If dropping your mobile phone down the loo or accidentally throwing it across the dance floor are common occurrences in your life, this might just be the job for you, reported the Mirror. 

A mobile phone comparison site is seeking a new candidate to “test the latest mobile phones to destruction”.

Brandon Ackroyd, Head of Customer Insight at TigerMobiles.com, said: “This probably the most unusual role we have ever recruited for but it’s also one of the most important.

“It’s imperative that our customers get the low down on the latest smartphones and how they stack up in real world scenarios.

“Whoever is handed this new role will essentially be paid to test out the smartphones from the extreme nights out, hikes in the country, drops the bath, nothing is off limits.

“With an attractive pro rata salary and the ability to work from anywhere in the UK this role is ideal for anyone after part time work or students looking to help pay their fees.”

The successful applicant of the job will also receive an all-expenses paid night out and a free ‘cheeky nandos’ for every smartphone they test.

The job however, has a serious aspect to it as well. Whoever gets the job will have to provide a full written review of their experiences with the device and provide relevant pictures for publication on the Tiger Mobiles blog.

The workload is expected to be between six and 10 phones per year, with very flexible working hours, the ability to work from anywhere in the UK and a pro rata salary of a £36,500 per annum.

The smartphones for testing are provided free of charge for the review and a company smartphone to take pictures of the review handset is also provided.

Ackroyd added: “We don’t care whether our destruction tester returns the phone to us in bits or as good as new as long as it has been tested to the extreme.

“We want to hear from people with a passion for mobile phones and if you have a history of breaking or dropping them that’s even better!”
