Are you tired of your ususal nine-to-five slog in the office? Do you wish your job had a little more excitement? Well, if you're looking for a change in career why not become a waterslide tester? Yes, believe it or not 'waterslide tester' is actually a real job title.

In fact, the travel firm First Choice are currently looking for a waterslide tester to join their company. Better dust off the auld CV!

Digital Spy reports that First Choice is keen to land someone who is willing to travel around Europe and North Africa visiting all of the company's SplashWorld water parks and rating the slides.

The official job listing reads:

"Had your fill of nine to five? After a job that's a little less 'yawn' and a little more 'yeeaaahhh'? Well, we've got something that'll be right up your street. It's a job where 'going to work' means donning your swimming gear and hurtling down waterslides. Yep, we're looking for a Slide Tester who'll test our waterparks for a living."

The listing also promises that "no two days will be the same, as you report back with your slide ratings and come up with new ideas for our customers."

Would you fancy doing this every day of the week for the rest of your career?

So let us get this straight. The company wants to PAY people to have the craic in their water parks? Unreal or what? (Seriously... where do we sign up?!)

First Choice is anticipating a lot of applications for the job and they're planning on whittling down all the CVs they get to a final five. These five lucky applicants will then compete in a challege at a SplashWorld resort.
