Christmas movie lover offered $1,000 to watch 24 Hallmark films in 12 days 

Something for the weekend: Internet service provider CenturyLink is looking to recruit a Christmas movie fan to watch 24 Hallmark Christmas movies in 12 days.

It is offering to pay the lucky applicant $1,000 (£750) to watch a list of movies, then take to social media and spread the word, and there is no need to move from the sofa because the lucky candidate will get to work at a location of their choice.

According to CenturyLink, the perfect candidate should love Christmas and have plenty of opinions because they are looking for a reviewer that is as honest as possible.  

It is also looking for someone who is experienced in using social media. Alongside watching all of the holiday movies, the  job involves being vocal on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook every time they watch a movie by hashtagging posts to create a Christmas movie buzz.

The perks of the seasonal job include a streaming service subscription, hot cocoa, Christmas cookies, fairy lights, a mini Christmas tree and Hallmark goodies, all to get the successful applicant into the swing of the festive season. 

And just like Santa, the successful applicant must complete the job by Christmas Day, 25 December 2019

Here at Employee Benefits we are seriously contemplating offering up our services for free and watching the movies ourselves. Ho ho ho!
