Paintball Target Job Up For Grabs

It's often said, in certain high-profile jobs, that you're there to be shot at, but it's not usually meant literally.

However, it's definitely the case for this new opening on the market: being a human guinea pig tester for new paintball bullets. The "human bullet impact tester" will be tasked with ensuring the safety of other players, and the successful applicant will pick up a £40,000 pro rata wage for having blobs of paint fired at them.

It's currently being advertised by UK Paintball, whose founder Justin Toohig said, "Whilst the recruitment of this role may seem somewhat unusual, it is important for our health and safety checks that before any new batches of paint balls are given to paying customers, we check for faults and monitor the damage they can do to the body if they hit an area not protected by safety gear or clothing."

You're going to be earning your money, as the job advert says that they will be testing "worst case scenarios" where limited items of clothing are worn, or protective gear is absent.

It comes with flexible working hours - one or two hours a day, Monday to Friday, around the company's busy Christmas and New Year period - although you may need the recovery time to ice all of those bruises.

Toohig summed up their ideal candidate by saying "We want to hear from people with a high pain threshold and those to whom fear is a foreign concept."
