Do you enjoy sitting around in the sun doing feck all? Don't like the idea of interacting with any other member of the human race? We've found the job for you. 

Tourism company Tui has posted a job advertisement online which involves all of the above and more (or should we say, less). 

The position of 'Professional Slacker' is based in Stockholm and the key requirements are as follows:

  • 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 prioritise your own relaxation

The ad goes on to state that duties include 'sitting in a beach chair wearing a summer outfit' and 'having a well-needed nap, read a book of your choice or listen to your favourite music.'

Also, 'having no interest whatsoever in interacting with others and no ability at all to multitask is beneficial but not a requirement.'

There are four temporary positions available and between January 22 and February 4. If you think you have what it takes to be a Professional Slacker you can apply here
