If you're sat at your desk, at work, wondering if it's possible to hang yourself with your telephone cord, you may not be occupationally fulfilled.

Perhaps this is more up your street. A new role has opened up as waterslide tester for First Choice Holidays.

"Had your fill of 9-5?" says the job description. "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 job involves travelling around Europe, rating the slides at First Choice's SplashWorld resorts, reporting back with your slide ratings and coming up with new ideas for their customers. You'll be asked to report your findings through social media channels.

First Choice will whittle down the applications to a final five who’ll then compete in a final challenge at a SplashWorld resort.

"We're looking for someone with bags of enthusiasm who's passionate about the job." The job description continues. "Naturally, you'll be mad about waterparks, happy to test every ride and slide thrown at you. You'll be willing to jet off to our SplashWorld resorts all over Europe and North Africa. Above all, you'll be a fun-loving person with a great sense of humour, happy to take people along for the ride."
