Travel company seeks Professional Slacker


It’s the antithesis of almost any other job ad you’ve likely read. So if you want a job that requires absolutely no work whatsoever (while still getting paid) here’s how you can apply.

TUI, one of the world’s largest travel agencies, is on the hunt for four new employees. But a quick glance at their ad reveals not all is as it seems in the company.

 

 

Instead of hardworking go getters, TUI is seeking those who take great pride in doing as little as possible at any cost, with “no interest whatsoever in interacting with others and no ability at all to multitask”.

 

Experience? Falling asleep at work is “highly appreciated”, but if you’ve not yet ticked that off your list of things to do, they don’t really care as long as you have the  “right mindset”.

 

If you’re too lazy to find the ad, we’ve listed the key requirements below:

 

KEY QUALIFICATIONS

  • Not at all able to think outside the box
  • Feel extremely uncomfortable hearing words like “productivity” and “deadlines”
  • Like to sit or lie down
  • Impressive ability to focus on your own relaxation regardless of external distractions
  • Truly prioritize your own relaxation

 

PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES

None

 

WHAT YOU WILL DO

  • Sit in a beach chair wearing a summer outfit (not only swimwear) with your feet in the sand. Alternatively lie on a beach towel if you find that more comfortable
  • Have a well-needed nap, read a book of your choice, listen to your favorite music, do some meditation or other similarly relaxing activity
  • Completely ignore stressful bypassing commuters and focus on your own relaxation

Please note that duties may not vary.

 

EDUCATION

If any, you hopefully slept through most of it.

 

SALARY

Fixed salary. Guaranteed to be way too high in relation to performance.

 

The job is only temporary, starting 22 January and ending 4 February. And it’s in Stockholm. But you do get a “cozy nine square meter office” that has an interior “highly influenced by Mediterranean beaches and offers an impressive array of ergonomic working surfaces and phenomenal views in all directions”.

 

If you’re up for it, all you have to do to apply is write a couple of lines about who you are and why you’d be good for the job. Attach a picture or video of yourself in your most relaxing pose (preferably taken in a stressful environment) to increase your chances. Resume and/or cover letters are not required.
