With millions of workers starting the new year wishing for a new beginning – this really could be the job of their dreams (literally).
Fancy getting paid to relax, put your feet up and even snuggle down under a duvet? Then don’t be caught napping as this unique vacancy is sure to be snapped up fast.
Bensons for Beds has created a new role and is on the lookout for a Chief Sleep Officer(CSO) to ensure the nation is getting the best sleep possible. 
The winning candidate will be paid £10k for the six-month, part-time position which covers 874 hours of training, sleeping and free shopping.
The candidate will get to test up to one mattress every fortnight, four pillows per month and one bedframe every six weeks.
“It’s the perfect role for anyone who wants to supplement their existing income or is keen to explore the bed industry before deciding to take the big plunge and change careers.”
Whilst product testing will form part of the new CSO role it isn’t all sleeping on the job, as a key element of the job will also require the CSO to visit Bensons factory in Huntingdon and spend time with the innovation team to learn about how the mattress and bed supply chain works from ‘spring to sleep’.
Over 14 hours of ‘in bed’ training will be given to the lucky candidate to help develop their knowledge and understanding of sleep.  They will also learn to recognise the triggers that contribute to poor sleep and the good habits people should adopt to help enhance optimal sleep patterns.
While the position is fully remote, applicants must be based in the UK and hold a relevant qualification from college in marketing or social media. To apply, candidates will need to create a piece of content to explain why they think they’re right for the role.  They will also need to demonstrate strong written communication skills.  
The CSO role could even be performed alongside a more conventional job. One in 10 of those polled by Bensons said they had started a ‘side hustle’ to boost their income in the last year – with selling old clothes on websites or apps the most popular way to earn extra cash for 21%.
