the role is a popular one and is likely to get flooded with applicants.

Last time the company started a search for a TikTok Watcher, more than 50,000 people applied and those numbers were whittled down to just one - a student named Rosella Cruz, who has almost 75,000 followers on TikTok.

Talking about the job, Rosella said: “My mom found the job online, and I’m somebody that spends all my days doing TikTok.

"I love content. I knew I wanted to be a content creator since I was younger, and I spend all my day on TikTok anyways, so I felt like this was an opportunity to make money and learn more while doing something that I love.”

Jeremy Boudinet, Vice President of Growth at Ubiquitous, said: “Due to the success of October’s TikTok Watching job, we felt it was only right to bring it back for a second time and make the idea even bigger than before.

"Absolutely anyone can apply as long as they have a TikTok account.

“We’re not looking for an expert or a TikTok connoisseur, we’re just looking for someone who uses TikTok fairly frequently and has an active social media presence of their own.” Sounds simple enough, eh?

All you need to do is fill in an application and give a brief explanation as to why you reckon you deserve the job.

All applicants must be over 18. Oh and although it’s not technically a requirement, the company says you could boost your chances by tweeting @ubiquitousofficial and telling them why you’d be perfect for the job.

If you fancy giving it a shot, applications are open right now and will remain open until 31 May - you can apply here.
